Hopefully we can try and help each other. So i started off explaining UK poverty rates. Then discussed absolute and relative poverty, then the approaches used by sociologist when looking at the causes of poverty; structural and agency. Then discuss how the introduction of the welfare state in the early 1900’s, then the changed made from the introduction. Section 2 talk about the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and contrast with Centre for Social Jusitice. And discuss The Resoltion Foundation. Political learnings and how the goverment have introduced things to reduce poverty ; food banks. Section 3 patterns of health. What are they and what does it mean? You then need to identify one factor that you feel affects a person's health chances? What is it and how does it affect people? link it to political perspectives, so if you choose diet as your factor, then you might think about how this has been viewed politically and dealt with?
Hope that helps. Ive just made notes so far but I’m really struggling too so if you’ve got any advice once you get started I’d really appreciate it ! Good luck. It’s a tough one x

Same! unit 3 made it look like a newspaper article but online journals look nothing like that? I know some people have done it on powerpoint but it's just confusing me more. I think I'll get it all written up first and then see how it fits the layout :frown: xx

im really stuck on this unit, would you be able to help me please x thanks in advance x
If anyone can offer me any advice with this unit it would be appreciated. I feel like how I would want respond to the questions asked in the assignment brief does not necessarily correlate with the study material provided, this unit is blowing my brain a little really, the course material seems more of a political history lesson...
