What do teachers say about this resource? (10174)

I loved this resource as it literally does what it says on the tin - a topic on a page. I think students would welcome this resource too both for ongoing reference and as a revision resource just before the final exams ... I liked the layout and think it will be particularly beneficial if printed onto A3 - the student could colour code or even RAG rate their own knowledge ... It enhances learning and revision. This resource could also provide an indication (both to teachers and students) where more work/in depth knowledge is needed ... Love the layout and presentation

E Clements, Head of Social Sciences & Peer Reviewer

The detail is superb and there are most of the key theorists I use in class on each summary

H Connellan, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

This is a great way to summarise the whole topic, but also to use as a revision activity ... Keywords are clearly identified and each section are presented ... Lower achiever pupils: it offers support on what is essential to be learned ... Great resources for both LAP and other students as a revision tool, but it can also be use as an assessment

J Poulin, HoD & Customer

This resource identifies key concepts, theorists, and perspectives. It includes basic definitions and provides an overview of the different topics. It might be used as a starting point for revision for students to pull apart and look at each section carefully as a tick sheet for what they know and what they need to learn.
This resource covers the basics necessary for the course, so it does meet the criteria of matching and interpreting the specification. It includes key concepts and theories/theorists.

D Thompson, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

A good resource that covers a variety of topics. I especially like the fact that it included multiple unit options.
It focuses on key words and sociological research which is good for less able and middle ability students.
The amount of detail provided is consistent across each of the mind maps. The key sociologists are highlighted which makes it easier for students to identify the key points.
An advantage for less able students who struggle with knowing how to create revision materials.
The key theories are consistently highlighted along the left hand side of the mind map, reinforcing the specification objectives for each topic.
