Dealing with Data - Paperback
Brought to you by the team behind the “Pol-Soc Podcast” and “A Little Bit of Media Analysis”, Dealing With Data aims to help students and teachers integrate their study of data and case studies within the broader Politics and Society subject specification. The core skills of the Data-Based Question are supplemented with examples of how qualitative and quantitative data are used as evidence within discursive essay writing.
It is also designed to help students to ‘box smart’ by demonstrating how the same sample DBQs presented with the book can double up as some of the case studies that they will then need to illustrate the footprint of the course’s Key Thinkers, Key Concepts, and Key Institutions.
Each data concept is examined through relevant illustrations and sample questions, with strategies to address the questions in an exam context. Whether it’s authorship, methodology, sampling, or visual representations of data, this book aims to help the ‘novice’ gain a fundamental grasp of how data works both in our society and on our course!
- Key Concepts and short questions
- 16 sample Data-Based Questions (4 OL, 12 HL),
- “Worked Examples” answers for past questions
- Links to further digital case studies and the polsocpodcast.com ‘Data Log Tables’.
