AQA GCSE Psychology (NEW SPEC) - Perception exam style questions (factors, illusions and key studies

AQA GCSE Psychology (NEW SPEC) - Perception exam style questions (factors, illusions and key studies

Resource includes exam style questions ranging from 1 mark 'identify' questions to 9 mark 'describe and evaluate' essays including associated mark schemes. Please note these mark schemes are not generated by AQA but were produced by myself as a result of hours of research looking at specimen papers and mark schemes relating to the new specification. This has involved my interpretation of mark schemes for questions that do not appear on the specimen paper on their website.

AQA GCSE New Spec Psychology Perception - Theories of perception revision lesson

AQA GCSE New Spec Psychology Perception - Theories of perception revision lesson

The lesson covers theories of perception from a revision perspective. Whiteboards are used to initially check student understanding of the theories before they are given a learning mat with all the information they need to answer an essay question on each theory. Students work their way around the room, questioning each other on the information on the learning mat before choosing from a set of differentiated activities ranging from mild to extra hot with the main aim of answering, in some capacity the essay "Outline and evaluate Gregory's constructivist theory of perception".
