Product Description
This activity allows for students to apply their new understanding of the DSM-5 through the diagnosis of various well-known fictional characters based on brief descriptions of what is troubling those characters. This activity can be accomplished as a group or independently. The way that I accomplished this activity, which I felt the kids enjoyed, was to assign two groups in the class the same character. First, they provided a potential diagnosis with their original groups. Then they met with a member of the other group who had their character. This individual provided them with a "second opinion." I felt that this activity encouraged them to think more in depth about the content because they had to provide a clear rationale for their diagnosis.
