Students struggle to find the parallel between the Perspectives of Psychology and the Personality Theories even though they are nearly the same. Use this handout to either accompany your Personality Unit, or if you combine the Perspectives Unit with the Personality Unit, use it at the start of the year. This activity assesses students understanding of the similarities between the two units.
Differentiation: The “green version” is an easier handout for struggling students. It has the perspective explanations and more of it is completed. The “blue version” is for higher-achieving students, where they first write in their own words each of the perspectives' definitions. Students then apply the personality theory to The Grinch’s behavior.
