Lesson 1 (from Chapter 1)
Josephine is afraid of most everything and it seems to control her actions. The objective of this lesson is to look at fear.
1) Discussion: Are any of Josephine's fears understandable? Explain why or why not.
2) Classwork: Have the students write a short essay on the common reactions that people have to fear.
3) Homework: Have the students do research over phobias. Have them pick one phobia that seems to be unique or seemingly comical and write a short piece explaining the phobia, where it stems from, what it causes people to do or avoid and any other information they can find about the phobia. Have the students also include why they picked this phobia.
4) Debate: Split the students into two groups. Have one group argue that phobias are different from sudden fear. Have the other group argue that they cause the same reaction in people.
