Just beginning to write some population resources for the CCEA spec. I tend to write quite ‘traditionally’ as a basis, then develop additional strategies later on…
I’ll be using the great population jelly babies game as an introduction.
Also produced a living graph exercise on World population growth and a simple factors affecting birth and death rates fill in sheet.
Different people have various kinaesthetic ways of making tectonic plate boundaries ‘sticky’. I used this idea when teaching tectonics last year, students changed the position of their hands to represent the different plate boundaries.
There is a practice, then the names of the boundaries appear and students have to show the correct hand positions, its timed, to make it a little more challenging. Add some music and it’s an enjoyable plenary.
Remember to show the power!
I wanted to take a source-based approach.
I’m going to start the theme by watching a Channel 4 programme for schools called ‘Consumer Power- Chocolate’, it was online at Teachers TV but can no longer be found in the search, it provides a good overview of the conditions faced by cocoa farmers and the issues related to the trade.
Also found this video which I feel gives a good overview of the concept of Fair Trade.
I’ve then produced two pen portraits of cocoa farmers, adapted from real case studies, but emphasising the areas I wanted. Followed by a task considering the arguments for and against the concept of Fair Trade.
Whilst using these sources I want students to summarise their findings in the sheet provided, which I’ll then go over using the following presentation, well that’s the plan…
P.S. mustn’t forget a little tasting
I’ve produced this PowerPoint, an information sheet, student sheet and a case study summary.
Today’s upload is a classification which I did for the Pilot pre-release this year, so recycled for the CCEA Development topic. It’s an overview of the winners and losers of globalisation.
Also remembered today about the ‘Luckiest Nut in the World’ video, love this…
