As you may have noticed if you’ve looked at our latest Psychology releases, we’ve recently turned our collective attention towards the topic of metacognition which, in basic terms, involves understanding how and why students learn. Or, equally-importantly, why they fail to learn. Either way, the first batch of films in what promises to be a […]
From time-to-time I come across GCSE Sociology resources that I think are worth passing-on to teachers and students and these two documents are no exception. Because if they were I wouldn’t be linking to them. Obviously. The first is a Revision Pack created by C Pym of Whalley Range High School. It covers the 2022 […]
The latest British Attitudes Survey on Gender Roles (and domestic labour in particular).

Every so often I chance upon web sites that have been started by teachers with what seems like a shed-load of initial enthusiasm. They create and distribute lots of free resources in a relatively short space of time and then suddenly just abandon their baby before it’s had a chance to really grow. One of […]
As many of you will already know, Tutor2U produces a shed-load of revision-type resources, from workbooks to flashcards to complete courses. Most of these can be purchased for varying amounts of cash (all major credit cards also accepted) but there’s plenty of stuff you can get for free in exchange for an email address (the […]
