While you're waiting for an answer, did you know we have 300,000 study resources that could answer your question in TSR's Learn together section?

If you're stuck on how to get started, try creating some resources. It's free to do and can help breakdown tough topics into manageable chunks. Get creating now.
Not sure what all of this is about? Head here to find out more.
1. Find a sociologist that criticises the theory
2. Use different theories to criticise the theory eg. A marxist would disagree with a functionalist that crime provides positive functions.
Ao2 is about creating a debate rather than just using your knowledge from the textbook, if you're only talking about concepts and how they work you will only gain ao1 marks.
As for the structure well this depends on how many marks the essay is worth.
For 33 marks you need an introduction that outlines the debate clearly then each point should focus on one theory then criticise at the end for your ao2. You must include a conclusion, this is imperative at A2 because it shows you have fully answered the question. Remember to link back to the question in every paragraph. This way you will gain all marks. Good luck
