    How do you structure the 20 marker on Methods in Context, I’m struggling to find a good basic structure where I can just apply all the knowledge depending on the question

    I usually do the PET method, so you do a paragraph on each one of practical, ethical and theoretical and keep linking it back to the issue you have to talk about. Though my teacher did say that examiners don't like this method that much but I personally find it much easier and I've never had a problem with it (plus she taught it to us that way, so I don't think it'll be that much of an issue)

    And you apply this method to every 20 marker in the education section ? So if the question was “evaluate the strenghs and limitations of using group interviews...”? You just say the strengths and weaknesses?

    Do you not bring in any other material like comparisons between different methods, sociological perspectives?

    I would do an introduction explaining which kind of sociologists would use the method, so interpretivists or positivists. And then for the paragraphs I'd do one on practical factors and link it back- so talk about the fact that's in a school means it might be difficult to get access or it might be time consuming or whatever and then link it back to education and what the specific issue is. And then do the same for ethical and theoretical.
