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 x lesson bundle.
This is lesson 15 of our 20 lesson course for the 'Sociology of Education' section.
This lesson critically compares education system around the world and asks students to focus on education in: Japan, Finland, S.Korea and the USA. This lesson is useful in contributing to the 'factors affecting attainment' aspect of the unit: casting light on the impact of cultural values, parental attitudes, and expectations on attainment.
The download features a .zip file which includes:
-A detailed lesson plan: highlighting differentiation, AfL, key-words, SMSC and a timeline of learning activities (.pdf)
-A PowerPoint Presentation covering the whole lesson
-A double-sided colour A3 worksheet
All lessons are designed around the new GCSE specification, certainly useful for any GCSE specification however. We take considerable time making the highest quality lessons, positive reviews are greatly appreciated.
