Functionalism
* Durkheim
* Murdoch
* Parsons
* Davis and Moore (Education - role allocation)

Marxism
* Althusser
* Engels
* Paul Willis (Education - 'Learning To Labour')

Feminism
* Ann Oakley (Gender Roles)
* Boulton (Housework)

New Right

* Becker (Education - ideal student)
(as far as I am aware, there isn't a 'key thinker' as such for this theory)

For Interactionism there is a key thinker, its Hargreaves, he is really important in the labelling section, so make sure you mention him =))
