Intro- Define key terms,basically repeat the question and mention points that you will mention
Paragraph 1- Supporting the question
Paragraph 2- Not support the question
Conclusion- Answer the question

To get extra marks
-Mention background research not learnt in class
-Mention plenty of sociologists
-Keep it consise
-ALWAYS define key terms

My teacher told me this.

PS. this is for AQA Unit 1 and 2 20/24 mark questions which are basically essays

First of all, thanks for replying, its appreciated

Secondly, do i really only need two paragraphs of information?! :eek:

So in other words I just need to make a point, then expand on it a little, give a criticism and link it back or something like that?

I still dont get it Ive been getting E's purely because i dont know how to structure the essay I get everything right like the 6 markers its just the essays which are the problem (

Yes, two paragraphs is good. Or you could split it up into 4. Just make sure you have equal amount of paragraphs that support and do not support the question.

Yes! thats exactly what you need to do, also make sure you do background research to make your work more origional.

Loads of people get E's, its just the start of the year. Make sure that you ask your teacher how to improve

Intro - define the term i.e divorce is...

p1/p2/p2 - a point that either supports/critises the question in hand. Remember to use the PEEEL structure (point, explain, evidence - Either using supporting evidence or conflicting evidence to the point made earlier , evaluate - evaluate the piece of evidence , link back to the question)

conclusion - After making three paragraphs ( or however many depending on your writing style) draw a conclusion. Ensure you LINK back all earlier points made and make a summary which is justified and include your personal opinion.
