Exploring Mental Illness
Every round in our English Literacy class, we always have a different theme to learn. But for this round, we have a theme to learn called “Exploring Mental Illness”. When I first heard it, it sounds interesting to me to learn about mental illness. This round, teacher had divided into two different unite one is about “Exploring and Understanding Mental Illness and Health” and another one is about “Examining Mental Illness in Literary Works and Film”. In the first two weeks, we learned about what is Mental Illness as well as what is Stigma. Continue two the next 4 or 5 weeks we continue two our second unit which is “Examining Mental Illness in Literary Works and Film”. In this time, we learn about the story that the authors were written related to Mental illness. There are three different authors which are Edgar Allan Poe, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Gabrielle Roy. During our 4 or 5 weeks, we have read a book from each author which are The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe, The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the last story is Alicia by Gabrielle Roy.
