  • Page ID
  • Now it's time to write the first draft!  Here is the assignment:

    1. Choose Anxiety, OCD, Depression, Schizophrenia.

    2. The objective for this assignment is to list at least 10 myths about your topic and then counter those myths with facts.  After you are done researching the myths and facts, create an essay mythbusting that disorder.  Remember back to the depression video, which has a section on myths, for an idea of what myths should look like.

    3. Your research should include at least three sources and at least five myths. 

    4. An easy way to structure the essay would be to bust a myth in each paragraph, so that the paragraph would begin with the myth, then some statistics, facts, or other evidence that would explain the reality.  Then all you would need is an intorduction and conlcusion which ties the myths together!
