AQA Schizophrenia option

AQA Schizophrenia option

These 6 lessons cover all the topics for the AQA Schizophrenia option, using the Girl with Pink Hair textbook as a reference point. There are a lot of pair, group and individual activities included, with an emphasis on utilising a range of learning styles and interactivity. The tone of the lessons is humorous as I have found that students struggle with this topic so the use of a light-hearted approach and some fun along the way will hopefully enable even the weaker students to access the learning. The worksheet is on Gottesman and Shields' twin study and the evaluation sheet was put together by the students for use with a 16-mark question. Any reference to writing on tables is at the teacher's discretion (my tables wipe clean easily but do test yours first! You can always use sugar paper if you can't write on the tables themselves).

GCSE lessons on Bandura. These lessons introduce the study - its aims, hypothesis, methods and results. There is also an evaluation task that requires students to draw on previous learning. A variety of activities (e.g. word fill, discussion, sorting) and lots of opportunities for progress checking (e.g. true/false, post its). This lesson can be taught as two but condensed down in to one lesson if needed. These can follow on from lessons about Social Learning Theory (see my resources).
