1 hij Teacher Resource Bank GCE Psychology A AS and A2 Resources List The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA) is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (company number ) and a registered charity (registered charity number ). Registered address: AQA, Devas Street, Manchester M15 6EX. Dr Michael Cresswell, Director General.

2 RESOURCES LIST AS and A2 Web-based materials Note to teachers and parents The presence of a website on this list does not mean that it is endorsed by AQA or that it is appropriate for students to access it. Some sites contain advertisements, or may not be accessible through school networks. Content is changing all the time and it is the teacher s responsibility to assess a site s suitability if recommending it to students. Some material on websites may have copyright issues affecting how it may be used. Note to students Some of these sites may not exactly match the new specification, but may still have relevant information and/or links. Many of these sites will have links to other websites, topics, worksheets, podcasts, etc, some of which will be referenced below in the specification topic areas. Whilst some of these links will be directly relevant to students who could utilise the material immediately, others are more for teachers as background information: for example, research study articles which might be rather daunting for the novice psychology student. However, one or two could be a useful introduction for how research studies are presented and link to PSYA4, which is concerned about the presentation of scientific reports. Hint Some websites require registration to gain full access to resources. If you are loath to use your usual (for example, to avoid unsolicited spam), you can create a new address specifically for this type of activity, using Hotmail or Googl , for example. Websites providing links with or covering several areas of the specification Google search engine (and search engines in general) A general search of a topic or psychologist can yield fruitful results. If you are looking for a PowerPoint presentation which you could adapt or use, try searching for the topic (eg models of memory ) followed by the file extension for PowerPoint (ie.ppt ). Using the same technique for other file extensions is also useful: eg for audio, try.mp3 ; for video, try.mpeg or.mpg ; for still images, try.jpeg etc. This is useful for carrying out more academic searches and will often bring up links to abstracts about research in the area being searched for. ClickPsych.com Useful links for A level Psychology, eg general psychology, evolutionary psychology, PGCE in psychology, physiological psychology, etc. klm 1

3 College Open Learning Exchange Group (COLEG) Produces a range of learning material, but limited access unless teaching within the listed Scottish institutions it is linked with. Higher Education Academy Psychology Network The website states We have mapped the resources included in our resources database on to the syllabi for A and AS level psychology. You can browse the resources following the syllabus of each of the four exam boards: AQA A, AQA B, OCR and EDEXCEL. We also provide a list of general resources about psychology and about the teaching of psychology that are relevant for A and AS level students and teachers. Holah.co.uk Mainly aimed at OCR Psychology, but contains some useful resources. Internet Archive According to the site: The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of internet sites and other cultural artefacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars and the general public. This link takes you to a one-hour program Open Mind 1974 with a debate about the Limits of Human Freedom. B F Skinner, Charles Frankel and Eugene Kennedy discuss this. Black and white. NGfL CYMRU Teaching resources aimed at the WJEC specification, but again some material may be worth investigating for ideas. Open2.net Open2.net is the online learning portal from The Open University and the BBC. A range of resources appear here linked to BBC programmes such as Child of our Time, and some materials are linked to the BPS and include excerpts from OU learning materials, activities, etc. Many activities relate to AS specification as well. Psychlotron Teaching Resource Bank A brilliant site covering all specifications. It is a free resource-sharing site aimed at teachers and lecturers - so contribute! It contains PowerPoint presentations with accompanying worksheets, podcasts, study skills/revision activities (eg memory bingo, an evaluation wheel), to name but a few. All is organised into topics and each item linked to relevant specification(s). Worth its weight in gold! PsyOnline Initially started as a partnership of schools in the northwest, it is now managed/organised more by Edge Hill University. It has a Student Room which contains a large section of links and information linking to the specification. Links are rated on a scale of There is also a teachers area (resources to download, facilities to upload your resources for others to share, and a staffroom). 2 klm

