Humanism - Maslow's hierarchy of needs

Humanism - Maslow's hierarchy of needs

(1)
This pack includes an A3 printable resource - which are great laminated! Can be used with dry erase pens or the tiles included . The image is a final resource, the tiles can be used as they are in the file, added to or changed as you see fit. The A4 worksheet is great for individual work - to be filled in with either Maslow’s hierarchy for later revision purposes in students notes/files, or used as a task for the student to think about what their own hierarchy would be. This promotes thought about the concept of Humanism. (A powerpoint lesson to accompany this will be up in the next few days and available separately or as part of a pack). This task allows students to think about Maslow’s ideas of what the hierarchy looks like and what their own would look like, and how the impact of simple things such as food and shelter do have an impact on our goals and what we can achieve. When used alongside a scenario as in the powerpoint this can be a powerful tool to promote discussion and deeper thought about the topic of humanism. This download also includes a Humanism handout giving an overview of the approach with evaluation points. The printable section has the tiles which you can add to or remove from, and includes some blank squares which are great to use if students want to add their own ideas in there to. Which can be added as an extension task. You can also add the tiles with the layer names on as an extension and discuss whether these might move if they re-arranged the tiles for themselves. Its a nice task, to look at how Maslow suggests it should look and then getting students to re-arrange it for what they think it might look like for them. *I do not own the copyright to the image of Maslow, this was sourced via creative commons on a search engine.
Idiographic and Nomothetic approaches to Psychological research

Idiographic and Nomothetic approaches to Psychological research

(0)
This encompasses 2-3 lessons with opportunity for some of this to be done as homework, it includes review of methodology (quant vs qual) and what approaches are idiographic and nomothetic including examples. There are extensive writing opportunities which culminate at the end as the elements of a 16 mark essay (AQA). The handout referred to are actually the pages on the topic in the cat/dog books, which i cannot share here as i do not own them. The complete process will walk learners through both approaches, as well as how to evaluate them, it includes an example essay plan, room for them to create their own as well as 2 example 8 mark essays that can be fused together with 2 additional paragraphs to make a 16 mark essay - these 2 essays allow for close consideration and development of understanding of each approach. There are also some examples and match up exercises to test knowledge - and the links to an online website (which i do not own or did not create) is attached which is useful to use for revision. I have also attached at the end some video recommendations for students or teachers to use as part of learning or as consolidation of learning. NOTE THE FONT I USED IN THIS POWERPOINT AND WORKBOOK IS THE HAND, THIS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE ON ALL VERSIONS OF POWERPOINT AND WORD SO YOU MAY NEED TO RESIZE THINGS IF YOU ARE USING A DIFFERENT FONT. NOTE THE GAPS IN THE WORKBOOK THAT REFER TO A HANDOUT ARE IN REFERENCE TO USING TEXTBOOKS - THE ONE USED PRIMARILY FOR THIS IS THE CAT DOG BOOK DOUBLE SPREADS.

Forensic Psychology - Lesson 1 Defining Crime (Full lesson including homework and posters)

(0)
This is a complete opening lesson for FORENSIC psychology. The pack includes: Powerpoint Lesson plan Printable - Case study sheet 1 per group/table Homework sheet 2 x posters in A3 - word and PDF file options (as per thumbnail for resource 2 x posters in A3 - word and PDF file options (same as above but with descriptions for each issue) This lesson focuses on defining crime and the four main issues, it includes group work and class discussion and focuses on issue with an activity for each, and checks for learning throughout - it leads to homework which touches on future content, provokes thought and involves use of data handling (numerical). This is a comprehensive resource bundle to engage and stimulate students and provide an opening to the topic. It uses examples from current culture and encourages use of group work, class discussion and use of mobile devices as well as engaging activities. This lesson contains images that were available in the public domain, any articles used are referenced with a link on the page to the original materials. This lesson is entirely my own creation and more lessons in this range will be uploaded soon. There will be a bundle of the entire topic should anyone be interested once all lessons are uploaded.
Evaluation ladders (essays)

Evaluation ladders (essays)

(0)
This is a template for an evaluation ladder. Each ladder has a point which you can fill in or for stretch and challenge have students complete. They then have room for evidence and explain. Ideally they should be able to fit this into this as an exam paragraph shouldn’t really be longer than what can be fitted here (dependent on handwriting size of course). You can also print this out as A3 as a table exercise, and rotate it so one group writes a point then the next has to evidence. This leaves more room for students to work and collaborate. Good tool to use to ensure that students are writing complete paragraphs and understanding a point is not worth a point unless you evidence and explain it. As for linking, this is lightly greyed out and has a smaller area, this is more high level student as not all students can manage to do this, I always advise as long as you PEE then you are good, but the option is there. There is a topic, student name and mark box so you can do some peer marking or have it as a homework exercise, though its also a good revision tool in upcoming revision sessions - exams are looming ever closer!
AQA Psychology RM - reliability and validity

