IB Psychology: A student’s guide (Buy now!)

**Now available** PREVIEW EXTRACT HERE!!!

This is a complete textbook that accompanies our themantic approach to teaching IB Psychology. The text is arranged in a unit-by-unit, topic-by-topic, lesson-by-lesson structure. Our approaches and options are aligned in four units (Criminology; Social Influence; Love and Marriage; PTSD). The result is a more in-depth exploration of psychology in less time. All the relevant units, topics and lessons are also provided for other aspects of the course, such as research methods, ethics, HL extensions and the IA.

IB PsychologyA revision guide

**Coming Soon**

This revision guide contains similar contents (in revision format) as the student’s guide textbook. The text will still be structured by the approaches and options, and by topics (e.g. interpersonal relationships) and the sub-topics (e.g. formation of relationships) as they appear in the IB guide.

Example answers and responses for all three papers will be included, as well as examiner-style comments.

This will be available before first exams for the new syllabus in May 2019.

A Student’s Guide to Writing Excellent Exam Answers: For IB Psychology

**Coming Soon*

Understanding the demands of command terms, assessment rubrics and how these apply to exam answers can be a nightmare for teachers and students. Our guide to writing exam answers provides clear explanations for writing excellent exam answers.

The text is not about providing sample answers for students to memorise; it’s designed to facilitate an understanding of the purpose of writing exam answers and how the style, structure and content can be crafted to suit this purpose. It’s hoped that understanding how to communicate understanding effectively in the IB Psych’ exams can be transferred to other subjects as well.


Ten Principles of Teaching: A Common Sense Approach to a Timeless Practice

The art and science of teaching is a passion of ours at Themantic Education. This book will provide a common sense rationale for ten basic principles of the timeless practice of teaching. If there’s one thing education doesn’t need, it’s more theory. We’re aware of this at ThemEd and our goal is not to provide more theory in the abstract: we want to help teachers align common sense principles of teaching with classroom practice.

It’s also hoped that the principles can be used by schools and administrators to help improve the quality of teaching in their schools.
