Looking for a new and more engaging way of teaching the biological approach? Want to trial teaching themantically?

Like all themantic materials, this Criminology chapter is based on addressing real world problems and issues that are meaningful and relevant for students. In this chapter, some of the big questions include:

  • Why are people violent?
  • How can we reduce violence in society?
  • Does prison work?

This digital copy of Chapter Two from our textbook (IB Psychology: A Student's Guide) covers these big questions that will be inherently interesting for students, relevant for their lives now and in the future, and will help give them the knowledge and skills needed to ace their IB Psychology exams.

If you're not sure whether to try the themantic approach to IB Psychology and you want to trial our textbook, the Criminology text and unit gives you the perfect opportunity. In about 30 lessons your students can master all of the following topics from the Bio Approach:

  • Neuroplasticity
  • Localization 
  • Neurotransmitters
  • Techniques to study the brain
  • Hormones
  • Genetics
  • Genetic similarities
  • Evolution and behaviour

In fact, the only topic missing is pheromones (covered in our Love and Marriage chapter). 

Along with these topics, the following are also included to help students understand the complexity of violent crime (and also builds in critical thinking for exam preparation):

  • Culture and behaviour (culture of honor)
  • Social cognitive theory
  • Thinking and decision making (dual process model)
  • Origins of conflict

    You can see that by integrating the core approaches and the options we can explore topics in more depth and in less time. This will reduce content, increase understanding, make revision for students easier and give them more options for the exams. This is how we're increasing student success with the themantic approach to teaching and curriculum design.
