OCR Sociology A Level Revision Booklets (New Spec) ALL 3 EXAMS

OCR Sociology A Level Revision Booklets (New Spec) ALL 3 EXAMS

3 booklets containing information about essay structure for each question type, lists of questions for each question type, and specification overview. All three exams are covered in the three booklets. Questions have been taken from elsewhere or thought up by myself. We print each booklet in different colours. Front page will need to be changed to suit the school and examination date. All in PDF format, sorry I don't seem to have the publisher/word versions any more. Please note: This is NOT a content revision booklet, it is just for structure of exam questions, specification overview and practice questions. Took roughly 8 hours to make the booklets. Last year over half our students achieved A*/A in A Level Sociology (2 were predicted an A/A*).

White collar vs Blue collar crime

White collar vs Blue collar crime

Two worksheets on white collar vs blue collar crime. One is a notetaking sheet outlining the differences between the two types of crime using the WJEC GCSE Sociology book to help them (could use any book though that outlines the differences between the two) The other sheet gets students thinking about types of crime that could be committed within each job role (focusing on white collar crime). Made for GCSE but could be adapted/used for A Level as a quick activity.

Sociology theories display! or Theory overview sheets for students

Sociology theories display! or Theory overview sheets for students

All the resources you need for a Sociology theories display. I have included: 4 theory overview sheets (Marxism, Feminism, Functionalism and New Right). On each of those sheets is some information regarding: Theory's view about society, key sociologists linked to that theory, views on the family and views on crime. These can be changed if you study a different topic as they are in publisher format. I have also included pictures and pieces of information, quotes etc that I used for my display. I do not own the rights to the pictures and so to make it clear, you are paying for the overview sheets and the information I have produced. I have included the picture about how I laid it out, but you may wish to lay it out differently. I also backed on different coloured paper to highlight the different theories. Currently working on Interactionism and Postmodernism. Alternatively/additionally, you can print off just the overview sheets to hand out to students. Took roughly 6 hours to do make all of the resources so asking for £8. Once it's all up though it will last for years and won't need updating. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
