Students will attempt to both diagnose and identify what type of killer the fictional character Norman Bates is to within 75% accuracy of his true diagnosis.


Task #1 – Turn in parent letters if you have not done so yet.

Task #2 – quick quiz on mental disorders. This is just to check to see what ones you remember the best.

Task #3 – Finish Norman Bates film clips.

Task #4 – Students will form up groups and discuss their observation notes. When you come to a conclusion as to what mental disorder Norman Bates is suffering from as well as what type of  killer he is then sent one group member to the board to write it in the grid for your group.

Task #5 – Academic paragraphs – This time in your written up diagnosis you will have two paragraphs. The first paragraph will be about what type of mental disorder(s) do you think he is suffering from and a minimum of three pieces of evidence to support it. The second paragraph will be about what type of killer do you believe he is. Is he organized or disorganized? Again, make sure to cite three pieces of evidence to support your claim.

Today’s teacher question: “What type of killer (organized vs disorganized) do you think Norman Bates is and what is the main evidence to support your answer?
