AQA 9-1 Sociology - Crime and Deviance; Biological and Psychological explanations

AQA 9-1 Sociology - Crime and Deviance; Biological and Psychological explanations

This lesson looks at the biological and psychological explanations of crime. I have used the sociological views of Lombroso and Bowlby and linked these to numerous case studies to get students engaged and thinking. All activities are colour coded to link to the objectives and to promote differentiation (choose your route for some; work your way through a traffic light for others). Video links are included in the PowerPoint.

AS Sociology AQA Functionalist views on education

Two worksheets: Functionalist views on education and an evaluation of Functionalist views on education. Both can be used alongside Ken Browne's 'Sociology for AQA Volume 1 textbook', though will also be useful without this book.
