This is one of twelve lessons comprising the 'Introduction Unit' for the new GCSE Sociology specifications (suitable for AQA, & WJEC/EDUQAS).
You can buy my complete KS4 Sociology units, ready to download on Tes: https://goo.gl/NfTNky
The linked units should also be of interest to those in the US who teach: civics, world history, social sciences, psychology and sociology.
This is the fifth lesson, it focusses on the functionalist sociological perspective.
This download includes:
-A detailed lesson plan: highlighting differentiation, AfL, key-words, SMSC and a timeline of learning activities (.pdf)
-A premium quality PowerPoint presentation (fully animated) that covers the entire lesson.
-An A4 Worksheet (double-sided)
All lessons are professionally 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.
