'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.

A Level Sociology - Families and Households - Sociologists and Studies

This is a comprehensive list of sumarised sociological opinions, sociologists and studies regarding the ‘Family and Household’ unit topic that is typically studied in AS or Year 1 of A Level Sociology. These are a part of A01 - Knowledge and Understanding, which will also aid in A03 which is evaluation and analsyis. It is also extremely impressive to be constantly topped up with studies and sociologists as a Sociologist student, as often time, you can refer to them and this quality is very creditable, especially to your teachers. Student Tip: I recommend that this list is converted to virtual flashcard such as ‘Quizlet’ and ‘Memrize’ for optimal, fast memorization. This is a supplementary skill that will score you high marks, especially on essay responses.
