Uploaded a file called Schizophrenia whole topic revision PPT (new spec)

My students like it if I run through the whole topic at the end of a unit so I prepare these whole topic summaries which go through 'the bare bones' of each unit. This is the one for schizophrenia (new spec). I usually print it off and get students to add in extra details then they have to fill out a revision table or I question them on the slides as we go through. They like it as a quick recap. Some slides are based on stuff I've found on here so thanks if you recognise anything. Information comes mainly from the dog book and the pink hair girl book.

Uploaded a file called Cognitive approach to treating depression essay activity

Students have to sort the statements in AO1 and AO3 points, add in any missing details and then cut and stick to order logically to construct an essay. By doing this they have an example essay which I got them to condense down into bullet points then rewrite using only their bullet points as a guide. Seemed to particularly benefit the weaker students who need to see an example first.

Uploaded a file called Leaflet template for treatments for schizophrenia

I created this template for my students to then use to create a leaflet where they show they understand all of the treatments for SZ. They have to write in evidence and evaluate it by providing information about how effective and appropriate the treatment is. They found it useful to consolidate their understanding of all the treatments.Quite a simple template and could be adapted.

Uploaded a file called CBT for schizophrenia activity

The worksheet includes some statements from a patient with schizophrenia and the students have to imagine they are a therapist doing CBTp with the patient and write some appropriate responses using what they have learnt about the principles of CBT. I used it to get the students to apply what they and learnt about how CBT works. They really seemed to enjoy it.

Uploaded a file called Physical attractiveness 16 marker essay sort activity NEW SPEC

A selection of AO1 and AO3 statements for a 16 marker on 'Discuss physical attractiveness as a factor affecting attraction in romantic relationships'. students have to sort the statements into AO1 and AO3 points then cut and stick in an order that makes sense. Students found it useful as a scaffold for the 16 marker.

Uploaded a file called New Spec AQA 12 and 16 marker learning mat

I'm yet to test this! But made it as students last year found it hard to get their heads around reaching the top bands particularly for AO3. My plan is to get them to use the learning mat whilst they are writing an extended essay question (12 marker AS, 16 marker A) then gradually ween them off it until they can do it without the mat prompting them. Print on A3 and laminate :)I've used cupcakes as an analogy as well!

Uploaded a file called Comparison of approaches 16 marker essay plan NEW AQA SPEC

Used this for the comparison of approaches part of the new spec. I got them to use some of the issues and debates (nature/nurture, determinism and reductionism) as well treatments of abnormal behaviour as themes for comparison so students can structure their AO3 based on these. It also allowed me to embed issues and debates. :)

Uploaded a file called Attachment whole topic for New Spec AQA 2015

Powerpoint covering the whole of Attachment unit on the new AQA spec. I use this at the very end of the unit, students get a copy and we go through it as a class, students are expected to annotate and add to it to build their revision notes. They find it useful to consolidate what we have covered.
