Hi, I am Natalie

I've been teaching WJEC/Eduqas for quite some time now, and am always up for chatting with others who do the same syllabus.  I'm so happy that so many of you find my resources useful, and hope that I can keep on being of use!

Check my profile for full lesson plans and resources for the spec. I am covering schizophrenia, criminal behaviour and addiction.

Commented on IB Socio-Cultural: McArthur (1972) - Situational and dispositional attributions

This classroom activity provides students with a series of scenarios with information relating to consensus, distinctiveness and consistency and they have to make situational or dispositional attribution according to Kelley's covariation model. Please bear in mind , I have not taught this topic before and am trialling new activities for the frist time, Please let me know if you think they are okay or need modifying!! :O) The activity was based on McArthur (1972): Pps were given 16 behavioural descriptions; 4 were about emotional reactions, 4 were about accomplishments, 4 statements of opinion and 4 about intentional actions. Pps were asked to rate the extent to which they believed the descriptions to be due to something about the person (disposition) or something about the environmental circumstances (situation). There were two groups; one group only received the behavioural descriptions while another group received the descriptions and information relating to consensus, consistency and distinctiveness.
