Social Impact Theory

Tasks and Resources

  • Make structured notes into your workbook on Social Impact. You will need:
    • Description of the theory (A01)
    • Evaluation of the theory (A03) – you can still use GRAVE-c but link each A03 to a piece of A01
    • Create flash cards for the theory
  • Prepare to answer the questions at the bottom in class (i.e. learn the material!!)
  • Find out about the ‘Bystander Effect’ – and the case of Kitty Genovese

Typical Question

Evaluate the theory of social impact as an explanation of obedience, with reference to another theory of obedience you have studied. (12)
