AQA Psychology Schizophrenia - Biological explanations (AO1)

(0)
This is a powerpoint presentation for the biological explanations of schizophrenia, as per the AQA Psychology specification. This takes students through each of the three explanations (the genetic basis, neural correlates and the dopamine hypothesis) and features information from relevant key studies and researchers. It also features a match-up activity as a starter, asking students to recall knowledge from the classification/diagnosis topic.

Social Influence question pack (94 cards) [AQA A Level Psychology]

(0)
A pack of short-form question cards for the Social Influence topic of the AQA A Level Psychology specification. These 94 cards cover both AO1 and AO3 content for the whole of the topic. You can find my other card packs here: Social Influence (94 cards) Biopsychology Year 1 (60 cards) Biopsychology Year 2 (104 cards) Forensic Psychology (152 cards) Schizophrenia (90 cards) (more to come!) Each card measures 6cm by 4cm, so they are small little cards designed for quick fire questions. I have these printed and laminated on coloured paper; often using them for in-class games and students like to use them for revision outside of class, too. You will get access to the pdf file (which is ready to print) and also to the publisher file, to allow you to edit certain cards if you have taught different studies/evaluations or add in any extra points.

AQA A Level Psychology essay template

(0)
These are essay card templates for AQA Psychology. I find this helps students to plan their essays more effectively, getting the balance between AO1 and AO3 correct and developing their PEEL paragraphs. Some also find it useful as a revision resource, planning out essays for each topic in rough from memory.

'Tiger King' - AQA Psychology past paper questions activity

(0)
I created this resource as a way of getting my Y12 students to practise their exam technique. It has a variety of exam questions (mostly Research Methods, but also Psychopathology, Memory, Social Influence and Biopsychology) all applied in the context of the Tiger King documentary on Netflix. They loved it and no previous knowledge of Tiger King required in order to succeed!

Schizophrenia Topic Workpack - AQA Psychology Year 2

(0)
This is a workpack that I use for students alongside my powerpoints to help them through the Schizophrenia topic of the AQA Psychology A Level. There are 31 pages fulfilling each of the specification points, with boxes for students to copy down information for both AO1 and AO3, alongside matchup activities and past paper exam questions. I find this invaluable for helping to structure their notes and understanding how to evaluate. I print one for each of my students at the start of the topic (A3 paper made into an A4 booklet) and find it invaluable as a resource, saving them time and helping them to stay organised and digest content.

Careers in Psychology Display Board icons

Careers in Psychology Display Board icons

(0)
A series of 10 multi-colour icons (A4 size) with details of different career pathways and areas you can go into with a Psychology degree. The different pathways are: Law and Forensics, Advice and Therapy, Computing, Media/Marketing, Sports Psychology, Education, Business/Industry, Management, Healthcare, Research. Each icon has a bit about the different careers, alongside specific job titles and an estimated average salary. These were originally created for our upcoming sixth form open evening as a way of luring in prospective students! It helps to battle with the idea that if you study Psychology you have to become a psychologist - by helpfully displaying the different routes you can go once you have graduated. Great for display boards in classrooms, powerpoint presentations and information booklets.

Issues & Debates Topic Workpack - AQA Psychology Year 2
psych_bitespsych_bites

Issues & Debates Topic Workpack - AQA Psychology Year 2

(0)
This is a workpack I created for the Issues & Debates topic of the A Level AQA Psychology specification. This has 30 pages of content, with space for both AO1 and AO3, in addition to space for links to the key approaches and some practice past paper questions as well. It is formatted for A4 paper but I make it in to a booklet (printed on to A3 paper and stapled in half) so students have a topic per double page. Feedback from students is always positive, they find these really help to structure their learning and keep their notes neat for later revision.
