    Ok let's all just realise unit 1's ageing population question was a tad...sh1t but unit 2 is 60% so let's do this!

    I need help with research methods. I hardly have any info on it! The AQA endorsed book for research methods isn't very helpful tbh.

    Any help or info would be great. Also what do you think is likely to come up this year? Gender was last year!

    someone i know uses this when writing an essay on methods. i find it a useful structure: PERVERT and DIPCARD

    Practical issues

    Ethical Issues (DIPCARD)
    Reliability
    Validity
    Example
    Representativeness
    Theoretical issues (approach)

    Ethics:
    Deception
    Informed Consent
    Protection from harm
    Confidentiality
    Animals if used (mostly a psych thing)
    Right to withdraw
    Debrief

    hope this helps

    Going over Education now. Still need to go over Gender Subject Choice, and How Gender Identity is reinforced in Education, as well as Social Class and Ethnicity differences in education then I should be done. Too many authors isn't the word any more...

    Really? That definition was in the AQA endorsed book. I found the ageing population question annoying and the oppression towards women question so so so horrible. I got down abuse and thats it :/ think I might've written how women have no control cos radical feminists think family is patriarchal and not fair. Don't think I'd get the mark for that one tbh!!!

    What did u write?

    Ageing population I wrote shortage in health services but forgot to write nhs how stupid of me! Wrote how there r more extended and beanpole families etc

    I doubt gender will come up. I really hope social policy does come up like marketisation or butler act etc.

    How do you find research methods? It's so difficult, 20 marks on a possible research method relating to education or one just research method ahh!!!

    I knew I didn't get the beanpole family question right

    I spoke about domestic violence and I spoke about how women have to do the expressive role and homemaking

    Symmetrical family
    I spoke about joint conjugal roles
    Young and willmotts march of progress view
    And that's all only 2 points

    Divorce was pretty okay! I spoke about secularisation, changes in law, feminism, attitudes towards marriage

    Ageing population was so bad--- I spoke about more jobs for people, higher taxes and I used the "positive opportunities" which was on the item

    I know what you mean btw i think you're referring to Methods in Context. Thats where you relate methods to education.

    Research methods itself you dont have to apply it education, yeah you can mention studies obviously will gain marks etc. So dont worry to much.

    Yeah sorry I meant methods in context I find those so tricky! Also, the research methods are you gonna learn the advantages and disadvantages of each method parrot fashion like word by word? Cos I'm confused between ethnographic and triangulation...don't they both use lots of methods?

    I think, it will be either class or ethnic differences
    and field or lab experiments for the methods.
