BTEC Command word differences and meanings

BTEC Command word differences and meanings

I designed this activity for Level 2 BTEC learners, getting them use to the command words found in their assignments. Links with embedding English as they will use a dictionary to search for the definitions of each word. The tasks can support the learners understanding of each command word and put them into practice. Can be adapted for any Level and extra assignment tips can be added.

AQA Psychology issues and debates work booklet

AQA Psychology issues and debates work booklet

Work booklet given to Y12 student to complete over the summer holidays. Students had some knowledge of the issues and debates content but had not covered it in any great depth. This booklet therefore contains enough detail for them to have a good understanding of the content but also leaves enough gaps for the students to use their existing knowledge and additional research skills to complete. Knowledge review questions are included at the end of every sub topic. As always, I recommend students use the Tutor2u and Simply Psychology sites as a point of reference. Levels of explanation picture credit to Tutor2U Psychology.
