About this event
The AQA A Level Sociology Strong Foundations exam workshop focuses on helping students develop the skills they need to succeed in the AQA Sociology exams in 2019.
The session outline for Strong Foundations AQA A Level Sociology 2019 is below:
Session 1: Education, Education, Education.
In this session, we will look back over the Education topic, review learning from the first year of A Levels and explore the skills and structure Year 13 students need to practice for a 30-mark essay.
Session 2: Mastering Methods in Context
Next we will revisit students’ learning of research methods and look in detail at how best to approach Methods in Context questions. We’ll explain the skills required to write the best answers to them and provide insights into how these questions are marked which Year 13 students can then practice in the months ahead!
Session 3: Skills School
Along with subject knowledge, exam skills are the foundation of exam success and this session will develop and test students’ skills in all three. We’ll remind students on what the skills are, practice how to recognise them, develop them and exhibit them.
Session 4: All very well in theory!
In this highly interactive and energetic afternoon session, we will take a whistle-stop tour through a wide range of content with a particular focus on sociological theory (both in relation to theory questions and how they are applied to both core and optional topics). There will also be an activity exploring whether sociology is a science.
A place at this event costs £25+VAT for the day of tuition. This includes a comprehensive workshop booklet which also includes follow-up revision materials. For every 10 student places you book, a teacher can go free.
