Do this for each paragraph 

For me essays my structure is 

Introduction - definition of the theory or keyword or maybe even a fact

4 AO1 - each have their own criticism

6 AO2 - you can criticise the AO2 even further

Conclusion - which side do you pick?

I am also struggling a little with the essay writing.

However, being an A2 exam I know that the majority of the marks come from evaluation or A02. For every descriptive statement that you make it is important to attempt some sort of evaluation. 

Your essay should probably follow this structure: Name your scholar (the person who came up with the idea), their theory (what the idea was), supporting evidence and then criticism. It is important to balance your essay, having an equal number of strengths and limitations.

I know I haven't made any specific suggestions about unit 3, but if you know your subject matter, it is really just a case of learning an essay structure.

Hope I have helped a little bit? :)

Ooh,  just another point - I have been told that at A2 it is important to embed your evaluation into your essay rather than leaving it to the end. Apparently this comes across as a much more sophisticated argument.

Yeah i definately agree with making sure you always evaluate your points !

However i have a question w. When doing questions on *** a particular theory has contributed to our understanding on society whats best to include because its so broad? 

For example Postmodernist contributions has neevr come up so what are the best sociologist to include and criticise any suggestions?
