How to outline and evaluate psychological research. Suitable for AQA A-level psychology.

How to outline and evaluate psychological research. Suitable for AQA A-level psychology.

An information document with handy mnemonics (APPRC & REVISED) to help students answer an exam question requiring an outline and evaluation of psychological research. These mnemonics are then put into practice, using Milgram's obedience study as an example, to demonstrate how a coherent and detailed 16-marker answer could be formed. I have attached both a word document (easily editable) and a PDF document in case the layout is adjusted due to downloading the document on a different version of Microsoft Office.

AQA A-level Psychology - Endogenous Pacemakers and Exogenous Zeitgebers - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Endogenous Pacemakers and Exogenous Zeitgebers - Biopsychology Topic

As students have already looked at enodegenous pacemakers and exogenous zeitgebers a little during circadian rhythms, I set flipped learning homework for them to read over the notes on this. The lesson therefore focuses on checking and consolidating this learning, correcting any misconceptions, and working on an essay on this topic. An engaging lesson that gets them thinking, not just listening! This lesson works best alongside the Biopsychology Booklet 3, available here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-3-biological-rhythms-11548800

AQA A-level Psychology - Lateralisation (Split-brain) and Methods of Investigation - Biopsychology

AQA A-level Psychology - Lateralisation (Split-brain) and Methods of Investigation - Biopsychology

This lesson introduces the idea of split-brain research by getting students to see how it feels by working in pairs. Students are then shown a video on split-brain research; they work out the results based on what they know about the procedure and different brain areas; and finally they evaluate the research through writing a Nobel prize presentation speech. There are exam questions included throughout the lesson. I have also included the activities I used to consolidate flipped learning of Methods of Investigation, as I didn't have time to teach a full lesson on this - it worked well this way. This lesson (and flipped learning!) works best alongside the Biopsychology Booklet 2, which is available here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-2-the-brain-11561884

AQA A-level Psychology - Plasticity of Brain Function - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Plasticity of Brain Function - Biopsychology Topic

This lesson starts by questioning the theory of localisation (from the previous lesson) by showing a video of a young woman who has made incredible functional recovery following a stroke. Students then read up on the theory of plasticity (in the booklet, or textbooks) and have to compile evidence from this against the theory of localisation. Evaluation and discussion points are teacher-led, with understanding checked through exam-style questions. Three additional consolidation activities are included that I used after this lesson, one of which applies back to the woman who had a stroke from the start of the lesson, so it ties it up nicely. This lesson is best taught alongside the Biopsychology 2 booklet, available here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-2-the-brain-11561884

AQA A-level Psychology - Localisation of Brain Function - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Localisation of Brain Function - Biopsychology Topic

This lesson introduces the debate between localisation and plasticity at the start to stimulate higher level thinking throughout the lesson, focusing on focusing on localisation theory. There are student-led activities as well as some teacher-led learning, with AfL and revisiting of intended learning throughout and a focus on exam-style questions with an essay set for homework. This lesson works best when taught alongside the Biopsychology 2 booklet, found here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-2-the-brain-11561884
