LESSON PLANS BY LESLEY CLARK
Sociology teachers and students have relied on Sociology Themes and Perspectives for over twenty years. The coverage of theories and research in each subsequent edition has been unrivalled for accuracy and detail. These lesson plans aim to provide guidance on using the sixth edition of Sociology Themes and Perspectives in a teaching context by offering practical classroom support for teachers. Three lesson plans are provided for each chapter. One of these is a glossary exercise that will help students come to terms with the conceptual base of the subject and allow them to build a running dictionary of sociology. The other two lessons focus on issues central to AS- and A-level specifications in that area and aim to help students develop the range of skills required for success. Many of the lesson plans require preparatory reading that could be set as homework before the lesson. Teachers’ notes are provided for each lesson plan. These notes include guidance for lesson aims, the resources and time needed and the appropriate Introduction Sociological perspectives page references from Sociology Themes and Chapter 1 Social stratification Perspectives.
