Global Politics: The International Criminal Court

Global Politics: The International Criminal Court

(0)
This is two hours worth of structured work designed to get students to understand how the ICC works and to analyse it’s effectiveness from a number of perspectives. Videos are in the comments section of the notes. I supplement this with Heywood, but no textbook is necessary for this lesson or the activities contained within.

What is Archaeology - Intro lesson

What is Archaeology - Intro lesson

(0)
I took a resource from here and made it into a coherent lesson. The videos are in the notes , thought they aren’t be any means essential. This is pretty simple. I would use this at the start of Yr 7, but could probably be used at KS2.
The Cold War: Introduction
uncleliamuncleliam

The Cold War: Introduction

(0)
This lesson introduces the key concepts of The Cold War through the Chess match between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky. Activities are integrated into the PPT and on seperate sheets. Cut the Capitalism and Communism sheet in half. The song is “Rook House for Bobby” by I Like Trains. Anyone who likes getting relatively obscure independent post rock bands into their lessons should definitely enjoy this. THE LINK ON THE SECOND SLIDE OF THE PPT IS DEAD NEW LINK https://youtu.be/l0Epi-5pLT4
Sociology and Social Policy
uncleliamuncleliam

Sociology and Social Policy

(1)
This is suitable for AQA A2 Sociology and CIE AS Sociology. The powerpoint is adapted from something I found and updated to include some mention of Trump and Theresa May and generally make it more accessible to A-Level students. Some knowledge from the teaching perspective about various things is assumed. This is predominantly designed to work in a UK school but should be accessible around the world.
Public and Personal Documents

Public and Personal Documents

(0)
A 4 page booklet on Public and Personal Documents, plus a little advantage and disadvantage sheet. Easy to follow. Takes one lesson, maybe longer.
Official Statistics- Sociology
uncleliamuncleliam

Official Statistics- Sociology

(0)
This is a collection of resources and activities to help get through Official Statistics. Should work for any curriculum and lead to some relatively interesting discussions. Change the postcode on the research task to areas you are familiar with.
Global Politics Literacy Mat
uncleliamuncleliam

Global Politics Literacy Mat

(0)
This is a literacy mat I used in my IB Global Politics class where most students are EAL. It contains key spelling, command words, useful connectives, key terminology etc. Print it off, laminate it and leave it on the desks. Can also be used as a display if you so wish. Designed with IB in mind but certainly transferable to other curricula.
Observations- Sociology
uncleliamuncleliam

Observations- Sociology

(0)
Again, just some basic resources for Non-Participant and Participant Observation. No PPT but you can easily work through the tasks. Pretty self-explanatory. On Observation techniques the 2nd task has a table to complete it on the 2nd page.
GCSE Sociology- Feminism and the Family
uncleliamuncleliam

GCSE Sociology- Feminism and the Family

(2)
I have adapted some resources here. Start the lesson by giving out the article and getting students to highlight specific examples of sexism in the family. The PPT has numerous images to start with to discuss. There is a sheet on the PPT which will need printing off, it's the one about how liberal feminists can achieve their aims. Some students might need directing on that. And then there's a worksheet to go through. Students will need knowledge of Murdocks 4 functions in order to complete.
Moral Panics
uncleliamuncleliam

Moral Panics

(0)
Just some straightforward tasks on Moral Panics. Predominantly for A-Level but would easily work for GCSE
Longitudinal Studies
uncleliamuncleliam

Longitudinal Studies

(0)
A collection of resources to help teach Longitudinal Studies. This was inspired by a particularly tricky CIE AS Sociology question a few years ago. You will need access to the UP Series, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0l541FH_W0TPrwYHx7P7M-XhNzLN4uUb
Sampling
uncleliamuncleliam

Sampling

(0)
We all know that Sampling is one of the most boring topics on any Sociology syllabus. Here are all the resources you’ll probably need to get through it at any post-16 course. It’s a dry topic but this covers all the bases I should think. All of it is pretty self-explanatory and tasks do lend themselves to linking to Methods in Context.
Experiments- Sociology
uncleliamuncleliam

Experiments- Sociology

(0)
Just some resources for AS Level Sociology on types of Experiments. Use in conjuction with the Reliable-Valid worksheet I uploaded. Simple, but effective. Enough to get some good discussions out of the class. No PPT. I never bothered with a PPT for this topic. I used videos of Milgram, Jane Elliot, Stamford Prison Experiment and Bandura’s Bobo Doll.
The Race For Space
uncleliamuncleliam

The Race For Space

(0)
This looks at the early part of the Space Race. The links to the YouTube clips on the presentation are in the notes section. It’s pretty straightforward with discussion questions and written questions to complete. Perhaps use the Public Service Broadcasting song “Sputnik” as a starter.
Global Politics: Fukuyama and Huntingdon
uncleliamuncleliam

Global Politics: Fukuyama and Huntingdon

(0)
This is lesson which develops knowledge of the Post Cold War order by comparing Fukuyama and Huntingdon. Discussion based PPT and several tasks to complete in the booklet. Should take about two hours to complete. I used these as supplementary reading: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/04/opinion/04brooks.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2015/06/24/how-the-two-big-ideas-of-the-post-cold-war-era-failed/?utm_term=.842d3426dede https://www.theguardian.com/world/2001/oct/21/afghanistan.religion2 https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/09/03/francis-fukuyama-postpones-the-end-of-history https://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/mar/21/bring-back-ideology-fukuyama-end-history-25-years-on
