Gender Representation Bundle

Gender Representation Bundle

2 PowerPoints provide detailed case studies of gender representation in a TV commercial and a DVD cover. Both are 'rich texts' and lend themselves very well to analysis. A 3rd PowerPoint helps students learn to analyse by using the 'red-green system', which emphasises denotation and connotation when writing about media texts. 2 hours plus teaching in 3 easy to use PowerPoints.

Gender representation -Applied to a DVD cover

Gender representation -Applied to a DVD cover

In this detailed PowerPoint lesson, the concept of gender representation is introduced and then applied to The Adjustment Bureau DVD cover. Using the mnemonic GILT (graphics, image, layout and text) the front and back cover are deconstructed, with detailed notes provided that suggest what sort of observations students should be making. These are presented using the 'red-green' system, a handy way of ensuring students analyse rather than just describe. The lesson ends with an essay title that requires students to apply what they have learned. This would be an ideal way of demonstrating the theory in action, as the chosen contemporary text is an excellent example of gender stereotyping. This PowerPoint would be suitable as an hour long lesson. Please see my other resources at the mediamnemonics TES shop. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/mediamnemonics

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.
