EDUQAS GCSE: Culture and Norms

EDUQAS GCSE: Culture and Norms

This resource is a PowerPoint with several interactive tasks embedded within the slides. The lesson is aimed at year 9 GCSE Sociology students with a focus on 'culture' and 'norms'. The lesson was made with the Eduqas exam board in mind, however it does fit other GCSE course- not slide 13 (Eduqas exam questions). For this lesson, you will need scissors, glue, dictionaries, mini wipe-boards and pens. For the plenary you may prefer to use buzzers if you have them. This will add a little competition to the end of your lesson- which is always good fun! You may wish to print off slide 7 for students to stick in their exercise books. On slide 9, there is an activity that involves watching a clip from Idiot Abroad (Season 1, Episode 4 Mexico). There is a link to a censored clip in the notes of the slides, however any episode can be made relevant to the task set. Activities are differentiated with 'You must, You should and You could'. Slide 13 has sample multiple choice exam questions (like section one on the Eduqas paper).

Eduqas: Social Inequality. C3 paper. Researching areas of life

Eduqas: Social Inequality. C3 paper. Researching areas of life

As Eduqas teachers are aware, it's pretty difficult to cover and teach all areas of life during lesson time. Last year, I covered the main areas of life (Education and Work) and encouraged students to research the other areas independently. The Power Point attached instructs and encourages students to research alternative areas of life using resources available to them. You can do this in lesson time, but I would recommend setting this as homework. My students were given interactive templates to help them on their way. See attached.

GCE AQA Sociology Methodology Concepts (7191/2, 7192/1, 7192/3)

The Concepts PowerPoint works through the whole lesson - explaining and prompting where activities follow. It works through looking at the methodology recapping on Practical, Ethical and Theoretical (PET - see choice of Methods), along with other concepts. The Concepts PPT, I used by printing off and getting students to find their matching pair. This was used to conclude the Methods unit of work.
