Gender and Adolescent Development Unit

If you have been gone the past two days you missed out on an emotionally charged debate on which Gender is better than the other.

We have taken one quiz, see the Unit plan on the Gender & Ad Dev Unit Page (Look for the link on the right side of the screen.  You can turn in notes on your reading to make up for the quiz.

We will be working on your Adolescent Development paper in class, you can finish it up at home and be ready to turn it in the day of the test.  The instructions are the last page of the Unit plan.

Remember to bring a children's book with you to class on Day 4.

Unit 4- Day 1&2

During this unit, we will be going over stress and health, therapy, and psychological disorders. 

Day 1 was devoted to the different types of stress we feel and the different stressors we have. The students also chose which psychological disorder they wanted to do their research paper on. We also started watching the movie Tuesdays with Morrie and identified the different stresses that are presented in the film.

On Day 2 we continued talking about stress and ways we cope with the different stressors we have.
All the resources and handouts we used are below.
