What do teachers say about this resource? (8346)
The author has clearly spent time and effort to match the resource to the specification, providing high quality worksheets that would certainly help AQA Psychology students to succeed in Paper 2... I particularly liked the comparison of approaches section - students typically find this the most challenging area of Approaches but there was a good variety of activities to suit a range of abilities and the most able students would enjoy researching the therapies for the Mastermind activity.

I thought this was a comprehensive and very exam specific resource. The material was covered in excellent depth and in a student friendly format, including offering guidance on essential exam technique. The activities were of a suitable length and offered great variety... This pack is a fantastic extension to the classroom and offers students that chance to enhance their knowledge independently and build on their examination skills. The pack has the right balance of exam specific material and revision... An excellent resource that will be an effective enhancement to the classroom, it will boost student knowledge and also their confidence. – M Hunter, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

The resource covers the syllabus and is detailed. The Mastermind questions are particularly good for above average students. Showing how to plan essay questions (Exercise 15) is very helpful as are instructions on how to write essays. – A Foster, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

As a homework pack this is fantastic! Teachers are able to set for students easily as a homework and answers could be uploaded onto the VLE for students to self-assess… I like the distinctions made between AS/A level specification/contents and a range of activities used to assess students. - R Hubbard, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
This is a thorough and comprehensive set of resources for teachers to use alongside their teaching and would be a valuable assessment resource for all, but especially new and inexperienced teachers or teachers who are not specialised in psychology. I feel that this resource would be an excellent summation task following the classroom teaching of each topic. Many of the questions would prepare the student for the exam questions as well as giving them a variety of sills for applying their knowledge to unseen scenarios, which is essential for the AQA exams… I'd absolutely purchase this resource! This is thorough and would make an excellent resource for both new and experienced teachers. - J Bedson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers say about this resource? (7681)
Great idea - all aspects of the topic are covered and broken down into sections so that teachers can choose which sections to set homework on. The worksheets are also ideal to set as cover work in class or could even be adapted for a timed test. All answers provided to aid non-specialists or NQTs. The language is user-friendly and appropriate for this age group and there is a good use of image to break up the text, as well as diagrams and tables.... A well written, comprehensive resource that could literally save teachers hours of preparation. – V Piper Venn, Tutor and independent reviewer.
This is a good resource for quick and simple revision/consolidation tasks... There are also lots of application questions which enable the students to practice the AO2 element of the exam. – K Elks, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers say about this resource? (6418)
I thought it had excellent coverage of the specification and found a good level of depth for the students... It has some excellent focus on areas that students struggle on, such as fully explaining evaluation and linking AO1 and AO2 material in the scenarios. This resource gives students a chance to build on classroom activities in a logical and comprehensive way.
I love the concept behind this! As a teacher I would love to be able to photocopy these and give them out to my students every week as a resource they can use to help build themselves a revision book! I like that there are links in there the students can explore. I think the idea of it is excellent: the detail is brilliant. I love the variety of studies which are covered, I love the fact that guidance answers & exam terminology are included and explained. I love the idea of this & as a teacher I would definitely buy this as it would make my life so much easier to have homework which I could give which helps consolidate their learning but also sets them up for revision too! - N Espiner, Tutor and Independent Reviewer

I thought this was a really useful resource it could be utilised in many ways by a class teacher. It could be used as a homework tool which provides a DIY revision book for the students if they collated the homework and kept it they can then revise from it! It could be used for peer marking activities! Really good for helping plan essays, reinforcing exam technique & reinforcing content; this is great. - N Espiner, Tutor and Independent Reviewer
The resource is useful and removes the burden of creating tasks. Good depth in some areas so challenges the top students to work beyond their text books - S Quinn, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

This resource is very easy to use and covers all the areas of biopsychology students need. It will also, once complete, be an effective revision guide for the students. This would be an excellent booklet for students to do independent work from at home, allowing them to develop their own skills in this area and as such developing their soft skills. - A Duggan, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
A useful resource which enables students to research elements of the content of the biopsychology section of the specification independently...

Very positive overall - could save lots of work - Good also for private study students.
I though the homework resource was good. It had a range of activities based on research methods, studies, theories and debates. As a homework resource I think it matches the specification well -especially with the emphasis on research methods and interpreting research. - M Ransom, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
