    I am in year 12 and currently studying AS Sociology. I have been set a 20 mark exam question on education to do over easter and have been finding the structure and what to included difficult!
    This question is:

    Applying material from item A and elsewhere, evaluate sociological explanations for social class inequality in education
    Item A basically mentions in-school factors, and material and cultural factors at home.

    I understand the actual information I am just a little unsure on the AO2 part? Do i use direct criticisms e.g. criticize teacher-labelling, marketization ect. or do I criticize by mentioning gender and ethnicity?

    I would guess that you have to evaluate labelling and marketisation in relation to gender, ethnicity and social class.
    But seeing as it mentions social class directly in the question, then criticise the concepts in relation to social class.

    Thats what I'd do and I took the education exam last year.
    Don't know if thats any help

    Is this a 10 mark question? If so you can write about any of the following:

    External factors:
    Material deprivation
    Cultural deprivation

    Internal factors
    Labelling
    Subcultures
    Cream skimming and silt shifting

    I would normally do two paragraphs and structure them how you would in a main body paragraph in a 30 marker. I would talk about the theory and at the end of the paragraph I'd do two criticisms of it.

    Hope that's helped😊
