We've just had a similar one on Functionalist views

Introduction is giving a very brief overview of the marxist view, with one sentence at the end saying 'However, other sociologists criticise this view as they argue that... '

Then I am assuming you've got notes on different Marxist sociologists? It's basically just a paragraph on each sociologist using this formula:
Point
Evidence
Evaluate the view
Link back to question.

Then a conclusion summing up what has been said in the essay

Thanks, and if you don't mind how would I link it back to the question (you can use an example of functionalist views if you want)

Just put a sentence at the end after you evaluation saying 'and this is why the functionalist/marxist perspective on religion is a flawed/good explanation'
