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.

Logical Fallacies and Cognitive Biases Display Pack (Philosophy/Psychology)

This display pack is designed to engage students in reflecting on their thinking and argument. The pack includes two displays: Logical fallacies covering a range of 21 examples of irrationality including: Strawman, slippery slope, ad hominum, black or white, appeal to authority, bandwagon, middle ground, begging the question, non-representative sample, moral equivalency, non sequitur, red herring, splitting hairs, non-testable hypothesis, anecdotal support, genetic, post hoc ergo propter hoc, appeal to tradition, appeal to emotion, affirming the consequent and denying the antecedent. Cognitive biases covering a range of 18 reasons why we all fail to be objective including: Anchoring, confirmation bias, declinism, framing, fundamental attribution error, the halo effect, backfire effect, reactance, groupthink, belief bias, availability heuristic, clustering illusion, conservatism bias, blind spot bias, the ostrich effect, zero risk, in-group bias and the Dunning-Kruger effect. All of the displays are styled in a high contrast white on black or black on white (apart from the red herring of course…) They are eye-catching and informative for your students of all ages from Year 7 through to Year 13. Great for an RE, Philosophy or Psychology classroom. Maybe these should be in every classroom - just think about the world we could create!

OCR Psychology 9-1 GCSE Revision Activity Booklet

OCR Psychology 9-1 GCSE Revision Activity Booklet

I have created a revision booklet for Paper 1 OCR GCSE Psychology 9-1 (new spec). This has a variety of activities to help students revise the content for: Criminal Psychology Development Psychological Problems There is no research methods in this booklet. I have decided against putting it in this booklet as I feel it would be best as a stand alone booklet due to the fact it is in both papers. There are many research methods booklets available and little changes in research methods so people will want to use their own. Also, I have NOT included the studies in here. The reason is that I have a separate studies booklet that I get my students to fill in across the 2 years for homework. I have included this for you to use (if you wish). This is a page for each study for students to fill in. There are a variety of crosswords, word searches, gap fills, cryptograms, double puzzles and others. The criticisms involve note taking. There is also a front cover, you may wish to do your own, hence why it is at the end. A side note: I am a teacher (not a full time author, or part time for that matter), just like you! It has taken me roughly 20 hours to make this booklet, if you are expecting a bound revision booklet then please look elsewhere. This is mainly to help students revisit content alongside the Billingham book. Equally you are paying to be able to print as many copies of this for your own students as you like. Please do not reupload! Many thanks! If you have any questions please feel free to message me. I will eventually produce a booklet for Paper 2.

Working Memory Model Bundle

Working Memory Model Bundle

Here is a bundle with my Working Memory Model resources from the Social Influence part of Psychology, I am bundling some of the topic resources e.g conformity, obedience etc because I understand some people may only want a certain part of a unit. I also am including the how to answer questions booklet as it is a great resource and always helps students with exam technique so this is added to all of the individual topic bundles I am uploading.
