Uploaded a file called A practical/fun introduction to sociological theory

This is still a work in progress so feedback and ideas welcome. I split the group into four tables - workers, consumers, owners and shareholders. The workers are ideally a table of just females but it can still work if this is not possible. The owners and shareholders predominantly male. The consumers (Functionalists) are given some pretend currency with which to buy the produce from the workers (Marxists/Feminists) (the workers have to sort the smarties or skittles into colour groups before they can sell them). The owners (New Right) come and collect the profits from the workers and then have to choose how much to pay them, how much to keep and what dividend to pay to the shareholders. The shareholders (can use a number of perspectives here - NR, Interactionist or Postmodern) are tasked with keeping the workers busy and streamlining production through targets and sacking workers. It works on the basis of a lot of direction from the teacher and 'freezing' the game where necessary. I will upload further resources as I develop them or feel free to add!.

Commented on Recreating Newspaper task- Selection and Presentation of news

This is a consilidation lesson after students have studied the sociological theory on the selction and presentation of the news. It fits well with Haralambos 8th edition as well as Chris Livesey Cambridge international AS and A Level text book. It is my first time of trying after I had a success with the same group with recreating Social Policy task last year.

Uploaded a file called Mass Media SCLY3 Mccann revision task

This is a task designed to utilise the huge range of media material available on the Madeleine McCann case to enable students to produce a case study that links to every section of Mass Media. Hopefully to act as a stimulus revision tool. Best used in conjunction with the mccannfiles website.

Commented on SCLY1 famillies & households booklet FULL

I have finally created a full booklet to cover all of famillies and households. Its includes tasks, past paper questions, key word lists, information, useful websites for students and a progress tracking sheet. Lots of resources inside the booklet were taken from Soc exchange so credit to those people whose work I have included.Just felt like there was a real absence of a whole booklet! Hope you like it, any (constructive) feedback would be appreciated :)
