This would be a good resources for an introduction lesson to identity for any sociology course. The lesson pack includes: Bell task: changing ethnicity of celebrities Starter task: sticky back Main activity: In pairs/groups students work on a different aspect of identity: age, class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, nationality. There is an information sheet on each aspect. There is additional information fr some aspects to provide stretch and challenge for some pairs/groups. The additional materials get students to analyse and evaluate the influence of that area on identity. The areas are as follows: Age- additional information on pro-dove campaign Gender- growing number of people not choosing a gender for their children Nationality- Scottish referendum Social class- socialclassthegaurdian and tale of two Davids (the tale of two Davids gets students to question social class as a concept as David Beckham has much more money than David Cameron) The plenary asks students to write an introduction to identity for some HSC coursework but this can be adapted for any course.

Concepto de "desterritorización"

Concepto de "desterritorización"

La complejidad de la sociedad moderna conlleva la disfunción de perder el apego por el terrritorio en el cual se vive. La “desterritorización” es el proceso que conduce al individuo a sustentar su vida sin ligazones con el espacio físico, sin un suelo compartido, sin un sitio material del cual obtener recursos.

AQA Social Stratification- The Welfare State (11/15)

AQA Social Stratification- The Welfare State (11/15)

Planned for 9-1 AQA specification. This lesson can take 2 hours (double lesson) if you watch the documentary. Students complete an information sheet on what the Welfare State introduced after the war. They then look at New Right, Centre-Left, Marxist and Feminist perspectives on welfare. There are some extension questions for those who complete this. There is then a documentary about the benefits cap. The idea is to offer this as a possible solution, but for students to think about the implications of this. This documentary is not essential for the course, but it is a nice way for students to think about alternatives to the welfare state, or to consider if the welfare state is a worthwhile investment with taxation.
