Product Description
This bundle contains 20 fully resourced lessons for the 'Crime & Deviance' section of 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 teach the Crime & Deviance section of 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. Unlike the separately listed lessons: the PowerPoints in this download are fully editable.

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.
