Mapping Characters' Brains
by Courtney Ellis '02, Upper School Teacher & Counselor
Shorecrest Upper School students taking AP Psychology applied their knowledge of the functions of brain parts in a "Celebrity Brain Project." Students had to correctly label parts of the brain as well as creatively rename those parts in a way that connected to their function for a specific character of their choice. Students additionally wrote sentences explaining how the brain part applies and connects to that character.
