Unit plan

  1. 1. Unit Plan: Abnormal Psychology Abstract: Abnormal Psychology encompasses a variety of topics from history, to disorders, treatments, and on and on. The interesting thing about Abnormal Psychology is that a lot of it is about moods, anxieties, feelings, and thoughts that we all have sometimes. It the actual disorders, it’s just taking those normal behaviors and feeling and making them extreme. We will go from history, to mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and finish off with a movie “Sybil”. MondayAudience:This is a High School senior class of 22 students. There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Of those students, 13 are white, 7 are black, and 2 are Hispanic. State the Objective:Today, the students will complete a WebQuest learning about the history of abnormal psych to start the day. They will break up into groups of 3 or 4, log into the computers available (in the classroom or designated computer lab), follow the WebQuest directions from there. After completed the groups will individually discuss one or two things that stood out to them, something they may have learned that they didn’t know before, or something they found particularly interesting. Turning the attention to the class as a whole, each group will tell myself and the class what they chose to discuss. The students will have the entire class period to complete the webquest, discuss in groups, report back to the class, and have time for questions or comments. They will complete this with 100% accuracy. Select Methods, Media, &Materials: YouTube, internet, links, all on the WebQuest Utilize Media and Materials:(Webquest) http://zunal.com/webquest.php?w=224800, (YouTube)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkzyCp7QqzM, (other links) http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Animism.html, http://www.salemwitchmuseum.com/education/, http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2011/02/17/the-birth-of-the-mental-asylum/, http://psychologyshistory.umwblogs.org/hannahs-page/important-influences/, http://www2.webster.edu/~woolflm/dorotheadix.html, http://www.simplypsychology.org/perspective.html Require Learner Participation:Students will break off into the assigned groups of 3 or 4. They will go to a computer where they will follow the links. As a group, students will work together to come up with one thing that they learned while going through the WebQuest: something they liked, learned, or found interesting. After everyone is finished, we will come together as a class and each group (having one or two people being the main speaker would be easier) will tell the class what they found interesting and why. We can share ideas and discuss the history of Psychology.
  2. 2. Evaluate and Revise: This will be graded entirely on participation. If each individual group comes up with something they all learned and shares with the class, they have completed what I wanted you to. 10/10- Shared the topic, why you picked it, and what you thought was interesting. 5/10- Simply state a topic without explaining why is was chosen. 0/10- No topic was chosen or shared. TuesdayAudience: This is a High School senior class of 22 students. There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Of those students, 13 are white, 7 are black, and 2 are Hispanic. State the Objective:After discussing the mood disorders through a PowerPoint presentation and showing a tutorial of how to create a Tumblr, the students will have an understanding of the individual disorders. Next each student will create a Tumblr account and demonstrate a mock page that would show what a person who had their chosen disorder (i.e. Bipolar I) would perhaps have on their Tumblr page. You need to decorate your page and blog or re-blog certain images or quotes that fit your person. The students will add me(gabecapri.tumblr.com) so I can go on and see their page. The students will work on this during class and finish at home if extra time is needed. They will complete this with 100% accuracy. Select Methods, Media, &Materials:PowerPoint presentations, internet, Tumblr Utilize Media and Materials:(PowerPoint for Moods) on wiki, (PowerPoint Tutorial for Tumblr) on wiki, (example Tumblr: Bi-Polar I) on wiki, (my Tumblr to add) gabecapri.tumblr.com Require Learner Participation: Students will follow along with the PowerPoint’s. Then by using their own critical thinking, they will think of a mood disorder they’d like to use and create a Tumblr demonstrating someone who has that disorder’s thoughts, what they’d blog and re-blog, etc. After adding me on Tumblr so that I can see the work done, the assignment will be complete. Evaluate and Revise: Once everyone has added my Tumblr page, I can go on and see what work everyone has done and make sure that each student has grasped whichever mood disorder they decided to use. As the long as the Tumblr is made, correlates with their chosen disorder, and I can see it that is how I will evaluate what has been learned. WednesdayAudience: This is a High School senior class of 22 students. There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Of those students, 13 are white, 7 are black, and 2 are Hispanic.
  3. 3. State the Objective:The students will follow along on the PowerPoint presentation. They will then break off into six groups where each will have one of the anxiety disorders. I will show them an example of a video so they have something to go off of. Each group with plot their video in which they will reenact what their given anxiety disorder would be like. They will then shoot the (2 minutes give or take) video and upload it to the class YouTube account, where I can then see them. This will be a one day activity, and they will complete with 100% accuracy. Select Methods, Media, &Materials: PowerPoint, YouTube, paper & pen to jot down ideas and plot the video, phone or camera Utilize Media and Materials: (PowerPoint presentation) on Wiki, (students creating YouTube video example) on wiki, phone or camera to shoot the video Require Learner Participation: Students will follow along on the PowerPoint. They will then break off into six groups where each will have one of the anxiety disorders. Each group with plot their video in which they will re-enact what each anxiety disorder would be like. They will then shoot the (2 minutes give or take) video and upload it to the class YouTube account. Evaluate and Revise: Once all the videos are uploaded I can go on and see their participation and what they learned through their videos. ThursdayAudience: This is a High School senior class of 22 students. There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Of those students, 13 are white, 7 are black, and 2 are Hispanic. State the Objective:Today, the student will follow along on the PowerPoint about personality disorders. After that is completed, the students will go to individual computers and create a blog on blogspot.com to create a post about which personality disorder they think would be the worst to have. After writing a blog that is a minimum of three paragraphs (intro, disorder, why you think it’d be worst) we will add each other as a class, and each student will comment on at least three of their classmates’ blogs about one thing they agreed with and their opinion. This is a one day activity, finished at home if necessary, and done with 100% accuracy. Select Methods, Media, &Materials: PowerPoint slides, internet, computer, blog Utilize Media and Materials: (PowerPoint on personality disorders) on wiki, computer and internet to create and write blog and leave comments, (example of blog) on wiki Require Learner Participation: The students will participate by paying attention to the PowerPoint with the information they’ll need to create their blogs.
