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

Introduction and overview of qualitative methods for Sociology

This is a lesson with activities to introduce qualitative methods. These is a lot of content in this so you may want to split into two. The basic content could also be adapted for psychology too. Students need to understand PERVERT for an exercise included here but it is fully explained in a slide you can use or print out as a "mat" for lessons

Blooms Hierarchy Questions for Sociology

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.

Basic Sociological Theory Revision for AS / higher performing GCSE students

Basic Sociological Theory Revision for AS / higher performing GCSE students

This is a resource I constructed for "weaker" A level students who had difficulty with theory it applies the theory to class. I used it during an intervention session where I went through each approach and then got the students to make a revision resource for each section . It does not contain many theorist names so is more suitable for the current AS exam rather than the A level. It could be printed out and given as revision cards for students.
