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 actual author is anyone’s guess) that I’ve converted into a pdf version in case you find this format more useful. Either way, I’ve linked to both so you can make your own decision.

What you get is half-a-dozen pages of text, with a pic. or two to lighten the load, covering all the main sociological perspectives:

  • Interactionism
  • Feminism
  • Functionalism
  • New Right
  • Postmodernism
  • Marxism
  • Each is basically a one-page overview with one or two criticisms attached.

    There’s nothing too demanding or extensive here – the pages are designed to be “theory summaries” and that’s exactly what you get – but the whole thing might be useful as a “theory introduction” that could save you a bit of preparation time.
