Template for writing "Examine" essay with worked example for Family topic

The framework was not an original idea but the worked example is. This is a teacher written essay, written in the simplest, most straightforward style. It is not elegant or advanced, but good to illustrate a structure for those who have to learn how to write good essays. An examine essay requires two or more different perspectives given equal weight. It does not require one perspective which is evaluated.this is the title and introduction: Examine ways in which childhood can be said to be socially constructedChildhood, seen as a separate existence from adulthood has not always existed. Similarly ideas about childhood: its length, characteristics and how children are regarded vary from place to place. When a characteristic such as childhood varies between cultures and at different times it is said to be socially constructed. This essay will examine the ways in whether concepts of childhood are entirely socially constructed TIP: I give my students 4 coloured highlighters, one for point of one perspective , one for each subsequent perspective , one for correctly idetified theoriests and theroetical terms and one for concluding or summative commentary. we go through the essay comparing the colour patterns at the end. It is a great confidence booster for them

Education: What do sociologists say about Gender, Education and Achievement? (Lesson 7)

Education: What do sociologists say about Gender, Education and Achievement? (Lesson 7)

This lesson is aimed at GCSE Year 9 students. It focusses on introducing students to the work of different sociologist and their views on gender in education. Students should by the end of the lesson be able to back up a reason for the gender gap in education with a researcher. The lesson includes a GCSE question with sentence starters if needed for less able, as well as a model answer than can be assessed by the class and used to improve their own, or class can improve the model answer. Furthermore, when I teach this lesson I organised for the classes to go to our sixth form and carry out basic "research" on the issue of gender. Student look at the differences between subject selection and attitudes on homework. Students can use this to then evaluate the work of the sociologist. Students really enjoyed this as they felt they were carry out authentic research. This also allows a brief introduce into methods of research. There is a tally sheet to help them carry this out. If there is no sixth form they can go to other GCSE classes. Or this can be set as homework before the lesson for them to complete.
