Influence of attachment research on child care practices

The AQA A specification has a tricky application topic right at the end:

  • How research into attachment and day care has influenced child care practices

Potentially this could be set as a 12 mark question – I have recently completed a great new revision app for AS and addressed the issue of what you might put in an answer. I have attached the text that will go into the app – it’s in a slightly strange format: Application of attachment research The app is very focused on the exact demands of the exam.

The app should be available early next year.

Remember, for a 12 mark answer you probably want 3 AO1 paragraphs of 50 words and 3 AO2 paragraphs of 50 words.

It is actually more likely that students would get an application question on this topic, rather than an essay.
