Manic-Depressive Disorder

For health teachers and may counselors, this reading on manic-depressive disorder and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet might be useful. This illness is relatively common in teens, in my experience.

Puberty

First thing on Monday morning, the first of the summer break, here is a reading on puberty and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.

Anxiety

Yesterday was the last day of school in Springfield. Now I must get busy finding a job for the fall. As it appears my apartment in The Bronx has sold, I need to find a place to live as well. In other words, in the next couple of months, I must undertake two of the most stressful activities in which humans involve themselves.

So, this morning seems as good a time as any to post this reading on anxiety and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet. If you work with anxious kids, and if the statistics on anxiety in kids are true, I suspect you’ll find a use for this in your classroom.

Anorexia

While it is far from a light topic of discussion, I nonetheless suspect that more than one teacher or guidance counselor will find a use for this reading on anorexia and the vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that accompanies it.

Sanitation (n) and Sanitary (adj)

A couple of days ago I posted a context clues worksheet on the verb sanitize. I’d forgotten, or overlooked, the other two members of the family of words I’d worked into context clues worksheets: so here are two more on the noun sanitation and the adjective sanitary if you need them.

Acne

It’s the end of the school year, which means, like most teachers, I imagine, I am, as are most teachers, exhausted to the marrow or body and soul. I’d planned to put up a complete lesson plan on “trade and commercial interaction as a cause of history.” But the material is both incomplete and in need of revision. Look here next week for that material, if it interests you.

For today, here is a reading on acne, the bane of every teenager’s social existence, and its attendant vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.
