    3) Adolescence lecture/discussion - An edited down version of the original lecture will be given in class (and can be found below). The written notes go on right-side pages beginning after "Child Development" ends. (In the model, that's on page 42.)

    4) Instructions given on the next project, to personalize the Five Stages of Grief. The directions on what to do is below.

    5) Crash Course episodes, "Monkeys and Morality" and "Adolescence." The worksheets can be found below for extra credit.

    NOTE: I added on here an additional extra credit opportunity for everyone. Below you can find the links for both the activity and worksheet of PsychSim - Who Am I? If you choose to do this, it will be due by the end of next week.
