5 Resources
This bundle contains a complete series of workbooks made for GCSE Sociology students. It includes the four new workbooks made for each of the four main sections of the course (Family, Education, Crime & Deviance, and Social Stratification) and, as a bonus resource, my very popular Research Methods workbook. The workbooks were designed for the AQA specification and adapted for the WJEC/EDUQAS specification (two versions of each workbook are included in this resource pack). Each of the four main workbooks contains the following: Student Progress-Check Tasks A Personal Learning Checklist Activity 1 - Mind-Map Overview Task Activity 2 - Reading Comprehension Activity 3 - Key-Work Match & Listing Tasks Activity 4 - Online Research Tasks Activity 5 - Reading Comprehension Activity 6 - Bare-bones Essay Planning Task Activity 7 - Creative Tasks (Posters & Poetry) Activity 8 - Investigate & Report (Newspaper Article Task) Activity 9 - Reading Comprehension Activity 10 - Essay-Planning Activity Activity 11- Essay Assessment Extension Tasks (Many!) Each contains 25+ sides of activities and is designed to be printed as a double-sided workbook. The files are in editable Word (.doc) format in-case you wish to make any amendments (e.g. changing the exam questions). The workbooks are not designed to be a comprehensive: they each include selected readings and cover some (not all) of the topics listed in the specification. If you are happy with your purchase and leave a 5* rating for this TES bundle, please email me ( godwin86@gmail.com ) and I will send you a FREE ‘Revision Strategy Battle Planner’ which will be useful for your Year 11 students.

It contains 60 pages and over 50 tasks, a year’s worth of homework. The tasks are differentiated, the format allows students to select the tasks that interest them each week/fortnight - the booklet instructs students to get their homework tasks signed by parents and the teacher. As a teacher, your only task is to check that students are completing the tasks. This one resource will save teachers of Philosophy and Religion countless hours of work, planning, and assessment. -It covers a variety of religions, philosophical issues, and ethical debates. -Features religious art, and high-level graphic design to encourage engagement. -Fosters independent research skills and allows students to choose topics that interest them -Features activities designed to prepare KS3 students for GCSE topics. -See the attached image for samples of tasks!

GCSE Sociology - Assessment Pack: 20x Practice Exam Sections, Mark-Schemes & Model 12-Mark Answers! (AQA)
godwin86godwin86

GCSE Sociology - Assessment Pack: 20x Practice Exam Sections, Mark-Schemes & Model 12-Mark Answers! (AQA)

6 Resources
This bundle contains 20 GCSE Sociology assessments in the form of practice exam sections. It is designed for the latest AQA specification. Each of the 20 exam sections is half a full exam and takes 50 minutes for students to complete. Each of the 20 exam sections contain a standard set of questions including two 12-mark rubrics: a model answer for one of them is included for each assessment. Each of the 20 exam sections is accompanied by a mark-scheme. In short, in this bundle you get 20 exam sections, 20 mark-schemes, and 20 model 12-mark answers. This bundle should take care of most (if not all) of your GCSE Sociology assessment needs: students should ideally complete these 20 assessments over the 2-year course; data-collection of results allows for easy progress tracking. You may prefer to use them in the run-up to formal public exams: they are ideal for this also! There are five assessments for each of the four main topics: Crime & Deviance, Education, Family & Social Stratification. BONUS RESOURCES: Assessment Feedback Worksheets x2 (A4) Please note: These are not official exam scripts, I do not work for AQA: I have aimed to make reasonable practice exam-questions based on the specimen material already provided. The papers follow the official AQA format and look like official papers. All items are editable: if you think the 12-mark model-answers are too intimidating, feel free to reduce them. .

The Business Studies Debate Generator (GCSE)
godwin86godwin86

The Business Studies Debate Generator (GCSE)

(2)
This download contains an editable 50+ slide PowerPoint featuring the most important debates relevant to Business Studies GCSE students (using the new AQA specification). It also contains a ‘randomiser’ slide so that debate topics can be selected randomly. Debates take an ‘agree or disagree’ format: students are asked to move from one side of the room to the other depending on their response to the statements that appear. All topics are taken from the latest AQA Business Studies (8132) specification though this product is relevant to all teachers of the subject. A seperate debate generator has been created for the Economics (8136) specification: you can find it in our shop. This format allows teachers to foster debates and discussions between students, it can be helpful to ask students to justify their reasons and use sensible arguments. Questions you might ask include: “What is wrong with the other position in your view?”, “Why did you choose to stand where you’re standing?”, “Why do you think people disagree so much about this question?” It is best to encourage students to pick a side rather than float in the middle: but it can also be fun to allow students to change side as the debate progresses, so that students can try to persuade one another to move. This is a great resource to use at the end of lessons if you have a few minutes left, it can be used as an entire lesson or revision session.