4 SALMON Materials Many links below relate to this website homepage (SALMON materials): the award winning Study And Learning Materials ON line website which contains material to support students studying evolutionary psychology, the biological bases of behaviour and psychobiology. It is aimed at undergraduates, but it does have lots of pictures, some video links, graphs of studies and summaries of studies. Could be quite useful as a basis for independent study with an accompanying worksheet, or for the more able student who wants to dig into things a bit more deeply or the student who is really interested in a particular topic. Scottish Further Education Unit Links to other sites: Psychology Higher and Intermediate support packs for teachers, eg brief overview of some textbooks, background information topics, activities to use in class, etc. S-Cool a UK revision website ( material totally FREE ) This link takes you directly to the psychology part of this website. It is one that many students are likely to be familiar with from their GCSE exams. There is a teachers area and discussion groups that can be signed up to. SimplyPsych.com Mainly aimed at the OCR specification. There is sample material to view but it is a subscription site for teachers and students. Subscriptions can be individual or site licences can be obtained. It is a registered Curriculum OnLine Content Provider, meaning that school elcs can be used here. Simply Psychology Sam McLeod s A-Level Psychology Website Aimed at AQA Psychology Specification B, but much will be useful for Specification A as well, eg the section on research methods. Social-Science.co.uk A site maintained by a teacher/lecturer of the Social Sciences aiming to provide online safe resources for students and teachers. Materials mainly relate to OCR A level Psychology, and OU DD100 (An Introduction to the Social Sciences). Browsing the site led to a little stats calculator and some material for experiments. Textbook Site for Psychology (6 th edition) by Bernstein, Penner, Clarke-Stewart, and Roy Interactive media tutorials on a range of topics covered in the text but general enough to be used without it, eg correlations, classical conditioning, anxiety, schizophrenia, aggression etc. Some useful scenarios to increase critical thinking skills and flashcard activities (see menu on left of web page). Suitable for student use. klm 3

5 The PsiCafe This site aims to provide links to good quality websites about psychology. It aims to operate as a gateway. It was developed for academics, eg students, teachers, etc. Could be a useful starting point for students doing some independent research. The Psych Files The Psych Files is for anyone who is taking or teaching a class in psychology and is interested in the science of psychology presented in an informal and fun way. Covers a range of topics and has an American feel about it. Contains mp3 podcast, short video clips, etc. VideoJug Launched September 2006, this website is the world s most comprehensive library of free factual video content online. Has Ask the expert sections and How to tutorials. It is continually being updated as people upload material.

6 Organisations The British Psychological Society (BPS) The British Psychological Society is the scientific society and professional body for psychologists in the UK, incorporated by Royal Charter. At present, anyone can call themselves a psychologist, but since 1987 the Society has established and maintained a Register of Chartered Psychologists, which has stringent entrance requirements. It also maintains a professional Code of Conduct for all its members. Only those members on the Register of Chartered Psychologists are permitted to use the term Chartered Psychologist. The Society has nine Divisions catering for professional specialisms, including teachers and researchers in psychology. In order to gain full membership of a Division, the appropriate accredited training is usually required. On the formation of the Division for Teachers and Researchers in Psychology in 1998, a route to Registration as a Chartered Psychologist was established for teachers of psychology. Full membership of the Division on the basis of teaching psychology will be granted on the fulfilment of various criteria, including evidence of professional contributions, such as experience as an external examiner; experience as a trainer/supervisor of teachers; published teaching material; and teaching experience. Please visit the web site for further information. Of further relevance to psychology teachers/students are the following BPS links: Research Digest You can subscribe to receive this fortnightly by (free of charge) and each brief article is linked to the relevant A level specifications. This is definitely worth subscribing to and encouraging students to do so as well. The web page has a wealth of other links and information, eg podcasts, etc. Student Membership Students studying A level psychology can become student members of the BPS for about 20 per year if they are not paying income tax. A school stamp is needed on the application form. Careers Advice Site provides some posters, etc: material here could be adapted for open evenings or similar. Division for Teachers of Psychology The web page for teachers and researchers in psychology. Ethics and Code of Conduct klm 5

7 The Association for the Teaching of Psychology The Association for the Teaching of Psychology (ATP) is a voluntary body run by psychology teachers for psychology teachers. It has an annually elected committee and provides a variety of services for members including a telephone helpline, help via , ethics advice for practicals and coursework, a magazine, journals and economically priced one-day and weekend courses for teachers new to psychology. It also has an annual conference in July, each year at a different university. There are lecturers, workshops and seminars, meetings with the examiners and opportunities to put queries to them, and chances to make useful contacts. Reasonable annual subscription. Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Division 2 of the American Psychological Society) Contains some teaching resources in various formats (.rtf,.pdf and Intern resources) in a range of topic areas, eg classroom tips, ethical issues, introductory psychology. The Times Education Supplement This is the TES Staffroom link for the social sciences. As well as having hints and tips about problem areas in teaching psychology, it is a great site for teachers on their own in schools, particularly if you have had one of those days. Someone else has usually had one recently as well! The site is usually very helpful and if you have a query, a reply is posted pretty quickly. You need to register on the site to post and reply to messages. This is the resources area for psychology on the TES web site. Again, registration is required to download these free resources. Institute of Educational Assessors The Institute of Educational Assessors is a professional body dedicated to supporting the needs of everyone involved in educational assessment. Members include everyone involved in assessment, from senior examiners, moderators and markers to individuals with an interest in or responsibility for assessment in schools, colleges and other educational organisations. National Assessment Agency The site to visit to apply to become an examiner. Excellent for adding to CPD and for honing what you need to deliver in terms of knowledge and skills to improve students performance, etc. The American Psychological Association There is an online APA journal the APA Monitor published every month, helps with upto-date information. APA also runs Psychport, a help-centre for psychological questions and a jumping-off place to other resources. 6 klm

