Hi, can you help me create a story about the brain that includes parts such as the hippocampus and the brainstem?
AP Psychology Brain Story
AP Psychology Mr. Williams Brain and Nervous System Comic Book Project Many younger children are fascinated with the workings of the body and the brain. A major children’s book company has put together a division to handle this area of interest. You have been hired to produce a prototype of a children’s comic book to show to the editors. Your comic book must include: – Heroes and villains – An adventure that takes your reader through a tour of the brain and neuron systems – A neurotransmitter (can either be another character or a reaction, but it must demonstrate your working knowledge of how a neurotransmitter works) – One aspect each of: frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, temporal lobe, the amygdala, hippocampus and hypothalamus – must include a specific structure and function (picture a giant switchboard-where are you?) – Corpus callosum must make an appearance This is a comic book, so besides the factual information (which demonstrates your working knowledge of the brain), it must also include some structural requirements: Must be in comic book form (Title box, multiple action boxes- more than 9, not including the title box) Must be illustrated with color Must have an appropriate title Must have a satisfactory resolution This is not an art project. You are being graded on your knowledge of the brain. Please note – you cannot receive an “A” on this project if you do not include every requirement – factual and structural. DUE DATES AND GRADING FINAL COPY DUE – Tuesday, September 26th, you will be reading your story to the class. The final copy is a major grade. The comic strip itself will count as 80% of the final grade, and the presentation will count as 20% of the final grade **This comic book will usable as notes for the remainder of the class. Yes, you can use it on the rest of the reading checks this semester.** Rubric: Advanced Good Lacking Poor Descriptions of Brain 20 15 10 Visuals of Brain 20 15 10 Story 20 15 10 Creativity 20 15 10 Presentation 20 15 10
