Agenda – 

Task #1 – Quick quiz on yesterday’s material

Task #3 – Lets take a look at some Costa’s Level III questions developed by some students to analyze H.H. Holmes’s behavior and attempt to answer them.

Question #1 – “What is the theme behind his murders?” – Davon M.

Question #5 – “How would you improve police’s investigation of H.H. Holmes?” – Darius P.

Task #4 – Now we will be introduced to Psychiatric Disorders Associated With Criminal Behavior (Version 3). On a piece of regular paper, folded hot dog style, we will be making a brief list of common disorders and noting some fictional examples for each.

Task #5 – Students will set up a paper to take observational data on a fictitious character named Prot. We will be using a Cornell note taking style approach.

Task #6 – After viewing the video clips of Prot you will be diagnosing him with a mental disorder(s). We will be using the Chavez Academic Paragraph Writing Format. Your diagnosis paragraph will be evaluated by yourself and a peer using the CCHS Academic Writing Rubric.
