Class Experience

1]  Learners will be able to define psychological disorder
2]  Learners will be able to identify psychological disorders illustrated by six cartoon characters
3]  Learners will be able to identify at least 2 elements of each psychological disorder, as outlined by the DSM 5 (Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, with M.Ed. in Community counseling and a B.A. in Sociology.  I am licensed to diagnose mental health disorders, though not specifically for cartoon characters. :)
Paper/pen for note taking. There will be a handout that outlines that information covered in the lesson. It can be uploaded in the classroom, and used to follow along or take notes. Students should also be familiar with the cartoon figures which will be discussed in this class. YouTube is a good source of clips of each of these characters. While gifs will be used in the class, no videos will be shown.
Informal assessment will take place throughout the lesson by asking students if they have questions or comments throughout lessons.  There will also be opportunities to answer poll questions in the chat box.  
45 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Parents know best if their learner will more comfortable with them by their side.  The content of this course doesn't require a parent, but the nature/personality of the specific learner may.
YouTube is a good resource for viewing clips of each cartoon character, in order to refresh learner's memory prior to class. Videos will not be viewed in this class.
