FREE SAMPLE LESSON POWERPOINT: GCSE Sociology (Eduqas) - Introduction to Crime and Deviance

A 10 slide PowerPoint presentation that introduces the topic of crime and deviance. The resource is designed to be delivered to students in a ‘lead from the front’ lesson / revision session format and should take approx. 90 mins to deliver. It includes:

  • A starter task
  • 10 key terms, definitions and examples
  • A group / class debate exercise
  • Key examples of crime and deviance as relative concepts
  • An overview of the social construction of crime and deviance
  • Key examples of the social construction of crime (situational crime, historical crime, cross-cultural crime)
  • Exam style questions - 2 mark, 5 mark and 8 mark
  • Bell task
  • Animated to ‘build’ information to students gradually
  • Brief instructions for the teacher and timing guidance are included in the notes to the document.

The resource is designed to be delivered to students studying the new WJEC/Eduqas GCSE Sociology specification who have no prior knowledge of crime and deviance. Stidents may recognise concepts, e.g. social construction from earlier topics.
