    So for the education question if you look every other year so far they have alternated it from sociological views on the role of education to reasons for underachievement of a certain group, last year is was a sociological view one, i think it was functionalists, so i think that it will be something like reasons for ethnic differences in achievement or gender ext
    so for that would you do internal and external factors?? what else??

    Yeah so if it asks something like, asses the contribution of internal factors to differences in ethnic achievement, you would do a quick intro about what ethnic groups do best and worst, then the rest of the answer should be internal vs external. So for internal you would mention, teacher labelling and racism, institutional racism, pupil responses and subcultures and selection- maybe mention a-c economy. Then do external so cultural deprivation, material deprivation and racism in wider society. But remember to focus more on the one it asks for so internal or external.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to structure the 20 markers on the RM section... We've done very little class work on research methods so I'm panicking. :confused:

    I'm fine on the practical, ethical and theoretical issues for research methods but I'm having some real difficulty finding appropriate education-based studies for each research method for the MiC part, does anyone know where I can find a concise list/a few examples? PLEASE HELP, this is really worrying me right now.
    If you have the orange and white aqa text book there are little blue boxes with the studies in on random pages, so just flick through

    I'm trying to do the same right now, let me know what you find. i have just made a quick mindmap and so far have :

    EXPERIMENTS: Rosenthal and Jacobson- Pygmalion in the classroom (labelling and self fulfilling prophesy study)

    QUESTIONNAIRES: Rutter- finding link between achievement, attendance and behavior

    INTERVIEWS: Willis- learning to labour (12 lads from school to workplace) group interviews, combined with participant observation method

    PARTICIPANT OBSERVATION: Flanders- created the 'Flanders system of interaction analysis categories'- a structured method to find out how much time was taken up in class by different actions e.g teach talk 68% class time. &&& King : tried to blend into the classroom and hide in the wendyhouse to avoid hawthorne effect.

    OFFICIAL STATISTICS: I don't really know this one, but know that LEAs, OFSTED and Department for Children Schools and Families all use and produce them.

    DOCUMENTS: Gewirtz- brochures assessed to study marketisation , Gillborn- racism research-studied school policy and meeting minutes. Lobban- content analysis of gender roles in reading schemes.

    Hope this helps Let me know if anyone finds one for statistics
    Would I be able to use those for the research methods questions as well as for MiC or would it be advisable to have different studies prepared for both?

    We use P.E.R.V.E.R.T for research method essays:

    -Practical Issues - Time, Cost, Access etc
    - Ethical Issues - Informed Consent, are children involved etc..
    - Reliability
    - Validity
    - Example - not too sure on this one, i think you make up a situation where the method would be good?
    - Representativeness
    - Theoretical Issues - Positivist/Interpretivist view

    So what are everyone's general predictions for tomorrow for education and research?
    I'm thinking policies/processes within school, maybe Marxism for 12 marker?
    Dunno about research, postal questionnaires haven't been up a lot.

    Does anyone know what functions are performed by the education system?
    Funcationalists, such as parsons see it as a bridge between the family and society
    New right see it as the same but they think that the current system isn't working they want to marketise it and Marxists such as Althusser see it as a way of producing good workers for the capitalist system and for legitimising inequality

    What sort of thing would it ask about Marxism? Would it be what they see the role of education as? ( Ideological state apparatus, correspondence principle , myth of meritocracy etc? )

    How do you answer 12 mark questions?
    3 paragraphs, just basically answer the questions, don't write more than a page, you will end up running out of time
