In our taster lessons I often put up some current news article or a point of debate, like 'Do you agree that benefits are too high?' and then link to different resources, such as the government's visual on welfare spending https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/governmentpublicsectorandtaxes/publicsectorfinance/articles/howisthewelfarebudgetspent/2016-03-16
Could be a useful way to get their attention? Similar ones I use are 'do you agree your exam results are purely down to you?' followed by stats on exclusion by ethnicity, or free school meals. Then they're encouraged to think about our society's assumptions/accepted media narratives, and maybe see how sociology starts to expand their understanding a bit. Also shows those who are completely disengaged from having political opinions that they may not enjoy it much!!
