About this event

WORKSHOP PROGRAMME

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 2020

As a guide to this year's workshop, the session outline for Strong Foundations AQA A Level Sociology 2018 was as follows:

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.

Course package
