This two-part lesson gives your students a way to engage creatively with the history of abnormal psychology, as well as the 3Ds of abnormality and the function of the DSM-V.
Students will jigsaw reading information on 5 different "eras" of abnormal psychology, from the 4 Humors to modern biopsychology. They then teach each other about their era and create summative mind-maps to visualize their learning.
The lesson includes an optional mini-lesson on the 3Ds (deviance, distress, and dysfunction) and the DSM. I've create a doodle-able graphic organizer for students to use as they watch the Crash Course video linked within.
