This revision guide on Global Development takes each point from the AQA A Level Sociology specification and breaks it down into sections. Each section makes a clear link to the specification, provides a checklist of what needs to be known and then explains key content, using both classic and some more contemporary studies and examples. The sections are:
• Measuring Development
• Theories of development, underdevelopment and global inequality
• TNCs, NGOs and international agencies
• Aid and Trade
• Industrialisation, urbanisation & employment
• The Environment
• War & Conflict
• Health & Education
• Demographic Change
• Outline & Explain questions
Each section includes regular evaluation of theories, studies or perspectives. This is written in the explicit and developed way that students would need to try to emulate in the exam. Each section concludes with a list of possible exam questions along with expert examiner hints. While potential questions are endless (especially in relation to specific wording and the items) all the types of questions that could be asked are included, providing opportunity to write about all the core content. There is a separate section specifically for the “outline and explain” 10 mark questions because, for Paper 2 Topics in Sociology, these always involve applying knowledge from one area of the subject to another and therefore the questions do not clearly belong in any one section.
It is important to remember that in sociology you are encouraged to apply themes, knowledge and analysis across topic areas, including between different substantive topics. When attempting questions from one section, you should always be aware that you can and should use information from other sections. Two key features of this revision guide help to facilitate this synoptic approach. These are:
MAKING THE LINK: where a connection between content in this module and that of another is explicitly explored.
LINKS TO CORE THEMES: where AQA’s core themes of socialisation, culture and identity, social differentiation and power and stratification are applied to each area of the specification.
