This assignment includes 33 questions on the Time magazine article “Headbanger Nation,” available for free on this website:
I used this as a partner activity for my on-level psychology class, and printed the article and put it in my emergency sub folder for my AP Psychology class. It would also be appropriate in a health or biology class.
The article discusses the prevalence of concussions in the United States, and how society contributes to the high number of concussions. It also discusses the neurological effects of concussions, methods that are being developed to prevent concussions, and brain imaging techniques to identify concussions. In the end, it asks students to think about what they should do if they, or someone they know, should suffer from a concussion.
Students are asked mainly comprehension level questions in this assignment. It is an excellent substitute assignment, as it requires little teacher assistance.
Student friendly objective included in the teacher introduction.
