A Level Sociology - Education (with Methods in Context) - Sociologists and Studies List

This is a full comprehensive list of sociologists or sociological opinions and studies surrounding the ‘Education’ topic that is typically studied in AS or year 1 of A Level Sociology.

There are 300+ studies and sociologists present in this list, form various sources.

These are a part of A01 - Knowledge and Understanding.
Knowing a lot of sociologists and studies is very impressive and demonstrates your attention to other works.

This List was compiled during my studies, so they are quite abbreviated and not too lengthy but great for quick recall. I submitted this list to my sociology tutors for their opinions, to which I received great feedback that it is an effective tool to use on hand to learn and memorise studies and sociologists, as a sociology student.

Study tips: This list can be converted into a Quizlet set or flashcards, as these are very efficient methods of memorisation. The method of Loci or the ‘memory palace’ or ‘mind palace’ is a great memory technique that can be used in conjunction with this list, for visual learners through written format or visual cognitive format. Often times, to get the mark, just referring to the appropriate name that relates to a topic or the point that you are making, is enough. For example, when talking about gender differences in education and the educational achievements in girls recently, ‘Sharpe and her study of females priorities over-time has supported this claim…’ can be used that which will grant a mark.
