Card Sort: What were the arguments for and against pit closures in 1992?

Card Sort: What were the arguments for and against pit closures in 1992?

In late 1992, the UK government announced that it would begin a process to close its remaining 31 coal mines with the loss of 30,000 jobs. The government argued that Britain no longer needed British coal as it could import its energy sources such as a lot more cheaply from elsewhere. This led to a ‘Dash for Gas’ with Britain’s once mighty coal industry being shut down. There were many other benefits and downsides to closing the pits. This outstanding card sort is designed to help students understand and assess some of the arguments for and against closing the pits in 1992. It can be used as a starter, plenary or main activity to accompany any main stream text book or resource on this topic. The nature of the task means that it appeals to the full range of ability. When you purchase this resource, you will be able to download a single page Word Document which contains a learning objective, instructions, two heading cards as well as fourteen fully editable statements that can sorted under them. I have also linked in video clip from the parliamentary debate on this issue with a speech from Tony Ben, which are worthwhile watching with your students, depending on their ability. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Know: Why did the UK government decide to close its remaining coal mines in 1992? Understand: What were the arguments for and against pit closures? Evaluate: Should the British government have decided to close down the coal industry in 1992? WILF - What am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Why did the UK government decide to close its remaining coal mines in 1992? Explain: What were the arguments for and against pit closures?

OUP Geog.2 Summer Homework

OUP Geog.2 Summer Homework

This is a booklet is based on the Michelin i-Spy books. Students get points for spotting things in and around their homes and beyond. It covers all the chapters from the geog.2 textbook from OUP, and is designed to be a homework project for students to complete during the summer holidays. For each item they find they get points and these points lead to house points, merits, credits, stars (whichever reward system your school uses): I even give students a certificate for completing it. There are 20 pages which can be printed as an A5 booklet or you can choose which pages you want to use as each chapter from the textbook has a set of activities: my version has 16 pages based on the chapters I covered and some extra puzzle pages as well. There is a word puzzle and a place for the students to keep a record of their points as they collect them, there is a place for parents to sign confirmation that students actually did achieve what they say just in case you get a student that makes it up. There are spaces for images, due to copyright I have removed the pictures that I use, but they can easily by added.
