AS Sociology Paper 2 Revision Globalisation of the family NEW SPECIFICATION

AS Sociology Paper 2 Revision Globalisation of the family NEW SPECIFICATION

Student's find this area of the AS course quite difficult to comprehend and to be honest sometimes it can be tricky for us teachers to teach! Particularly as the new specification really focuses on GLOBALISATION and the impact it has on the family.I have uploaded a 1hr lesson to revise this topic, in a simplified way which explores key aspects of globalisation that have explicit links to family structures! As some of the other features may be to obscure to explain well. I have also created a detailed teacher answer page of the complete links from gloabalisation, to family structure, to social policy and to sociological theory! You can use this as a guide to support students in exploring these themes or you can actually just give it to them to revise from! Lesson objectives:To evaluate, using sociological evidence, the impact of globalisation and family policies and the changes this has had on the structures of families.

Small Social Experiments: Sociological Experiment Cards

Small Social Experiments: Sociological Experiment Cards

This resource is intended to help introduce GCSE or AS Sociology students to sociological research and experiments: what they are, what their purpose is, and the issues involved in conducting experiments or research.There are 6 cards, each with a different experiment for a pair of students to conduct. The experiments are linked to three basic topics (norms and values, deviant behaviour and gender). This means that students will be expert enough in the topic to conduct a meaningful piece of research and that the key focus for learning can be sociological research/experiments. Once students have carried out the activity (either during lesson time or for homework), they are then asked to discuss results, their conclusions and to evaluate how effectively they conducted the research. This can then form the basis of a discussion about what affects results, validity and reliability.Cover picture 'the by-stander effect': By رمزي زودة (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons
