GCSE sociologists have been uncovering and analyzing inequalities within society, applying their knowledge to contemporary events. Year 10 have been studying the Crime and Deviance unit, applying the concept of ‘institutional racism’ to current events in America; and analyzing the riots and Black Lives Matter protests surrounding the death of George Floyd. Year 9 have got involved in this too through the tasks and reading set in the ‘Sociology newsletter’.
Year 9 have started the new topic of education – looking at how class, gender and ethnicity-based inequalities arise within the education system.
It has been inspiring to see the wider reading and research both years have been completing, as well as their creative expressions of these sociological inequalities. Go team Sociology!
