I will be absent today

Hi guys, I will be absent today. Here is the work:

Grade 9C: Work on Kamakura Project part 2

Grade 10C: Work on disorder video

Have a nice day!

InS 9 and 10 exam review

Here are the study guides for next week’s exams:

Grade 9: Monday May 8th, 9:10AM,  Exam on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Grade 10: Tuesday May 9th, 9:10AM, Exam on map skills and coastal processes

 

InS 10: Disorder research question on stigma or treatment

Now that you have a good understanding of a disorder, its prevalence and its symptoms, it is time to look at stigma and treatment.

  • What has surprised you in your research or in the posters you have looked at
  • What are some misconceptions that people have about mental disorders?
  • Can mental disorders be treated? How?
  • What are some misconceptions that people have about treating mental disorders?

Researching Psychology. A message from Ms Vance:

“YIS has JSTOR, which you can browse by subject, as well as basic and advanced searches of course. Here’s a link to the Psychology section of JSTOR, which you can search within exclusively.  You’ve got access at school by IP address, but to use it at home, you have to create a personal account while you’re at school first.
 
EbscoHost – Science Reference Center database also has psychology resources, although they are likely easier to access if you look at the subject terms SRC uses before you start searching. Working with databases, as you know, can be frustrating when encountering them for more or less the first time. I would be DELIGHTED to come into your classes and train kids how to use them. 🙂
 
Same goes for History, economics and geography. They’ve been exposed to these databases as part of their PP but subject specific training on how to use them on a DP level would be very helpful for them.”

Summative assessment: In your same groups, you will create a short video on your disorder, answering a research question that you will create about either stigma, treatment or both

Your research question question must be:

  • informative to your audience
  • about a stigma or the possible treatment of your disorder, or both
  • focused about a subject that can be answered in the timeframe
  • relevant to your disorder
  • relevant to Japan

Possible ideas explaining:

  • causes
  • stigma (in Japan)
  • multiple treatment options
  • how you can help in Japan
  • where people can go for help

Your video must clearly put the question in context and go on to answer it fully through:

  • Named case studies and academic research
  • Developing an understanding of the various issues facing the disorder
  • Where relevant, information about Japanese organizations helping people with the disorder
  • 2.5 to 3.5 minutes long

Exercise 2: Models of abnormality


Model: A set of assumptions or concepts that help psychologists and/or scientists explain and interpret observations

  • Some may conflict with each other or be better suited for certain conditions

In groups, explain the following models of abnormality, as well as their ethical and practical implications.

Do some research of an actual case study where your model has been used, and explain it to the class, using the model to structure your explanation.

  • Medical model

  • Handwritten annotations of site for each type of renewable energy usage with:
    • Type of energy
    • Expected energy production
    • Statistics to support your choice

Ins 10 Sustainability in your Community

We have been discussing the causes and consequences of global climate change.

We will now look at ways that carbon emission can be reduced:

In order to create a more sustainable community, we must be innovators.”

Think about conservation, recycling, reduction, reuse, substitution and sustainability

1.Energy saving

How you could save energy in your home or your community?  It has to have a practical application?

How will you implement the ideas – get family/government/school on board and make them do it?

2. Sustainability

Describe a way to make your community more sustainable and reduce their use of other resources.

3. Action

Suggest a way to take your ideas to the wider community? 

 

You will present your ideas to the class during the week of January 30th
Maximum 5 minutes long. Be creative!!

I will accept groups if they are of mixed gender and are with people you have not paired up with in this class so far this year.

Write down your groups and topics here
