This is a writing assignment for High School or College 'Introduction to Psychology' students. This assignment asks students to identify a movie where one of the characters has a psychological disorder. The student then uses the text and any other materials to 'diagnose' the character. Once diagnosed, the student will recommend treatments. This assignment is a good way to introduce students to the complexity of psychological disorders. It also will allow them to write about something they are interested in - namely the character in the movie they picked.
If you do not need students use APA or MLA format, simply modify the instructions.
Student instructions and a rubric are included.
