Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will identify their own personality type through class discussion, visuals, and a worksheet.  Through conversation, they will use their critical thinking to learn how to use personality typing to better communicate and understand others.
Disclaimer: Personality typing is not about mental health or the mental health field.  I have taken all of the coursework for my second bachelor's degree in psychology.  I have spent a few years taking part in online learning groups about personalities and personality typing, where I was able to find books, articles, and learn a lot about typing - particularly MBTI.  I wrote a professional development seminar on personality typing.  I’ve coached handfuls of people through finding their MBTI type, have enough knowledge on the subject to relay it to this age group in a fun and interesting way while promoting higher-order thinking skills at the same time.

The teacher will supply a worksheet for the student to complete.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
