Students explore the challenging, often misunderstood medical field of Mental Illness. Students come to terms with difficult topics such as schizophrenia, depression, suicide and eating disorders through the knowledge-based material in the unit. The activities and worksheets included in our unit follow closely with the material in part one. Part two encourages students to contemplate the concepts contained in the unit as they design their own exam. Part three adds flexibility to our unit, suggesting assignments that could be coordinated with the core lesson topics, used as enrichment, or used at the end of the unit as culminating activities. This Health lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
