AQA A-Level Sociology - Religious Organisations - Beliefs in Society Topic

AQA A-Level Sociology - Religious Organisations - Beliefs in Society Topic

This is a very simple idea for a lesson, so I have also included examples of the presentations produced (with permission from my students). I have taught religious organisations in three different ways (teacher-led, student-presentations, and market-place) and have found this to be the most engaging and memorable. Powerpoint includes a follow-up lesson focusing on applying this learning to 10-mark exam questions using the PERCY structure. Students are introduced to an overview / background of the different religious organisations, before groups / individuals are given one religious organisation to research and create a presentation on, with specific criteria included in the lesson. Teaching this straight after defining religion gives a really good point of interest to refer back to when learning about the rest of the topics in the module - and keeps them engaged in weird and wonderful religious organisations from the start of Beliefs in Society. Unfortunately, the student powerpoint on Fundamentalism was corrupted so I haven't been able to include this. An important distinction is made between the traditional typologies (churches, denominations, and sects), the slightly later cults, and then NAMs and fundamentalism, when introducing the lesson - as I think it is important that the newer organisations are introduced at the same time, to cause less confusion with where these 'fit'. I have found this to work really well, although it doesn't follow the pattern of any textbook. This lesson is best delivered with the accompanying booklet as I have simplified and explained all information clearly, to be included in the presentations taught to the class.

AQA A-level Psychology - Neurons Lesson - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Neurons Lesson - Biopsychology Topic

This is an engaging lesson that introduces the different type of neurons to students through a back-to-back drawing activity, that they generally find very fun/funny/frustrating, it engages all. Further detail is provided through the presentation and then students are given the opportunity to practise what they have learnt through exam-style questions. The crowd-sourcing summary sheet was created and shared for free by @thebadpedagogue - I have included it as an extra, but students could just write six summaries on their paper! Learning is recapped, hooked, built upon, checked, and then reflected upon. Intended learning is revisited throughout to keep students on track. This lesson works best alongside the booklet created for 'Biopsychology 1' (the content required for the AS exam), please find it here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-1-the-nervous-and-endocrine-systems-11561878

AQA A-level Psychology - The Nervous System - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - The Nervous System - Biopsychology Topic

This lesson provides an active start to the Biopsychology topic, starting by recapping the Approaches topic (if you are teaching for the AS exam, this is more relevant as the two topics are examined together). This A-Z document was created and shared for free by @thebadpedagogue - I have included it as an extra, but students can simply write A-Z down the margin of their paper! Students then have their 'baseline' knowledge of the nervous system tested with a true or false activity, before they use evidence to arrange parts of the nervous system into the correct order. Further details is provided via the presentation, before their progress is checked with exam questions and model answers provided to correct any mistakes. A simple plenary to end, compares student's confidence following the baseline activity and what they know now! This lesson is best taught alongside the booklet I made for the topic, found here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-1-the-nervous-and-endocrine-systems-11561878 If you like this lesson, please review this resource - and if you have any tips or requests, don't hesitate to comment.

AQA A-level Psychology - Lateralisation (Split-brain) and Methods of Investigation - Biopsychology

AQA A-level Psychology - Lateralisation (Split-brain) and Methods of Investigation - Biopsychology

This lesson introduces the idea of split-brain research by getting students to see how it feels by working in pairs. Students are then shown a video on split-brain research; they work out the results based on what they know about the procedure and different brain areas; and finally they evaluate the research through writing a Nobel prize presentation speech. There are exam questions included throughout the lesson. I have also included the activities I used to consolidate flipped learning of Methods of Investigation, as I didn't have time to teach a full lesson on this - it worked well this way. This lesson (and flipped learning!) works best alongside the Biopsychology Booklet 2, which is available here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-2-the-brain-11561884

AQA A-level Psychology - Endogenous Pacemakers and Exogenous Zeitgebers - Biopsychology Topic

AQA A-level Psychology - Endogenous Pacemakers and Exogenous Zeitgebers - Biopsychology Topic

As students have already looked at enodegenous pacemakers and exogenous zeitgebers a little during circadian rhythms, I set flipped learning homework for them to read over the notes on this. The lesson therefore focuses on checking and consolidating this learning, correcting any misconceptions, and working on an essay on this topic. An engaging lesson that gets them thinking, not just listening! This lesson works best alongside the Biopsychology Booklet 3, available here - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-psychology-biopsychology-booklet-3-biological-rhythms-11548800
