AQA Sociology - Year 1 - Sociological perspectives & Core themes

This lesson is designed to provide a brief overview of the core themes and perspectives which run throughout the course.
I would expect this lesson to take around 1 double as a gentle introduction. It could also be used as a taster lesson for Sociology.
There is one workbooklet and one powerpoint. There are also a range of activites and questions for students to complete throughout with a knowledge check to assess understanding at the end.

Whilst it can be challenging for some students, I have found it useful to deliver this lesson before moving on to perspectives of the family as they seem to have a better understanding of ‘what’ the perspectives are.

There are two versions of the booklet; student and teacher. For the student booklet, there are blank spaces throughout and students need to copy down any text written in bold/colour on the powerpoints in their booklets. I find that this helps students remember key terms and phrases. The teacher copy is already filled in. Alternatively, this could also be used for students if time was limited.
