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.

Gender Development: Role of hormones table

Students reduce and summarise information describing the role of hormones in sex and gender development and evaluate it using research evidence. Designed to be used with the Hodder ‘AQA Psychology Book 2’ (Lawton and Willard), but would also work with other texts. This activity could be used when introducing the topic, or done from memory as a revision activity to test understanding. A filled in version is provided, which could also be adapted, e.g. with gaps to fill in for less able students.

NEW SPEC AQA GCSE PSYCH - Development - Early brain development

NEW SPEC AQA GCSE PSYCH - Development - Early brain development

Introductory lessons in the development unit developing student knowledge of early brain development. Students are engaged through wholly student led tasks developing their knowledge of key terms, key brain areas and the influence of nature vs nurture. Experience teaching these lessons (2x50 minutes) highlighted the fact that it is meant to challenge the most able through the use of extended reading and newspaper articles but can be easily differentiated down with weaker students only completing some of the nature/nurture tasks. The thinking and discussion questions can be used as plenary/starter to assess progress between lesson 1 and 2.
