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.

I am very grateful to have an "online collegue" to get new input from, and very importantly, a very organized and structured such.

    Hi John, under the new syllabus it doesn't state structured interviews need to be learned. It only specifies unstructured, semi and focus. Would this stimulus then still apply?

    LP 3: Introducing experiments
    Dear John, what exactly is the difference between a lab experiment and a true experiment? If a lab experiment doesn't involve the random allocation of participants into groups arguably does it not then become a quasi? So according to IB what...

    Practicing Paper 3
    Dear John, I'm quite sure I used to know how to browse Inthinking from the perspective of my own students but I can't seem to find the information on how to do it. I need a mock paper 3 that they have not seen yet, and I have mistakenly...

    Writing samples: Health
    Dear Laura There is no sample yet. I do not plan on having samples for all essays done by May. I am focusing on the lesson plans (five more to go) and the revision materials. As for your question about methods and ethics - no. Remember,...
