A2 study lessons – practice questions

Please can you tackle these questions in your study periods over the next couple of weeks. I have chosen the questions because I think that it would be really helpful to formulate an answer for these topics and I think they are challenging.

You don’t need to write full essays for the 18 mark and 33 mark questions, just create a plan and email to me. Thanks.

Identify and briefly explain three characteristics of sects (9 marks)

Using material from Item A and elsewhere, assess the view that the growth of religious fundamentalism is a reaction to globalisation (18 marks)

Assess different sociological accounts of the role and functions of religious institutions and movements in contemporary society (33 marks)

 

A2 Homework: Beliefs in Society

After you have handed in the 33 mark question, the next homework is to prepare for the following question:
