Hi recently retired from full time teaching. I spent the last 9 years in sixth form teaching (psychology and sociology) with a little PHSCE and KS3 science on the side. before that I worked as a behaviour support consultant for 8 years in all key stages and nursery. I have led inset on all aspects of behaviour management. I have also worked in PRU and EBD settings and have and still do individual mentoring. As someone with mild Asperger's I am particularly interested in all aspects of ASD.

Print out the slides on cards, prepare enough packs for one between 4 students. You will need one die for each group The cards are a little like the chance cards in Monopoly. Each has a chance of adding years to life or taking years away. The game should take about 15 minutes to play, 10 minutes afterwards in discussion and completing life chances table. This can be followed by teacher input. The subject matter can be used for health unit or wealth poverty and welfare It focuses on the main sociological explanations for inequalities in health and turns them into a game of chance

Adoption studies for psychology Edexcel

(0)
This is an end of unit lesson on adoption studies to go with the biological approach specifically: The environment of adoptive children is not the same as that of their biological families They have genes in common. Can be used to assess the extent to which behaviours such as aggression are the result of nature (genes) or nurture (environmental influences). This is done by comparing the children to their biological parent and their adoptive parent. If the children are more similar to their biological parents this supports nature. If they are more similar to their adoptive parents this supports nurture

essay "assess the view that the nuclear family is good for the individual and society" A grade

(0)
Note only first two paragraphs now visible This is a teacher written essay, written in the simplest, most straightforward style. It is not elegant or advanced, but good to illustrate a structure for those who have to learn how to write good essays. Assess the view that the nuclear family is good for society and the individual. "The nuclear family is the traditional family of the industrial society in the UK. It is seen as ideal and another name for it is the cereal packet family because the ideal is like the families represented in adverts. Familial ideology suggests it is better than any other type of family and is good for society and the individual. In this essay these assumptions will be evaluated." TIP: I give my students 4 coloured highlighters, one for supporting arguments, one for criticism , one for correctly idetified theoriests and theroetical terms and one for concluding or summative commentary. we go through the essay comparing the colour patterns at the end. It is a great confidence booster for them
Role Play Game to Introduce Marxism in Sociology

Role Play Game to Introduce Marxism in Sociology

(0)
I have run this game each year for about 7 years. I developed it because I found that most sixth form students are victims of “false class consciousness” and need a vivid understanding ofa different perspective not given to them by the media. They believe meritocracy without evidence but won't approach Marxism with an open ming (I find) For this game you will need large amounts of stickle bricks or other construction blocks (ebay or car boot sales are a good source) copies of the role play cards and a large box of Heros or wrapped sweets of some kind). You will need to print out labels for The factory and shop. The aim of the game is to illustrate the role of the worker in the economy and what happens when they do not share in the wealth created by their labours. The PPT also contains some other optional slides to introduce Marxism which can stimulate discussion before or after the exercise.

How to write a basic long sociological essays

Many lower ability A level students get "pushed" toward sociology because there is a perception in some quarters at least, that it is an easy subject.It is not, especially if literacy is a weakness. I have used this presentation along with some work sheets I developed to help weaker students grasp two essential elements of the sociological writing: 1. presenting competing arguments 2. writing in an analytical/ detached style

Blooms Hierarchy Questions for Sociology

I used to teach in a school where some very weak students ended up doing sociology. I developed this resource to explicitly teach then the differences in the answers expected at A level to achieve good marks/grades. This resource could also be used in training/mentoring teachers in the use of blooms questioning, which I found very useful. I used to write out questions and target them according to the student. This can be a useful discipline when teaching classes with widely differing abilities until you get used to them.

This is developed for sociology but with minor alterations could be used elsewhere in the curriculum. This resource could also be used in teacher training/mentoring on how to teach students how to write essays. It provides step by step instructions and has a task at the end. You need to provide your own exemplar essay or download one of mine to use with the tasks at beginning and possibly the end too
