Today you have a cover teacher and were asked to bring your Art/Design work in so you can catch up with that. Vienna please go up to Mr Martinez and check it’s OK for 3 or 4 of you to go and use the art room. The rest of you get on with your art. You will be given another couple of periods in the next couple of weeks to work on this too and help you get up to speed with Art/Design as you have missed classes on our behalf.

You will create a short presentation on your disorder. (3 mins max as an individual or 5 mins max as a couple) answering a research question you will create. It should be about stigma and treatment. It should be informative and cover :-

  • Causes
  • Stigma – various issues facing people with the disorder.
  • Named case studies and academic research
  • Treatment options – can it be cured or just treated? Are there multiple options for treatment – best options, new options – how do the Japanese deal with it?

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.”


Disorders – causes treatments and stigma.

DISORDERS – Causes, treatments and stigma

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?

Material for exam

Homework for the weekend:-

For the grade 10 exam I will be assessing your critical thinking skills through source analysis (OPVL skills). So please think about focusing on a current issue in the world and formulate a research question you would like to answer about it. Please do this by Monday’s lesson.

Then you will find 6 sources, at least 1 visual, which you will use to answer the question you set. It’s similar to your Edo essay. We will come up with a TSC together.
