This provides a 1 hour starter/taster to sociology develops the ideas of society, role, stereotyping - as well as developing themes such as social control, belief, family, education etc.
The session is taught through the PowerPoint and based around discussion of the roles needed for society, whats needed to create a functional society, who would best provide the roles and inevitably stereotyping. Students typically discuss the need for power and control and who has it. This leads to some nice early ideas developing Marxism and Functionalism. Accompanying resources are attached. This is based on the lifeboat game.
I have a 2 taster sessions (both uploaded).
