GCSE Psychology new spec AQA Research Methods

15 Resources
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.
