I find it really useful to use booklets to support my teaching, and my students really appreciate them as well. They all include summarised, yet sufficient content, alongside images and skills tips; as well as extensive exam-style questions, essay planning sheets, key terms and researchers, QR code extended research links, and a progress sheet. I hope you find them useful too!

AQA A-level Psychology - Minority Influence Lesson - Social Influence Topic

(1)
A fun and engaging lesson! Students start by trying to convince the majority (the rest of their table group) to convert to their minority view - chosen from options on the powerpoint slide. Minority Influence as a concept is explained by looking at historical cases such as Rosa Parks and the Suffragettes. Students then go on to do a scavenger hunt to complete a worksheet on the Minority Influence AO1. 'Teacher Talk' takes students through Moscovici's key study. The evaluation is then introduced through a card sort, and assessed through a Finger on the Pulse quiz. The learning objectives are revisited throughout, and each is assessed through students answering exam-style questions, before moving onto the next objective. Interactive plenary - HOT SEAT!

RebeccajanewardRebeccajaneward

AQA A-level Psychology - Social Change Lesson - Social Influence Topic

(1)
This engaging lesson really gets students thinking! To start, they must turn answers into questions (recapping Minority Influence from previous learning). They are then given an A3 worksheet each and must work together to research the definitions for all processes involved in social change (resources provided for this - but the students must access them of their own accord). Students are then put into groups and given a social issue that they must strategise to change - completing the remainder of the A3 worksheet to guide them. The groups each present their strategies to the class, who vote for the strategy most likely to cause change. Finally, 'teacher talk' through the evaluation. The learning objectives are revisited throughout, and each is assessed with an exam-style question before moving on to the next section of the lesson. Supports approximately 3 hours of learning. I hope you find this resource useful, if so, please provide feedback - Thanks!

I have included this on both the powerpoint and a worksheet to save students writing this out. Students then take part in an engaging Yo! Sushi activity (idea borrowed from a premium TES resource I purchased - thank you!) where they choose the topic and style of question that they plan answers to - depending on how they performed in the starter quiz. The worksheet provided for this includes 20 exam-style questions - one on each topic, for each style of question (4, 6, 10, 30). The powerpoint re-visits the learning objectives throughout, and includes a simple reflective plenary.
