Lesson1 : All groups recieved the new Social Psychology pack as well as the ecological validity/expt question work sheet. If you missed this lesson come and collect the packs from me as soon as you can.
HW: Read the introduction to social psychology in your text book and answer the questions on p4 of the social psy pack.
Group A: Were handed back the cognitive psychology pack and the science pack. We went through each pack looking at common errors and omissions. It was sad to see that so many of you had handed in incomplete packs and work that was below the expected standard! We worked through the sheet on ecological validity and you were asked to complete the experiment questions for additional HW.
Group C: Were handed back the cognitive psychology pack not the science pack. We went through the cognitive pack looking at common errors and omissions. Please ensure that any extra sheets are included next time so I have a proper record of your work. We worked through the sheet on ecological validity. We started to consider what we mean by social psychology and I mentioned the Poland trip…more details to follow.
Group E: Were handed back the cognitive psychology pack and the science pack. We went through each pack looking at common errors and omissions. Because you never did the Lab vs field experiment exam question as part of the mock you did it this lesson. I handed out the ecological validity sheet which we will look at next lesson.
Lesson 2: Group A and E went straight into Milgram’s obedience research. Group C went through the science pack and then into obedience. All classes watched the original Milgram footage in order to get a better understanding of what the research was and why it was undertaken. All students should read the Milgram section of the text book. You can also google search to find replications by Derron Brown and others. look for Milgram or obedience to authority.
Lesson 3: We organised next weeks review appts and I set work for you to do during the sessions in which we were having the reviews. We also went through a rather harrowing Milgram power point which you can find in the social approach section of I Learn.
Remember to bring your folder and a print out of the ‘organisation sheet’ with you to your review. If you missed the lesson please email me directly for a review time.
Work set for review sessions:
1. Go to I Learn target setting section and decide on 2 or 3 targets to be written into your target section of I Learn. These will be used as part of your review so you need to do this ahead of your appt.
2. Complete pages 6-17 in the social psychology pack – you can use additional resources on I Learn and your text book to help you. This section is all about Milgram’s baseline expt and the 1965 variation you need to know for the exam.
3. Read and complete pages 32-37 in your social psychology pack -it’s all about the Hoffling study. You can find additional information in your text book p20.
GROUP E WILL HAVE A TAUGHT LESSON ON WEDNESDAY.
GROUPS A AND C WILL HAVE TAUGHT SESSIONS ON FRIDAY
