ou may use bullet points within the Response area of the chart instead of complete sentences

  1. Choose a mental illness listed in Chapter 9 which you would like to explore. Make sure you are choosing one specific disorder and not a general category of disorders.  For example, “mood disorders” would need to be narrowed down to one type of mood disorder, such as bipolar disorder.
  2. Research your chosen mental illness and fill in this chartPreview the document. Once you save the document you will be able to type directly into the chart.  You may use bullet points within the Response area of the chart instead of complete sentences, but make sure your responses thoroughly answer the Requirements.  Some answers will be much longer than others.
  3. You may use your book, but you will need to research on the Internet to accurately complete the chart. I have included a few helpful websites, but you are not limited to these websites.
  4. Once you have completed the chart, save your document and upload it through the assignment on Canvas.

*Plagiarism will result in an automatic zero.  Please review the rubric.
