I have been studying Sociology Unit 1 today for 5 hours and I only managed to answer 1 question as I am completely not with it today.
I left school 3 years ago and I have no idea where to start in answering the questions using exam techniques. Please help!
For example, the question was:
Question 1: Identify 2 ways in which mass culture differs from folk culture apart from those refered to in Item 1A. (4 Marks)
And I replied with:
Mass culture is considered to be undemanding and easy to understand entertainment, which is aimed at the masses of ordinary people and is
manufactured by businesses for profit. Mass culture contains commercialized, mass produced, standardized and short lived products which is made
to produce money for large corporations. Mass culture includes tabloid newspapers, pop music and reality TV and soaps unlike Folk which focuses on individualized entertainment.
I feel I am completely wrong and I am freaking out as it's only the first question out of 4 Units!
Can someone help me please?
