AQA GCSE New Spec social influence

AQA GCSE New Spec social influence

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.

GCSE Psychology new spec AQA Research Methods

GCSE Psychology new spec AQA Research Methods

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.
