Social Stratification (20 Lessons) [ GCSE Sociology ] Power & Authority

This bundle contains 20 lessons for the 'Social Stratification' section of the new GCSE Sociology specification. This bundle was updated in March 2020 so that all of the PowerPoints are in the standard format and, consequently, more easy to edit than before. Whilst it is useful to any teacher of Sociology, it was designed for the new AQA Sociology GCSE specification (8192) taught from September 2017. It is designed to be a self-contained, comprehensive and complete resource: everything a teacher/department need to teach the social stratification section of the course. Each lesson comes in a .Zip file which contains: -A detailed lesson plan: highlighting differentiation, AfL, key-words, SMSC and a timeline of learning activities (.pdf) -A premium quality, editable, PowerPoint Presentation -Homework \[-Most of the lessons include a worksheet (double-sided A4 or A3)\] We take considerable time making the highest quality lessons and we believe these are the best GCSE Sociology resources money can buy, positive reviews are greatly appreciated (and rewarded, just email me). Our intention is to have the other units of the new GCSE Sociology course available by June.

Excellent introduction lesson, great start to the new unit. I especially liked the task of getting the students to think up their own possible exam questions! Thank you!

I have bought several of this author's resources and find them extremely helpful. The pupils respond really well to them; finding them highly motivating. My one complaint is that I cannot easily adapt the ppts to fit the required style of my school. I would very much like to be able to do this!
