The Sociology Teacher: the Journal of the BSA Teaching Group

THE SOCIOLOGY TEACHER

The Journal of the BSA Teaching Group

The BSA Teaching Group is a network of people keen to further the interests of sociology teaching from secondary to tertiary education.

The aim of the Group is to encourage and promote the teaching of the Social Sciences in Primary, Secondary, Further and Higher Education. The Group therefore provides opportunities for those teaching Sociology to develop and share ideas and strategies for the promotion and delivery of the teaching of the Sociology. To this end, one of the main activities of the BSA Teaching Group is the dissemination of information relating to teaching materials and teaching methods. The Group is also active in promoting the interests of Sociology teachers to examination boards, academic bodies, governmental and political agencies and the wider public.

Members of the Group can be found in every sector of education, but the majority are teachers of Advanced Level Sociology.

Could you write for The Sociology Teacher?

This publication is an on-line journal aimed at supporting the A-Level Sociology teacher in terms of subject updates, teaching ideas, new resources and general inspiration for Sociology.  If you feel you could write for us, please send submissions to Patrick Robinson (BSA Teaching Group Journal Editor) at prs@cadcol.ac.uk.  Articles tend to be 1,500 words and are most relevant if they link to the A-Level syllabus.  (We are not a peer reviewed journal and don’t have the funds to pay for contributions but your help would be most appreciated and can lead to an invite to be a guest speaker at our conference days).
