The InThinking IB Psychology website was extremely helpful during my first two years teaching IB Psychology. I have been able to easily gain access and insight into the IB curriculum.

I have used several of the resources on this site! In addition, the site organization has helped me to better grasp how to organize my coursework...I wish I had more free time to search on the site! I'm grateful that our school paid the subscription...

    Emotions
    I am wondering if emotion could be used to teach the prompt, "Examine one interaction between cognition and physiology in terms of behaviour." Would Speisman (1964) and Schachter and Singer (1962) studies be sufficient to use on that prompt...

    It should be fixed by now, Cathy. They were doing an upgrade which went a bit wonky.

    Key studies in the SCLOA

    Curriculum development
    Hi, John, My students and I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the student accessed pages, but as of today (May 25th), they are unable to access those same pages right now. Is student access no longer available? Thanks so much.

    New curriculum textbook
    Dear John, Thank you very much for your response. I think it is a great idea to have a book here since I feel as if this website is my breathing tool :) and can't imagine doing things without it at least not as of the moment. Truly appreciate...

    Writing the IA
    Nerd question. I asked my students to use APA citation style. To the extent they follow the guidelines for the running header, do the words count in the word count? I am wondering if I should limit their use of the style, so to speak, in order...

    HM: Milner (1966)
    Dear Emma, You are correct that there are no evaluation points here - I will add them. I don't know what you mean by "I can't seen anything apart from a cross in the top left corner..." And yes - it is fine that they use this study for ethics.

    9. Human relationships
    Yes, this will be for "formation of personal relationships." It does not say in the guide what type of personal relationships - and in most psychology texts this is the main approach. I also kept it so that we don't have to change so much in...
