AQA A-level Psychology - Evaluating the Approaches

AQA A-level Psychology - Evaluating the Approaches

I'd love your feedback - what you think of this resource, any suggestions you may have, or requests for future uploads.This lesson is very flexible, and different elements can be used depending on its relevance to you.Because I begin year 12 psychology with a few weeks of introducing the approaches (description only), I 'top-this-up' with evaluation later in the year (when students have developed these skills). Therefore this lesson covers all approaches together - recapping them (through a Tell Me More activity), before covering key terms such as determinism, and finally setting an independent task where students prioritise their own learning (through a YO! SUSHI menu).Tell Me More and YO! SUSHI activities cover:- The behaviourist approach- Social Learning Theory- The cognitive approach- The biological approach - The psychodynamic approach- The humanistic approach

Theresa May calls a Snap Election - the FULL speech - so many lesson possibilities

Theresa May calls a Snap Election - the FULL speech - so many lesson possibilities

This is a fabulous resource that can be used for so many different engaging lessons. This is Theresa May's full speech on calling a general election on 8th June. The speech is fascinating. Ask your pupils to work out which key words are repeated the most, how Theresa May refers to herself and the opposing parties or work out why an election is being called. It could also be used to pick apart May's use of grammar and vocabulary.

GCSE and A Level Psychology - Comic strip revision of key studies activity

GCSE and A Level Psychology - Comic strip revision of key studies activity

Fantastic for low ability/visual learners or just for a quick to prepare (but effective!) revision lesson - print a copy of the worksheet for each student and explain the task using the PowerPoint; students must pick a key study (or use one that you allocate) and create a summary comic strip covering aim, procedure, findings and conclusions. Collect in, photocopy and re-distribute the sheets as full revision packs...teamwork that works!
