Sorry I can’t be in today as I’m not feeling too good. Here are some instructions for today and holidays. If you have a class help yourself to chocolate buttons in my second draw !
12B can you complete your presentations on Critical Theories and share them with me so I can keep them/put them on the blog.
Year 12 in general two tasks for over the Easter Hols
- Find essays that were under target since September and repeat them using my feedback
- Learn the researchers for Education using the research summaries document in your education revision guides, ready for a little test when we come back.
13D Complete an essay plan with AO1, AO2 and AO3 for the following question ‘Evaluate explanations of Social Class inequality’ (40) This is a broad question that can be answered using different perspectives, here is a rough outline:
Intro summarise briefly Functionalist, Marxist and Weberian views on inequality
Par 1 Functionalism – Explain functionality of inequality, meritocracy and role allocation (maybe underclass theory as well) – Evaluate
Par 2 Marxism – Explain traditional views on the exploitation of the proletariat leading to conflict. Maybe Reserve Army of Labour – Evaluate
Par 3 Neo-Marxism – Althusser /Gramsci and ideological control and/or Bourdieu and cultural, social capital – Evaluate.
Par 4 Weber Inequality through statuses e.g embourgeoisiement of white collar intelligentsia, market situation, dual labour market.
Conclusion discuss changes in classes e.g BBC new system include proletarianisation and deskilling and briefly summarise your argument with which explanation is best.
Year 13 in general
Please complete all the remaining revision essays on your assessment schedule over the hols this will be a good way to structure your revision as there is one for each component. Remember to use my revision guides for help with essays and past questions etc. The Easter holidays is a very important time for you to get stuck in to revision.
Have a good Easter everyone!
