NEW SPEC AQA GCSE PSYCH - Development - Early brain development
lornaslasorlornaslasor

NEW SPEC AQA GCSE PSYCH - Development - Early brain development

(0)
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.

AQA Psychology issues and debates work booklet
lornaslasorlornaslasor

AQA Psychology issues and debates work booklet

(2)
Work booklet given to students to complete independently. Makes an excellent summer project or revision resource. Students had some knowledge of the issues and debates content but had not covered it in any great depth. This booklet therefore contains enough detail for them to have a good understanding of the content but also leaves enough gaps for the students to use their existing knowledge and additional research skills to complete. Knowledge review questions are included at the end of every sub topic. As always, I recommend students use the Tutor2u and Simply Psychology sites as a point of reference. Levels of explanation picture credit to Tutor2U Psychology.
