This contains a selection from my College Biopsychology text on Androgenic Insensitivity Syndrome. I have my students read the selection and write a reaction paper.
It just about makes my students heads explode because they have never heard of anything like this in their lives. A woman,...finds out she is XY,...a man. Pretty extraordinary!
My students find this fascinating but I got some scathing criticism from a mom this year who thought this assignment was too sexual. I responded that while it was about x's and y's it was not about "technique." My classes are only open to Jr's and Sr's so I don't think it is inappropriate but you be the judge of what is best for your students.
My principal said she didn't learn anything like this in Psychology until she was in college so I probably will not use it anymore...I still think it is extraordinary.
It is worth the $1.50 just to read the selection. You could take this into a ton of different directions, use it to spark class discussion, you name it. In the selection they DO NOT notify the patient she is a man...there are some serious discussions on ethics lurking here.
