Excellent balance of content vs. process...good up to date and interesting studies ...a great alternative to 'core' texts. ATP I was really impressed with how they have incorporated up to date research into each unit rather than just the old classics, there are lots of activities for independent learning too and it's shiny and pretty! TES Forum, www.tes.co.uk/community These well structured textbooks have lots of colourful illustrations making them very attractive and appealing. The AQA'A' text encourages students to think practically, critically and creatively about psychology by placing icons such as jigsaw pieces (practically), protractor (critically) and paint brushes (creatively) in appropriate places. They also use icons of binoculars for look further and a Rubiks cube for problem solving. This will help to stretch and challenge students. Deb Gajic, Head of Social Science & Chair of the ATP
