AQA Sociology - Year 1 - Research Methods - Research process

This lesson is designed to cover the research process involved within sociology. There is one workbooklet and one powerpoint.
I would expect this lesson to take around 1-2 double lessons depending upon class size.
The lesson contains some student led activities including an optional independent research project. There is also a sampling activity involving the use of smarties (or coloured buttons!) but students learning will not be hindered if this task if not included.
There are two versions of the booklet; student and teacher. For the student booklet, there are blank spaces throughout and students need to copy down any text written in bold/colour on the powerpoints in their booklets. I find that this helps students remember key terms and phrases. The teacher copy is already filled in. Alternatively, this could also be used for students if time was limited.
