Book Description

Directly linked to Oxford's bestselling DP Psychology resources, this new Course Preparation resource thoroughly prepares students to meet the demands of IB Diploma Programme Psychology. Ideal for students who have studied non-IB courses at pre-16 level, the text introduces learners to the IB approach, terminology and skills.

The focus for this resource is to build understanding of the key concepts and skills and use the DP content to introduce and articulate the bigger concepts and skills so that students are prepared for their Diploma course. Topics and concepts will be introduced and covered using reals world examples, case studies and applications. Content will be formally scaffolded to help students both build skills and content knowledge so that they are well prepared for their course and absorb
DP knowledge more effectively.
