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.

Margaret Holtgreive, Reagan IB High School, USA

An excellent resource which really supports my teaching. I particular have used the Paper 3 stimulus material - they have been a great resource especially the model answers.

Hilary Rowark, St. Christopher’s School, Bahrain

InThinking has been a tremendous help for a first time IB Psychology teacher. The students have found the lessons relevant and rigorous. I am very impressed by the variety of materials and writing samples available on the website.

    SCLOA research methods revision

    Dear Brian - absolutely. I think that this is the easiest way to go as it cuts down on the content that students need to know.

    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...