AQA Psychology RM - reliability and validity

(0)
This resource is a lesson to consolidate learning on validity and reliability with some hands on activities to get students actively thinking and putting in to practice valid and reliable measuring tools and considering their usefulness. This resource includes a powerpoint, handout with space for students to write notes on the activities and the activity workbook student and teacher version. All you need is scissors and rulers, possibly glue and some spare plain paper. Students seem to really enjoy and get engaged in this lesson and it really seems to help them work out the difference between the two concepts. There are two of the student workbook files, one labelled student file, another that is the teacher version, the only difference is that the photos for Lombroso for validity analysis have an additional page with the answers on should you not know who the people in the photographs are - . the only one not a criminal is 14, who is an actor from the Hills have eyes, the others are all criminals but some may not fit Lombrosos atavistic form theory which is where the discussion about validity gets really interesting.

Attachment dominoes

(0)
These dominoes cover Attachment - caregiver-infant interactions and the stages of attachment, including research by Meltzoff and Moore and Schaffer and Emerson and are a nice alternative to flashcards that make recall more interactive and done in pairs rather than alone. 2 pages of dominoes which can be printed and laminated for long term use and can be edited for use with other topics.
Ainsworths rooms!

Ainsworths rooms!

(0)
This A3 printable is great to laminate or just use as is. This task can be used in groups, pairs or as individuals and aims to get students to draw a representation of each of the stages of Ainsworths study, i.e mother, baby and stranger in one box, in another just stranger and baby. They can include words about emotions or add descriptions, but this gives the students license for their own artistic expression and is useful for more visual learners. This could also be used in A4 format to add to students files as a quick revision tool for the different conditions within the strange situation.

How to break down and understand what exam questions are asking!

(0)
This resource is inspired by an article in Psychological Review, in which I have taken the premise, summarised and provided examples and then given 3 questions to use as worked examples for the student to put the learning into practice. On the rear are the command terms used by Ofqual and AQA which helps the student understand the words they can expect to see and what each of those words means in terms of their requirement in correctly and successfully answering a question.
Psych out game full AQA specification

Psych out game full AQA specification

(0)
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!

STARTER - BEDLAM ESCAPE ROOM

STARTER - BEDLAM ESCAPE ROOM

(0)
This resource is the start of a 60 minute escape room (still in development) but is ideal as a starter, 15-20 minutes (approximately - dependent on size of group). The basis is that there are a number of documents that require a group to share out and read to answer the crossword puzzle questions - some are easy, some are more challenging, but all the answers are in the printable materials. This encourages group interaction and discussion and is an ideal ice breaker. This pack contains printables that constitute a complete escape room experience which is an ideal ice-breaker and fosters positive team building interaction while also being somewhat educational and fun. Case files included are blank and completed (fictional) and can be used as inspiration to write your own. The photographs on the case files are not my property these are actual photographs of patients from Bedlam available online. A great resource for your further reading is in the links below. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7296751/Faces-patients-notorious-Bedlam-Asylum.html https://museumofthemind.org.uk/ A qr code for the Bethlem official museum is on the newspaper printable, a nice touch for anyone wanting to learn more. The newspaper file is A4 but needs printing as A3 for best results. The asylum photo files is an optional extra to add decor to your room - i printed these out and laminated for future use and used these on the walls. This pack contains the crossword puzzle answer sheet - i wrote the answer in invisible ink in the admin only box on the quiz sheet and used a torch to reveal the answer - this was fun but made having someone else run the quiz for you easier if you were using this on a larger group.

EDEXCEL - Key question LEARNING THEORIES - FLYING

(0)
This lesson is for the key question for learning theories, comprising of a brief powerpoint that highlights some of the materials to use for AO1 and AO2. Includes 2 sets of flashcard files - a mini version and a larger version - i have 7 printed, laminated and attached with a ring which students use in class, but they can have a set of their own which would be useful for revision and is a good introduction on how to make flashcards work. This essay culminates in writing the essay. Lesson includes a link to a quizlet of the flashcards with an option to test - as this is coming up on the 2022 exams this could prove useful.
Dyslexia alphabet mat

Dyslexia alphabet mat

(0)
This double sided placemat was designed for a student in my creative writing and english literature classes that has dyslexia, she has an alphabet in front of her on paper to help her form the words she wants to write and I designed and made this and laminated it so she could put it in her file and have it for every lesson instead of the scrap of paper she kept losing. This was a great success for her and formed part of my QTLS entry.
