These resources form reading packs and activities to go with Part 1a of the OCR A Level Geography specification for Paper 3: Geographical Debates, focusing particularly on the Disease Dilemmas topic. The content covered in the reading packs is as follows (as in the specification):
Diseases can be classified and their patterns mapped. The spread of diseases is complex and influenced by a number of factors.
• How diseases can be classified, including infectious and non-infectious, communicable and noncommunicable, contagious and non-contagious, epidemic, endemic and pandemic.
• Patterns of disease, including global distributions of malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, diabetes and cardio-vascular disease.
• Disease diffusion and spread to new areas (Hägerstrand model), including the phases of diffusion, physical and socio-economic barriers.
Five different activities are included within these resources, including a card sort of key words, low tariff examination question practice, and more evaluative thinking skills.
Evaluative comments are included throughout in order to build up the content for the essays and synoptic questions.
