AQA A-level Psychology - Neurons Lesson - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Neurons Lesson - Biopsychology Topic

This is an engaging lesson that introduces the different type of neurons to students through a back-to-back drawing activity, that they generally find very fun/funny/frustrating, it engages all. Further detail is provided through the presentation and then students are given the opportunity to practise what they have learnt through exam-style questions. The crowd-sourcing summary sheet was created and shared for free by @thebadpedagogue - I have included it as an extra, but students could just write six summaries on their paper! Learning is recapped, hooked, built upon, checked, and then reflected upon. Intended learning is revisited throughout to keep students on track. This lesson works best alongside the booklet created for 'Biopsychology 1' (the content required for the AS exam), please find it here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-1-the-nervous-and-endocrine-systems-11561878

AQA A-level Psychology - The Nervous System - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - The Nervous System - Biopsychology Topic

This lesson provides an active start to the Biopsychology topic, starting by recapping the Approaches topic (if you are teaching for the AS exam, this is more relevant as the two topics are examined together). This A-Z document was created and shared for free by @thebadpedagogue - I have included it as an extra, but students can simply write A-Z down the margin of their paper! Students then have their 'baseline' knowledge of the nervous system tested with a true or false activity, before they use evidence to arrange parts of the nervous system into the correct order. Further details is provided via the presentation, before their progress is checked with exam questions and model answers provided to correct any mistakes. A simple plenary to end, compares student's confidence following the baseline activity and what they know now! This lesson is best taught alongside the booklet I made for the topic, found here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-1-the-nervous-and-endocrine-systems-11561878 If you like this lesson, please review this resource - and if you have any tips or requests, don't hesitate to comment.

Kung Fu Panda 'Secrets of he Furious Five' Self-Awareness Worksheets

Kung Fu Panda 'Secrets of he Furious Five' Self-Awareness Worksheets

What are the fundamental qualities that students of Chinese martial arts are expected to cultivate? Patience, Discipline, Courage, Confidence & Compassion! Like the points on a circle, there is no ‘first’ or ‘last’, no ‘more important’ or ‘less important’ when it comes to these powerful human qualities. They are all equally special and can be cultivated simultaneously, every day. Take a hint from Kung Fu Panda (which is of course based on thousands of years of experience and wisdom accumulated by Chinese martial artists and health experts) and develop these admirable and constructive qualities in your daily life! Contents - 2 versions of a ‘self-awareness’ sheet, which may be printed multiple times and filled in, to note how you have shown or will show all five of the qualities in your daily life - 5 ‘self-awareness’ sheets focusing on one quality only - ‘summarise and explain’ sheets for each of the Furious Five characters, to fill in with your own summary of events in the animated film shorts ‘Secrets of the Furious Five’ - labels for each quality which may be cut out and glued to a separate page or notebook, if you would rather make your notes elsewhere (or to use as you see fit) - a full-page poster for each quality, to serve as a friendly reminder
