'Examine the advantages & disadvantage of official stats as a source of data for the Sociologist'

'Examine the advantages & disadvantage of official stats as a source of data for the Sociologist'

This is an 20/20 essay answer to: ‘Examine the advantages and disadvantage of official statistics as a source of data for the sociologist’. DO NOT PLAGARISE (this is an actual piece of student work), through copy and pasting, neither through typing out word to word when seen, as this can be tracked down by the marker or examiner, and you will be disqualified. However, it is to take ideas and structure from, as many sociology students struggle to effectively use studies and sociologists in their evaluations.

Religion in the UK

Religion in the UK

An induction activity for students studying A level Sociology. I give the students this activity to complete during the summer break between Year 12 and 13 in preparation for the Beliefs in Society module. It gets them thinking about how they will conduct the research. I encourage them to explore some primary research and visit a local religious community. During the lessons, they have a great case study to apply to what they learn, particularly those students that are not members of a religious community.

BTEC Command word differences and meanings

I designed this activity for Level 2 BTEC learners, getting them use to the command words found in their assignments. Links with embedding English as they will use a dictionary to search for the definitions of each word. The tasks can support the learners understanding of each command word and put them into practice. Can be adapted for any Level and extra assignment tips can be added.
