What's new man and Polygamy/Monogamy?
New man - man that treats women as equal/shares conjugal roles/shows emotion/rejects traditional male role and supports equality etc

Polygamy - the legal practice of having more than one spouse at the same time

Monogamy - the legal practice of only having one spouse at one time

Also, since it's under this topic:

Serial monogamy - having many monogamous relationships (marrying, then divorce, then marrying again etc...)

Bigamy - the offence of having more than one spouse at the same time in a monogamous society

Polyandry - a woman having more than one husband

Polygyny - a man having more than one wife

Hope that helps

Thank you. I was not told any of this by my teacher, that's why I'm so worried now.

Hey!
So political socialisation basically refers to how different factors in society contribute to making young people aware of political issues. For example:
Schools - Students are taught about their rights in a democratic society. Within PSHE and Citizenship lessons they learn about Human rights and Children’s rights. They learn that if they are unhappy with certain policies they can protest, write to their MP etc. Within PSHE and Citizenship they also learn about the political system in the UK as well as the different parties that exist in the UK such as Labour, Conservative, Liberal democrats etc. In these lessons they are also told how they go about voting and why it is important to be involved with the process.
Family - Parents can include their children in discussions about politics eg. debates across the dinner table. Statistics show that 3 in 4 children vote for the same party as their parents when they reach the legal age to vote.

I'm not really sure about the exact layout of the question about grammar schools, but they may ask you to talk about the way they work; so you might need to make sure that you know the definition of a grammar school thoroughly, the advantages, and the disadvantages. The reason why a lot of people reckon that grammar schools will pop up as a question because AQA love throwing in topics that are happening in the UK as we speak! For example, the whole Theresa May wanting to open up more grammar schools, as well as academies, and if you remember, make sure to add the statistic of 163 grammar schools in Britain!

I don't understand the difference between setting and streaming and mixed ability streaming.
Is setting and streaming the same thing?

Grammar schools are run by the council and select most of their pupils based on academic ability. There is often an exam to get in.

Grammar schools do not require fees, they just require the student to pass the 11+ test.
Advantage: Allows children from disadvantaged backgrounds to get a better quality of learning, and grammar schools tend to have higher attainment rates, and higher passing rates. Universities prefer students who attended grammar schools than those who attended state comprehensive schools.
Disadvantage: It may not be an accurate representation of a pupil's ability. It also creates a social division and if pupils get rejected by a grammar school, they'd be labelled as less able, and may stick to this role and commit the self fulfilling prophecy.
Hope this helped!

A lot of students get confused with this! Remember, setting and streaming are not the same thing! Setting is grouping people into different heirachal groups for every different subject, so a person may be in top set in English, but middle set in French. Streaming is again splitting people into groups of ability, but then they are "streamed" and are in the same set for EVERY subject. So a student may be in top set for every subject they are studying.
Mixed ability streaming is not a thing, its just mixed ability grouping which is where pupils who have different educational abilities are in the same classes, so a person who gets A's may be taught in the same class as a C grade student.

No they are not the same, setting is based on being grouped in core subjects such as english and maths and streaming is grouped on ability in every single subject.
