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.
