it really depends on what your question is. if you have the question i can always help with that as it depends on the question asked as to what content you will be using :)

Assess the contribution of functionalist and New Right theories and research to our

understanding of society today. (33 marks)

well then, for that i would explain and describe both theories and then evaluate with realist, feminist, marxist, interpretivist etc approaches

Oh okay, Thankyou :) So does the same go for the question if it was a purely methods question?

yep, just work with what you have in the question like if it said "interviews" describe why interviews are the best for whichever youre doing, then say, actually no, questionnaires are the best
