Teacher resources

This section of the Inthinking website is devoted to materials that support teachers in teaching of IB Psychology.

If as you work through the site you think of something that is missing that you would like to see added, please always feel free to email me at cranejp@icloud.com - and I will try to get something on the site as soon as possible.

What you will find in this section

  • Activities to do with your students
  • Curriculum clarifications
  • Guidelines for the Extended Essay
  • Lesson plans for each topic
  • Setting up the internal assessment
  • Suggestions for distance learning
  • Teaching strategies that can be applied in any area of the curriculum
  • Unit planners

Although some of the teaching activities can be shared with your students, most of this section cannot be shared.  This is for your planning and teaching.
