    In our school, this is how teachers instruct us for 4/5 markers.

    4 markers: We use the structure DEEC.
    D- Describe
    E- Explain
    E- Example
    C- Compare or Criticise.

    5 markers: DE.
    D- Describe (2)
    E- Explain 3 individual points or 2 points with an explanation.(3)

    Thank you so much!

    in our school we were taught DESI
    Describe
    Explain
    Social Impact
    Individual Impact

    but my teacher said that this does not work for most 4 markers

    My teacher taught my class that if it is something like a describe question, you would :

    Describe and talk about it a little (2 mark)
    Explain more in depth (3)

    If you have a scenario above it, then you link back for that last mark.

    Also, you can just link to a keyword or a concept for a mark during the explaining bit and explain that (E.g. Talk about labelling and the halo effect and self-fulfilling prophecy)

    By the way, any tips on 12 markers on Unit 2?

    for unit 1 i ws wondering what key words we should all learn? Ones that are potential 4 markers?
    i think you should go on the AQA glossary for sociology keywords and just memorise them
