In this project, students research and examine the following Psychological Disorders in the media: Anxiety Disorders, Personality Disorders, Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders, Eating and Sleep Disorders, Substance Abuse-Related Disorders, Mental Health Services and Treatments. Students collect found articles in a "Psychology in the News" Scrapbook. Links and QR Codes included.
I have used this project as an extra credit project in my Psychology class. I have also used this project in my Current Events course. It also makes a fun activity for students on "sub days."
This resource is appropriate for high school-level Psychology and Current Events courses.