8 Video/Film Resources Google Video/You Tube Searches on topics and psychologists in the specification can often yield some good 4-5 minute clips eg Milgram s obedience study, Zimbardo s Prison Study, Ainsworth s Strange Situation, people with mental health problems talking about the experience of being schizophrenic, having OCD, etc. It is suggested that these are always viewed in their entirety before actually recommending them to students to watch. It is unlikely that such sites will be accessible in schools, as most establishments have bans on them. There are ways to rip such clips and adjust file extensions, etc, to give a hard copy, but you are likely to be infringing copyright. Houston Community College Southwest Contains links to a range of short clips (3-5 minutes) on a range of psychological topics. Some are clips from videos/dvds that can be purchased. Annenberg Learning Organisation This is an excellent site covering a range of subjects. It has the whole of Zimbardo s updated Discovering Psychology : the World of Abnormal Psychology, The Brain: Teaching Modules, The Mind: Teaching Modules, Seasons of Life, Growing Old in a New Age, Looking at Learning, Death: A Personal Understanding, The Whole Child: A Caregiver s Guide to the First Five Years. They are free to view but require registration (free) with the site to view it. There may be problems attempting to show such videos in schools due to competing with other users for bandwidth, which may mean poor quality or freezing of the programme. School/College Web Sites The links below take you to various school/college psychology web pages. Some contain useful outlines for year plans and schemes of work handy if you are new to teaching and concerned about how long to spend on various topics. They may contain links to other sites as well as work sheets. They may also be useful for seeing the variety of ways that schools are developing such initiatives. Harris CTC Psychology Robert Smyth School Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College Sutton College klm 7

9 Book Publishers Sites These can sometimes provide additional tools/worksheets/activities to go with various textbooks that they produce which could be adapted to the classroom. Some have sample chapters on a range of topics. Some require registration and a fee to access all facilities but may be worth considering if you are using the textbook in class. Nelson Thornes AQA endorsed materials Worth Publishers Media Room The above two links may be worth checking out. Contains material associated with various psychology textbooks, etc. Palgrave PsyPress This is a summary of chapters with links to a textbook, but contains a range of student support activities that do not need the book. Hartshill Press Resource packs include handout material, suggestions for class and individual activities, short answer and essay questions, and suggestions for practical work and further reading. The entire contents of the packs are available in Word format. The content can be modified to suit individual purposes or placed on your intranet or VLE.

Mr Tombs and Mr Hewes of Eggbuckland College An interesting blog aimed at AQA specification A. The World s First AS Psychology Wiki A wiki works like a website with links and other features, but once you have access, you can take part in constantly improving the contents. This wiki is designed to support the AQA AS Specification A, so any contribution that relates to the content of that specification is welcome. For example, you could correct and clarify existing material or add further examples and explanations. All changes can be undone - either by you or the administrators - so do not be afraid to experiment. You could always post a comment (say about changing one of the key studies) and wait for feedback from other users. General resources/tools Discovery Education Puzzlemaker You are able to create a range of word searches and other types of puzzles on line and then print out for use. There are instructions on how to do this on the web page. You could get students to use this site to build up some basic revision activities, etc. PsychNet-UK Links to sites offering information for planning and presenting psychology courses. Links to sites which offer information to a variety of student lecture information. This could include literature references, online presentation, quizzes and course notes. You may not find a complete lecture course but the link could be useful in your studies. Please note the lectures are not in subject order. Science Museum (UK) Making the Modern World Produced in association with the Peter Symonds College, there is a range of very good interactive learning modules, eg stress and stress management (fits in well with AQA A specification) and measuring the immeasurable. klm 9
