Psychiatric Disorder


Task #1 – I want to discuss with students a new lesson plan format for the website This should not take more than 5-6 minutes because I am looking for student feedback on how to improve the new format I have written.

Task #3 – On the index card you were given to do the writing exercise I want you to turn it over and state what you think Prot is primarily suffering from. Lets take 2 minutes to do this. Then I am going to want volunteers to share out.

Student Work Evidence:

“Skizophrenic” – Israel/ Andrea

“PTSD” – Jose/ Aaliyah/Charles / Elaijah

“Personality Disorder” – Kenny

“Delusional Disorder” – Darius/Sayanara/ Haley

Task #4 – Now I want you to look back over the evidence we collected. Downloadable File -> K-PAX – Class Behavioral Observations (1-21-2015)

Task #5 – After reviewing the evidence what three pieces of evidence do you think do the best job supporting your claim and list them on your index under what you think Prot is suffering from. After you finish I want volunteers to share out again.


Write your official introductory paragraph for what you think Prot is primary suffering from. Don’t forget to use the index card you created from class to help you.
