    My teacher thinks quantitative methods will come up, she's an OCR examiner and also writes some of the OCR revision books. I've done a practice question on quantitative methods and used the pervert scale to answer it. If anyone wants a copy I can send it to them but I'm not sure how many marks it would get.
    Can I have a copy of your answer please I need help answering it

    I've just done this question 'Explain and briefly evaluate the importance of peers in the creation and reinforcement of ethnic identities (24 Marks)' but I don't think I've done it right because it seems too short. Could anyone please do me a massive favour and read it and see where I'm going wrong?
    This is my essay

    Ethnicity defines those individuals who share common cultural characteristics that set them apart to other social groups in a society. Their cultural behaviour is usually distinctively different to that of other social groups. DEFINE IDENTITY. WHAT ARE PEERS? WHEN DO PEOPLE MEET THEIR PEERS (at the stage of secondary socialisation)
    One way in which peer groups may shape the formation of ethnic identity is by an individuals need to win the approval of peers. People want to ‘fit in’ and therefore in order to do this they conform to peer group pressure. If an individual wanted to join a Catholic group of people they might have to dress in a certain way or behave in a certain way, e.g wearing the cross and going to church, to win the approval of the group. Thus they therefore adopt the norms of the group. Failure to conform to the group norms can lead to rejection and isolation, which few people want to experience. Therefore peers create new ethnic identities for people that they can choose to conform to or ultimately be isolated from the group.
    Another way in which peer pressure may shape the formation of ethnic identity is through membership of youth subcultures. Tony Sewell argues that peer pressure is extremely influential in shaping ethnic identity among disaffected African-Caribbean youth in British inner cities. He argues that African-Carribean male identity is focused on being a ‘hyper-male’ and ‘gangsta’ in the eyes of their peers, and this often compensates for the lack of a father figure in the lives of many of these teenagers.
    Peers may also shape ethnic identity by providing a form of resistance to racism. Jacobson argues that many young Pakistanis are adopting an Islamic identity in terms of diet, dress and everyday routines and practices. She suggest that this is essentially a defensive identity that has developed as a response to racism and social exclusion. Islamic identity compensates for such marginalisation because it stresses the exclusion of the white excluders by the excluded.
    However, not all peer groups help shape a particular ethnic identity. Les Back found the emergence of new identities among peer groups based on ‘cultural borrowing’. He found that some young white people were being attracted to aspects of black culture, and both black and white youths has developed a sort of shared identity based on mixed ethnicity.


    Thank you!
    Good attempt, I would write about cultural comfort zones; Individuals hang around with people of their same ethnicity as they feel more comfortable
    For the conclusion you could write:
    It is difficult to measure the effect on peers in forming an individuals ethnic identity. Other agents of socialisation such as peers, workplace, religion, education and media also have an influence on ethnic identities.

    • Outline and explain two ways in which education socialises individuals. (pg 18+38)
    • Outline and explain two ways through which individuals experience social control. (pg 25+26)

    Question 3 (24 marks)-
    • Explain and briefly evaluate the view that ethnicity is the most important source of an individual’s identity. (pg 56-65)
    • Explain and briefly evaluate the role of the peer group in creating and reinforcing ethnic identities. (pgs 56-65)
    • Explain and briefly evaluate the role of the family in creating and reinforcing ethnic identity. (pgs 56-65)
    • Explain and briefly evaluate the view that age is the most important source of an individual’s identity. (pgs 66-72)

    Question 4 (52 marks)-

    • Using the pre-release material and your wider sociological knowledge, explain and evaluate the use of mixed methods in researching the importance of integrative play. (pgs 98-102)
    • Using the pre-release material and your wider sociological knowledge, explain and evaluate the use of quantitative data collection methods in researching the importance of integrative play. (pgs 79-89)

    You need to include three knowledge points in every paragraph. It doesn't have to be studies, it could be theory's, concepts or contemporary examples too

    So what would be the knowledge/starting points for a question on 'Explain and briefly evaluate, the role of education in creating and reinforcing ethnic identity'? So far I've got, one way is through formal curriculum and another is informal curriculum and the studies I have used for these two point are mason, johal and bains, wright et al and sewell. What other starting point could I use?

    "Explain and briefly evaluate the view that ethnicity is the most important source of an individual’s identity (24 marks)
    Modood (2005) describes ethnicity as involving a number of factors including culture, descent and a sense of identity. Culture includes a shared language, shared food, religion, values and tradition. Banton (2000) writes that in the contemporary UK ethnicity is becoming increasingly recognised as something everyone has, especially as questions about it are now included in the census and are regularly found on official forms.
    Ethnicity is created and reinforced through the different agents of socialisation. The family socialises individuals into their ethnic identities through primary socialisation (from the ages of 0-5). Singh Ghumann found that the first generation of Asian parents who arrived in the UK in the 1950s and 60s were concered to transmit key values to their children. These values included being respectful of and loyalty to their elders and wider community; the role of the mother tongue was crucial in maintaining generational links; parents were thought to know best the interests of their children and the choice of marriage partner was left to the parents; and social conformity was demanded. “izzat” meaning family honour was also enforced and these key values are still important among the Asian community today. These key values are an important source of identity as they are present within everyday life.
    Ethnicity is the most important source of an individual’s identity as it affects everyday life and impacts the decision’s that individual’s make. Jacobson (1997) found that young Pakistanis see Islam as crucial in forming their identity. It affects their diet, dress and general behaviour. There has been a blurring of the distinction between religion and ethnicity. "

    Is this okay so far?

    The two starting points are fine And both the informal and formal curriculum count as concepts. For the informal curriculum I've written about teachers acting as role models and positive and negative sanctions. For the formal curriculum Ive written about learning essential norms and values. And I've included Gilburn as a study 😊
