The Sociology of Halloween

The Sociology of Halloween

This Power Point is a bit of fun and a break from our everyday curriculum. This resource can be used with lower year groups as a marketing tool, or as part of Sociology club, or with GCSE year 9 groups. The slides aim to encourage students to think about the representation of gender, sexuality, ethnicity and the body in relation to Halloween. Additionally, there are a few slides which prompt students to focus on the agencies of socialisation and their role in teaching norms and values surrounding Halloween. The Power Point is not designed to be taught in one lesson. Instead, you can pick and select the specific areas you would like to teach and deliver (this includes gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity or body and mental health). Due to this, the lesson objectives are quite vague and generic. You may wish to change these to suit your requirements. There are tasks embedded within the slides with supporting notes. There are progress check slides and visual and discussion based activities. Content and activities are summarised below: Agencies of Socialisation: Discussion concerning the 'deviant' norms and values encouraged within AOS during Halloween. Interactive notebook activity. See Word Doc. Gender activity: Silly to 'sexy'. Female identity and the Halloween costumes. Students create age appropriate costumes aimed at an 8 year old. Sexuality: Discussion based on 'heteronormativity'. Race and ethnicity: Discussion based on racist Halloween costumes. Followed by a literacy based activity where students write a letter of complaint to a Costume Company. Body and mental health: Students focus on a contemporary debate and create a promotional campaign. There are many more topics we can explore as Sociologists, but this resource is a nice little starting point, encouraging higher thinking skills and the development of sociological awareness. AO2 skills are tested throughout. Have fun with it.

Tutor Time Template. October 2017

Tutor Time Template. October 2017

Each morning, during registration, I like to freeze a notice slide on the interactive board. The slide will contain the date, important notices and or instructions, an activity, reminders, an inspirational quote and usually some trivia for students to read. This resource includes 17 slides to use during registration for October 2017. There are no slides during the half term week. Each editable slide states the date, a famous birthday, references either to a key event in history or a key awareness day and also a motivational, mindful or happiness quote. With one key notice slide, students can organise themselves accordingly during registration while you can carry on with the register, mentoring, emails etc.. Some slides include the birthdays of famous singers and artists. I like to play music from the artist during registration. This is something for you to consider. Each slide has space for you to type in your own notices, activity and reminders. I have additionally attached two sample slides from October 2016 that I used with my form. Hope you find it useful.

On slide 9, there is an activity that involves watching a clip from Idiot Abroad (Season 1, Episode 4 Mexico).

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.
