Applying Theories of Deviance

In this activity students, preferably working in small groups, have to do two things in relation to a particular theory of deviance:

1. Briefly explain how a theory defines and explains deviant behaviour.

2. Show how the theory can be applied to different situations / scenarios in order to explain deviant behaviour.

The range of theories used (chosen by the teacher) can be adapted to the number of student groups and time available within the class.
