I'm not sure if you've heard but try to use burger paragraphs:
Top bun (point); is this a strength or weakness? - whats your point?
Middle bun (evidence); where's the evidence to support this - study?
Bottom bun (explanation); why is this a strength or weakness?
Link - why does this matter for this theory/model? (or whatever you're evaluating)

Plus, you can even counter your paragraph by turning a weakness into a strength. This can also not only save you time writing separate paragraphs but it makes your evaluation much more effective.

e.g. One criticism of Ainsworth's strange situation is that it has low ecological validity. This is because the experiment was done in a lab environment with controlled conditions and psychologists observing under a 2 way mirror. Therefore using the strange situation to assess attachment types is an artificial method and doesn't reflect attachment types in real life settings or situations. This lowers it's internal/construct validity as it isn't assessing what it claims to be. However, since it was done in controlled conditions, this means standard procedures were used and is easily replicable. This means that the strange situation has also become a paradigm as it has been used, as a standard procedure, to assess attachment types in different parts of the world. (Culture - Van Ljzendoorn)

Substantiate everything with evidence. Be critical of this evidence. Implications for theory, implications for current thought in psychology? Ramifications for free will and determinism, nature and nurture.

most effective way is to basically make notes from the book and memorise the points you have made about A03 and AO1 also. Personally for psychology the whole book is relevant so i just memorise the whole book. You can do that by making notes and memorising them, you will end up cutting just a little bit from the book, pretty much the whole book is relevant for psych. If you can work better by making notes do that but bare in mind what i said the whole book is relevant. You want to also make your AO3 point evaluative. For example a contradiction of Zimbardos stanford prison experiment... or a criticism.... or a weakness of..... or a strength. Or so and so can be supported by. Sign post to the examiner that you are making an evaluative point don't leave them to guess. Hope i helped

I have been using PEEL but miss thinks they are ineffective - only reason it could be is that l am doing the PEEL structure wrong.🤦🏾*♂️

i always start my evaluation with something like "supporting/contradicting research comes from..." and then i'll say why the study supports or contradicts what is being asked even if it sounds like i'm stating the obvious

you could also use this for debates as evaluation by saying "a debate that supports this is... because..." if you're an a2 student
