This bundle contains 12 fully resourced lessons designed to introduce KS4 Sociology. It is designed for the new British GCSE Sociology specification. It is relevant to all teachers of Sociology working with students aged 14-18.

Whilst it is useful to any teacher of Sociology, it was designed for the new AQA Sociology GCSE specification (8192) taught from September 2017. Released in late 2017, I am quietly confident that these are the best KS4 Sociology teaching resources that money can buy: I really hope you will leave a positive review so that others can be made aware of their quality.

The bundle is designed to be a self-contained, comprehensive and complete resource: everything a teacher/department needs to introduce the course. Whilst covering the content and teaching, this bundle does not include assessment materials.

Each lesson contains a PowerPoint and lesson plan; most of the lessons feature worksheets as well. Each lesson is listed for sale on TpT for $6.99 making the bundle excellent value.

Lessons Included:

1 - Introduction to Sociology [view]

2 - The Central Debates of Sociology[view]

3- Socialisation, Norms & Values [view]

All lessons are designed around the new British AQA GCSE specification, we take considerable time making the highest quality lessons. They are the highest rated GCSE Sociology resources on Tes, now available on TpT!

A note to buyers in the US and around the world: these resources use British English spelling and are made for UK KS4 (GCSE) exam specifications. They are made with UK based teachers in mind: statistical references tend to refer to British & US data. They are, nonetheless, useful to Sociology teachers in the US and around the world.
