Professionally designed for the new AQA Sociology GCSE specification (8192) taught from September 2017. It can be purchased as a part of a complete 20-lesson bundle on TpT.
This is lesson 10 of our 20 lesson course for the 'Sociology of Family' section.
This lesson covers the 'criticisms of the family' section of the specification. It covers the main criticisms of the family: families (isolation and unrealistic idealisation, loss of traditional functions, lack of contact with wider kinship networks, the status and role of women within families, marital breakdown, dysfunctional families)
The next lesson (11/20) focusses on the work of sociologists Zaretsky and Delphy and Leonard (and their criticisms of the family).
The download includes:
-A detailed lesson plan: highlighting differentiation, AfL, key-words, SMSC and a timeline of learning activities (.pdf)
-A premium quality PowerPoint presentation covering the whole lesson
-8 x A3 Discussion/Debate Group Worksheets
All lessons are designed around the new AQA GCSE specification, we take considerable time making the highest quality lessons.
