Nope, you got to do all four questions.

We're just getting started on it right now. Learning about the Nuclear Family.

Im assuming that the 17 marker will be like the 16 marker in G671 and the 33 marker will be like the 24 marker in G671.

You'll have to put more concepts, studies, theories and examples in the questions though i think.

Hi
can someone tell me how i can structure the 33 marker?!
Introduction:
  • Define key terms in question. For example if it mentions about family diversity, define what family diversity is (I would use the Rapoports and give two brief examples from their six different types)
  • Statistics. Again, as an example, if it was asking about family diversity then I'd give a few statistics on different family types that show family diversity
  • Perspectives, sociologists you'll be using in your essay


I would do at least three paragraphs for your strongest side of the argument, and then one bulky (or two smaller paragraphs) evaluating. So,

1. Paragraph on a perspective for/against the question (depending on which side of the argument you're going to be writing the most about)

2. Paragraph on a perspective for/against

3. Paragraph on sociologists for/against

4. Paragraph against the first three paragraphs using either perspectives or sociologists

Your evaluative paragraph refers directly to the perspectives and sociologists you've used in your main argument e.g. "Sociologist A disagrees with sociologist B on their view/findings that...because they found/think..."

Conclusion:
  • Which argument is "true"
  • How other social factors such as ethnicity, age, gender, social class have an impact on what's being asked in the question
  • For example, if the question is something like "Outline and evaluate the view that family diversity is a problem", in your conclusion you'd want to add that perhaps certain "problems" in families such as single parent families depends on the ethnicity of that particular family. You can use a sociologist to back this up. If this was a question I got I'd use Wilson who said black single parent families are more likely to depend on benefits (a problem the New Right put forward about single parent families as a whole) than live with a partner


ALTERNATIVELY your structure could go along the lines of:
  • Introduction
  • Paragraph for/against the question
  • Short evaluation of this paragraph
  • Paragraph for/against
  • Short evaluation
  • Paragraph for/against
  • Short evaluation
  • Conclusion


I personally prefer the first structure. My teacher said that the "outline" section of your essay should be 2/3rds (outline is basically your strongest argument) and the "evaluation" section should be 1/3rd. I hope this helps and good luck with revision!
