This pack includes everything you need to take your class through a practical research project as part of the AQA GCSE Sociology course. The idea is to allocate each group a research method for them to learn, carry out and then present back to the class. This project takes roughly 12 lessons if all done in class (could be done as HW to make it shorter) This resource includes: A preparation lesson where students work in groups to learn other research methods A comprehensive work book for each group to work through as they complete the project. Through this they will: * Decide upon a hypothesis and aim * Consider the PET issues with their research method. * Consider secondary sources * Deliberate and decide upon a sampling method * Create a plan of action * Reflect upon results * Plan their group presentation * Peer assess the group work Also included: A PPT with slides designed to facilitate each lesson. Summary work sheet for students to record the information about the research method A HW sheet where students reflect individually. I just completed this SOW with my own Yr10 class and they did wonderfully. The results they came out with were fantastic and they were able to give excellent and well informed presentations. If you have time this would also be great to use with A level students.

This activity explores how gender stereotypes are created and maintained. It is suitable for primary to adults (Have trialled it with all) as differentiation is by outcome. The basic premise is to draw and write all the stereotypes of boys/men in one body and all the stereotypes of girls/women in another body. Then list where the messages come from about how the two bodies should be down the centre between the two bodies. Draw arrows to show the pressure on the bodies. around the outside of the bodies we also list the names or situations that can occur for bodies that do not follow the rules. The question is posed “what is the easiest thing for bodies to do- if to step outside their stereotyped body leads to abuse”. The answer is of course remain in our stereotyped bodies- reinforcing them for ourselves and everyone around us. Discussion then explores how we can create spaces for us all to challenge stereotypes and live free from the constraints of stereotypes.
