A couple of months ago this blog featured examples of Sociology Factsheets created and sold by the Curriculum Press and this month it’s the turn of Psychology, of which I’ve found the following examples:

 

As with their sociological counterparts the basic design rules are relatively simple:

  • short topic notes focused on key knowledge points
  • illustrative examples
  • overviews of advantages and disadvantages
  • exam tips
  • short “test yourself” questions

 

There are around 200 Factsheets currently available – and their web site does some good deals on subscription purchases – but an alternative is to get your students to make their own.

All you need is some simple DeskTop Publishing software (like the free Serif PagePlus Starter Edition – it’s easy to learn and surprisingly powerful) and a little bit of planning and guidance from you…
