As with their sociological counterparts, Psychology Learning Tables come in a variety of styles, have been constructed for a range of different reasons and the ones I’ve scoured the web to find relate to different Specifications and exams. Keep these provisos in mind, however, and you’ll find some of these Tables useful – either “as is” or as inspiration for creating Tables of your own.
Since I’ve managed to find quite a few Tables on different areas of the Specification I thought it would be easier and more-convenient to post the first couple of batches alphabetically.
The Tables have been put-together by different authors at different times and I’ve indicated any significant differences and departures from the basic “Learning Table” format.
Attachment LT1 Key Concepts [Melissa Yeadon]
Attachment LT2 Core Theory [Melissa Yeadon]
This Table focuses on Bowlby’s theory of attachment and it links neatly with the following Table:
Attachment LT2 Core Theory AO2 [Miss K Elles]
This is a slightly different Table for a couple of reasons: firstly, it focuses solely on a single idea (criticisms of Bowlby) and, secondly, it shows how students can express criticisms in terms of a “PEEL paragraph” (Point, Explanation, Evaluation, Link) that is itself rated in terms of a possible exam grade (E, C or A). If this sounds a bit complicated have a look at the Table and all will become clear; it’s a very cleverly-constructed variant.
Attachment LT3 Alternative Theory Behaviourist [M. Yeadon]
Attachment LT4 Core Study AO1 [Miss K Elles]
Attachment LT4 Core Study AO2 [Miss K Elles]
As with the LT2 Core Theory AO2 Table this is constructed in the same way for a different theory: Hazen & Shaver’s (1987) study of how attachment types in infancy affect adult relationships
Attachment LT5 Real life apps [Melissa Yeadon]
This Table includes a couple of exam questions that you may have to update for the latest Specifications.
Biological Rhythms – Circadian Rhythms AO1 and AO3 [Miss G Banton]
Biological Rhythms – Infradian and Ultradian Rhythms AO1 and AO3 [Miss G Banton]
Culture Bias AO1 and AO3 [Miss G Banton]
These three Tables adopt a slightly different structure insofar as they devote one page to knowledge about the topic (AO1) and a further page to how it can be expressed (AO3) in terms of an exam paragraph (again using the PEEL technique).
