Paper #2 Media perceptions of disorders
There are many misconceptions in popular culture about the exceptionalities and/or disorders we will cover over the course of the semester. Televisions shows and movies often exaggerate some of the tendencies shown by these individuals. These exaggerations not only give a false perception of what it is like to have one of these exceptionalities but can affect the way others treat individuals with exceptionalities. For this I would like each of you to do the following:
a. Select a topic from the course and describe the major characteristics of the exceptionalities, the challenges these characteristics may present educationally, and the educational best practices according to recent research. This should be done using appropriate APA formatting using approved sources (to be discussed further in class)
b. Chose a movie or TV program in which one of the characters has the exceptionality discussed in part A. After briefly describing the program discuss how well the program portrays the exceptionality (citing specific examples) and if you believe the portrayal could lead to any negative stereotyping
Overall the paper should be approximately 7-9 pages double spaced (including the title and reference page) and be properly cited using APA formatting (no abstract needed). Papers without a proper title and reference page will be subject to a 10% grading penalty. Papers that do not use proper citation will be subject to a 15% grading penalty. You should use at least three sources for your paper, not including the movie/TV show.
