A wordsort is a research and organizational technique. This literacy building strategy begins with the reading of content (link included) about social theory. After reading, students need to choose 9 terms or phrases to describe 4 social theories to demonstrate an understanding of the content. They use what they know and the content to organization information from general to specific. The activity ends with students documenting their learning by recording their choices on a pre-designed template (also included) and responding to a writing prompt. Great material for formative assessment.
This is a great two day lesson and it also includes a brief video concerning the study of sociology. Answers will be different for each student so an answer key is not part of this package.
