Dream interpretation; Sigmund Freud & Carl Jung; group discussions guided by handouts; personal journal-keeping; cool-looking PowerPoints; plus worksheets and a crossword puzzle for review. This is more than an activity--it's a great mini-unit that can fill a whole week if done in its entirety and supplemented with a good video (assessments not included).
Students love to discuss dreams in class. Dreams seem to be universally fascinating. This dream journal project and activity package will allow you to tap into that natural enthusiasm and make it work for your classroom. It can be used for stand-alone, one-day lessons or as a basis for a mini-unit on dreaming and dream interpretation. The package includes: a well-designed handout of instructions for the Dream Journal Project; multiple in-class worksheets for group analysis of dreams; a dream interpretation practice worksheet; PowerPoint lectures on dream symbolism and modern theories of dreaming (with print-friendly handout versions); plus an original crossword puzzle for review.
In my school this dream-journal project is so popular, some students have told me that it's the primary reason they registered for my class!
