Mass Media: Old and New

A range of PowerPoint Presentations focused on new and old forms of Mass Media, including globalisation and the digital social world.

Social Inequality Smoothies

Identifying a range of useful analogies to help students understand gender inequalities in the workplace.

Ghostsites: Wathistory

WatHistory is a YouTube site I’ve been meaning to write about but, for whatever reason, never got around to doing so until now. I guess I was inspired by the sociology ghostsites theme because this site seems to have something of a chequered history. Although the Twitter account ceased trading in 2018 and the .com website may never […]

Ghostsite: The Sociology Tutor

Every so often I chance upon web sites that have been started by teachers with what seems like a shed-load of initial enthusiasm. They create and distribute lots of free resources in a relatively short space of time and then suddenly just abandon their baby before it’s had a chance to really grow. One of […]

Theory Summaries

I was going to tack this on to one or other of my previous Knowledge Organiser posts but then thought better of it because it’s more a classroom presentation than an Organiser per se. Originally a 2019 PowerPoint Presentation by Colette Cradock (I’m assuming – that’s what the metadata says but whether she is the […]

Manification and Mentrification

Read the following and, within 5 seconds of finishing, provide an answer: “A father and his son are involved in a car accident, as a result of which the father is very badly injured and his son is rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.  However, the surgeon takes one look at the boy and says […]

Even More A-level Sociology Organisers

Sociology Podcasts: Theory for 10@10

This is a set of podcasts, plus associated supporting material (such as PowerPoint Presentations that summarise key ideas and throw-in a few student activities for good measure), created by Liz Beaven and Andy Leach from Sociology Support that are being given-away for absolutely no money (although you do have to go through a fairly-painless Checkout […]

Family PowerPoints Bundle

This collection of PowerPoints for Families and Households comes from a variety of sources, only one of whom I know personally. Like all of the other Presentations, however, I know not from where it came. The Presentations cover a range of family-related issues and ideas, from different family perspectives, through the role of the family […]

The Crime Collection

In a previous post I pulled-together all the free crime and deviance films we have available to create a simple one-stop-shop (so to speak) you could browse, rather than have to search individually for these films. I’ve extended this thinking to bring together all the posts we’ve made on Crime and Deviance – and since […]
