This class is ideal for students who have an interest in psychology and psychological disorders. Have you ever wondered why Buzz Lightyear is the only toy who doesn't know he's a toy? Or why does Eeyore constantly seem down? We'll answer these questions and more in this class.

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.

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.
