This photocopiable resource pack provides comprehensive coverage to assist teachersin preparing students for the AQA GCSE Psychology course. This specification has been fully revised for first examination in June 2003. It conforms to the requirements of the National Qualifications Framework, including changes to the GCSE Criteria for Social science.Experienced teachers will recognise that the specification is essentially anamalgamation of the previous, and highly successful, AEB and NEAB Specifications.This resource pack, together with the associated textbook should provide teachers withmost of the information required to deliver the specification. Using the pack should provide a clearer idea of the range and depth of the material to be covered in thespecification, enabling teachers to concentrate on adapting the content to suit the particular needs of their students. As it is written in the style of open learning units, italso provides an opportunity to move towards more resource based methods of teaching.This pack is particularly suited to the requirement to provide opportunities for studentsto apply and develop their ICT Key Skills, since the licensing arrangements allow purchasing institutions to make the material available electronically on internalnetworks to students.The specification is made up of four sections:
cognitive, social, developmental, andpro-and anti-social behaviour
, which can be studied in any order. There is a separatemethods unit that deals with coursework and methods and incorporates ethicalguidelines. As the assessment structure for the GCSE is one written paper (80% of totalmarks) comprising short answer or structured questions, with one compulsory questionfor each of the four sections, all of the sections must be studied by students.
Teachersare advised to obtain specimen papers and mark schemes from the AQA, and asthey become available, past papers before planning their course.
