This is an activity meant to help students apply and rehearse psychological disorders. This is best used in a Psychology, AP Psychology, or health class.
After teaching students about important disorders from the DSM-V, they create a quiz as a method of reviewing.
First, students are given a slip at random which designates an assigned disorder to them. There are 39 disorders total, ranging from OCD to PTSD to personality disorders and more.
Then, students are instructed to write a paragraph which describes a person exhibiting symptoms of the disorders without using any of the words from the disorder name itself in the paragraph. Students then turn these scenarios in to the teacher.
Finally, the teacher reads the student-written scenarios in a random order and students attempt to figure out which disorder applies to which scenario based on the symptoms described.
The word file includes a description of the assignment, a section for students to indicate quiz question answers, a slip to write their scenario paragraphs, and also cut-away slips of all the disorders to be handed out to students at the start of the activity.
