Working Memory Model (OUTLINE)

Working Memory Model (OUTLINE)

A lesson in which students will learn to outline the working memory model and also apply their knowledge of the model. The lesson requires students to summarise the WMM with a framework to structure their notes. The powerpoint includes an application style question for students to apply their knowledge of WMM. Finally there is a question and answer loop to review WMM which might be used as a handout or the questions/answers displayed around the classroom as a kind of 'treasure hunt' activity.

Study Board

Study Board

This resource can be used to consolidate students' knowledge of a piece of research. The Study Board comprises several elements including: Researcher(s)' name, aim, procedure, method, results, conclusion, IV, DV, ethical issues, methodological issues & strengths. My students complete one for each major study and then take a picture of them to keep for revision purposes. The products is designed to be printed on A3 paper and laminated so students can re-use the same board again and again, thus saving you money in the long-term on printing. Alternatively, you can print a paper copy for each major study for students to keep. Once you have purchased the product, email me with proof of purchase and I will email you/share the actual Study Board. Unfortunately, this is the only way I can sell the resource as if I upload it, people are able to simply screen shot the image of the resource and not pay for the item. My email is eproudlock@dykehouse.hartlepool.sch.uk

Breaking it down - essay questions

Breaking it down - essay questions

A nice simple worksheet to use to help students focus on what a question is actually asking them. A colourful way to organise and break down knowledge in order to understand what is needed to answer a question. This is a great AFL tool as students can fill them in for exam questions and hand them in, this can help identify where the student needs to make improvements and can help them in better planning for answering exam questions.

Tackling questions about studies

Tackling questions about studies

This resource enables students to be able to separate the study from the psychology. The worksheet has space to write out everything they know about the study and then below how that relates to the psychology from the question. Sometimes students find it hard to think about what the study entailed and the psychology of it, and then to use that knowledge to answer a question - this enables students to practice pulling apart studies in relation to specific questions. This download has 3 files - 1 is an instructional example file, the second is a worksheet with question and conclusion fields and the third is a simple sheet with no question or conclusion fields, useful for practice - such as writing information about studies across the top and then writing what psychology it relates to at the bottom, such as arguments it supports, approaches it belongs to etc.

Psych out game full AQA specification

Psych out game full AQA specification

This take on a very famous board game encourages students to not ask about appearance but more in-depth information to guess who their opponent has. This is a nice end of year task that makes revision fun and gets students thinking about what to ask and how. Great to print and laminate and easy to store and carry. All you need is a board for each player to use (dry erase markers if you are laminating them) and then another board printed out and cut out to make the cards that players choose their psychological figure from. A lot of fun!
