For Y12 and Y13 psychology students. A step by step worksheet on conducting the sign test within research methods. Use in combination with the powerpoint to guide students on the criteria needed to conduct the sign test, calculating the sign value and writing whether the results are significant enough. Also includes practice questions to apply knowledge at the end (approx 1h 30 worth of material). Excellent for non-specialists.
This bundle combines both experimental and non-experimental research methods (which I planned and taught in that order). There are a range of lessons each with their own popwerpoint and worksheets. Tracker is included for students to stick in at the start and then write a comment after each lesson with a red, amber green traffic light colour. I also get my students to learn 5 essential spellings which they have to define when we come to the word or as homework (literacy sheet included) I made these before the new spec book was published so all content is type or on worksheets with answers provided- so is ideal for non-specialists. Opportunities for practicals and self/peer assessment has been included. Approx one full terms worth (3x lessons a week). Price reflects time and effort that went into planning and making all of these resources.
4 lessons going through the four topic areas of social influence (conformity, obedience, crowd and collective behaviour, bystander intervention). Lessons can be extended by completing the activities eg, writing a report on the Murder of Kitty Genovese and applying social and dispositional factors to Suffragette Approx 10-12 lessons (60 min).
This bundle includes lessons that cover all content of the social influence section (prosocial, obedience, conformity and crowd and collective behaviour). A lot of content is typed either on ppt or worksheets because of a lack of textbooks with 3yr GCSE. Lessons include starter activities, assessment opportunities and video clips. My students loved this unit and enjoyed watching suffragette at the end and applying their knowledge to social change (link to film included in notes on ppt). Ideal for non-specialists and specialists, a range of activities and worksheets ready made. Ive also included the word docs used to make and display the students newspaper articles. Approx 15h worth of lesson material.
The lesson goes through the social and dispositional factors in relation to crowd and collective behaviour. Desgined for high ability Y9 GCSE psychology students following the AQA new specification.

Approx - 90 min worth of lesson.

This is the first unit I taught for the new GCSE psychology AQA specification. I did verbally weave research methods content in (moved onto research methods as next unit). Includes tracker and assessment (I made my own questions). I planned this unit without a textbook - instead watering down A-level content. Unit ends Ends with Disney's Inside Out which was a nice way to end the lessons at Christmas.

Lesson for AS psychology students on standard deviation. Includes mini-plenaries and students rate themselves to direct whether they complete past exam question (AQA A Spec) or watch consolidation video.
I split the spec into the different units and made a checklist for students use. They can either tick as they move through the course or use it at the end of AS to help inform their revision or if they have missed lessons. Also useful to help inform teacher planning.
