This is a comprehensive list of sociological opinions, sociologists and studies regarding the ‘Families and Household’ unit topic that is typically studied in AS or Year 1 of A Level Sociology.
There are 200+ sociologists and studies on this list that have been pulled from various sources.
These are a part of A01 - Knowledge and Understanding, which will also aid in A03 which is evaluation and analysis.
It is also extremely impressive to be constantly topped up with studies and sociologists as a Sociologist student.
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.
Student 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 divisions of labour, 'Anne Oakley and her study of Housework concluded that women… or Kan et al supports that notion by suggesting that men are increasingly contributing to household duties…'can be used that which will grant a mark. This is a supplementary skill that will score you high marks, especially on essay responses.
