Year 13 – Controversies : Genetic and environmental Influences on behaviour.

I’ve posted a range of documents below, and they will all be useful on this topic, which is a slight modification on the nature/nurture debate. I’ve included two different essay plans which will be the focus of our lessons. Make sure you print them both.

Stars of the Week beginning 16 April – Kim Babbage and Shannon Slaven

Welcome back! Just a few weeks now to our final exam, and it’s been great to observe the positve and determined attitude that you have all brought back since the Easter break. My two stars this week have got their exam heads fully engaged already, and have used lessons and spare bits of lunch-time to clarify with me any questions that remain in their minds from lessons. “So how would I put that in an exam?”  “How many examples do I need to give?”  “Does this essay have enough detail?” Both Shannon and Kim constantly ask these types of questions and don’t stop until they are clear about the answers.

Keep going girls – you are real role models!
