Visualising cultures – wood block prints or Ukiyo-e.

History of ukiyo-e and it’s spread

Famous Japanese Ukiyo-e prints 

Heroes of Ukiyo-e

Ukiyo-e heroes kickstarter

We will look at some of these and discuss how useful they are, also look at a framework for analyzing visual texts, “The Five C’s,” .  Using the checklist on there you will start to analyse your image. You will also go through and focus on evaluation using  OPPVL  . 

You need to be able to fully analyse and evaluate as you will be doing this after we come back from the Edo museum when you present an analysis of the 1 thing you took a picture of.

You will then do a summative, in class essay, which is based on sources.

PRESENTATIONS

NEXT ASSIGNMENT

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?
  • Where relevant, information about Japanese organizations helping people with the disorder

Due = 10 A 18th Feb & 10 D 19th Feb  – Links to presentations   TSC

Creating a good research question

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?

  • For what purpose did the “amateur diagnosticians” label Mr Trump a narcissist?
  • What is the purpose of the  letter to the editor?
  • What does it say about people’s perception of mental illness?
  • What does it say about stigma?

 

Stigma – Breaking the stigma and shame of mental illness

You were all asked to create an ATL portfolio where you would do reflections on your work as we progressed. Can you please update these.

10 – 1

10 – 4

Your coastal study was a massive piece of work covering many ATLs and all criteria. Please make a comment on this padlet.  Add your name to start a column – Add reflections and thoughts about usefulness and use of the  TSC and usefulness of focusing on specific ATLs. Be honest and state whether you used it more than usual, when you used it how effectively etc. Did you make an effort? do you think it will help improve your grades if you continue to use the TSC as a guide and focus on certain ATLs?

PSYCH – ABNORMAILITIES.

Today we will start the new unit on Psychology , in particular focusing on behaviour. Introduction to abnormality.

Discuss:

  • What are phobias?
  • What causes phobias?
  • How are they treated?
  • Are they more nature or nurture?
  • What is the difference between fear and phobia?
  • What would you consider abnormal human behavior?
  • How can we measure such behavior?

Exercise 1 :-

  • Make sure read the handout on Abnormality.
  • In groups, explain the following ways of measuring abnormality and their evaluation, using specific examples:
    • Statistical infrequency
    • Deviation from social norms
    • Failure to function adequately
    • Deviation from ideal mental health

Exercise 2:-

Then go to Kahoot and play the ‘definitions of abnormality quiz’

Watch this – Models of abnormality

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

  • Spells out basic assumptions and sets guidelines for investigation and treatment
  • Some may conflict with each other or be better suited for certain conditions

In groups, use the handout to 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
  • Psychoanalytic approach
  • Behavioral approach
  • Cognitive Approach
  • Humanistic approach
