AQA A-level Sociology - Year 2 Education Revision Lesson

(4)
This revision lesson includes an Education Quiz starter with five 'rounds', covering all topics (social class, ethnicity, gender, role of education, and policy). I have included a paper mark-scheme for students to self- or peer-mark. Exam technique is then covered for the 4-, 6-, 10-, and 30- mark questions. I have included this on both the powerpoint and a worksheet to save students writing this out. Students then take part in an engaging Yo! Sushi activity (idea borrowed from a premium TES resource I purchased - thank you!) where they choose the topic and style of question that they plan answers to - depending on how they performed in the starter quiz. The worksheet provided for this includes 20 exam-style questions - one on each topic, for each style of question (4, 6, 10, 30). The powerpoint re-visits the learning objectives throughout, and includes a simple reflective plenary.

A fun and engaging lesson! Students start by trying to convince the majority (the rest of their table group) to convert to their minority view - chosen from options on the powerpoint slide. Minority Influence as a concept is explained by looking at historical cases such as Rosa Parks and the Suffragettes. Students then go on to do a scavenger hunt to complete a worksheet on the Minority Influence AO1. 'Teacher Talk' takes students through Moscovici's key study. The evaluation is then introduced through a card sort, and assessed through a Finger on the Pulse quiz. The learning objectives are revisited throughout, and each is assessed through students answering exam-style questions, before moving onto the next objective. Interactive plenary - HOT SEAT!
