Formative Assessment:

This is carried out in weekly seminars where students – in groups but also as individuals - are asked to present their understanding of each thinker and the broader sociological context. They receive feedback from the seminar tutor in relation to their level of comprehension along with suggestions for further reading and how to develop their critical and analytical skills.

Seminars and drop-in sessions are also dedicated to writing strategies relating to the essay questions (with feedback from the seminar tutor).
