This resource is for AQA Alevel english language students who want to understand the structure of paper 1. i have included: advice on timings, structure, section A, section B, and key things to know like child language theorists and the strengths and weaknesses of their theory.
I find this source really useful and used it for my first paper also.
I Made this resource because I found it difficult to remember both he dates of the policies and the party they came from along side whether the policies supported: equality of opportunity, diversity and choice, raising standards or meet needs of the economy.
in the 2019 paper i got an A* and i only revised from my notes uploaded
I put them in chronological order and then included the criticising theorists for each policy and what they argue the policy doesn’t support
i found this really useful so hopefully someone else will too x
For A level students who study OCR sociology and need revision on inequalities. I created this 8 page revision sheets set which includes: age, ethnic, gender and social class inequalities and evidence for inequalities in these areas like education, media, economic and health (statistics).
This is a really useful resource which i am using for my exams this year as it has pretty much everything you would need for section B in the UNIT 2 exam.
[edited: the end result of using all my resources was an A*]
I would recommend writing these down on flash cards and trying to remember who says what, and the statistics. I have done statistics for each area and found that it is important to know between 9-12 stats.
hope this is as useful for you as it is for me :)
(the preview is of the evidence page for social class, my grids for inequality theorists are large and contain 4 sociologists in almost all of them)
this is a quick and easy table that can be remembered to help you understand the different sociological theorists that talk about youth subcultures. i have included:marxist, functionalist, post modernist, interactionalist, types of subcultures, characteristics and reasons for emergence.
i found this very useful as it isn’t a time consuming thing to learn but in this grid will make it easier to learn due to the colours.
i would recommend writing these onto revision cards so you can test yourself or get someone else to test you.
i have planned two forty mark questions for the differential achievement questions in the education section of paper 3. This could be useful for structure if you are a bit unsure or if you would like past questions to complete and check if they could be marked correctly.
I found tasks like this very useful as it helps you learn the structure and content through applying it to questions you may get in the exam.
I have created a worksheet which goes into:
Why do people join (specific types),
theoretical explanations of deviant subcultures (Marxism, interactionism, functionalism, feminism)
why certain Identities join deviant subcultures (class,ethnicity,gender)
patterns and trends
this is useful to look over, edit and complete yourself or to just write down over and over until you are able to learn it .
I have created this table which discusses the different theorists in relation to: defining globalisation and how it affects identity, relationships,culture conflict and change and social inequality.
i have colour coordinated these sections so it will be easier to remember and is almost everything you will need to know for sociology unit 3 section A.
definitions of debates
examples of two core studies that support this debate
strengths and weaknesses of the debate
I created this resource to be able so simply understand everything you need to know about debates in the specification. hopefully this is useful to others.
