WJEC/ Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 3- Lesson 7- Managing Tectonic Hazards and Assessed Homework

WJEC/ Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 3- Lesson 7- Managing Tectonic Hazards and Assessed Homework

This is the 7th lesson in the 3rd theme of the new WJEC/Eduqas 2016 specification for geography. This lesson looks at different strategies that can be used to predict volcanic eruptions, what hazard mapping is and the 3P’s. There is an assessed homework that pupils should complete as homework and this is usually given out and handed in before the revision session, so during the revision session I would go through the assessed homework and anything else that pupils didn’t understand. The assessed homework would count towards their overall grade for that theme. A detailed markscheme and grade boundaries are included. Any feedback on this lesson would be a great help as they will help to improve future lessons that I upload. JPMathsandGeography

EdExcel Introduction to hazards (data, multiple choice and celebrity hazards!)

EdExcel Introduction to hazards (data, multiple choice and celebrity hazards!)

This lesson is an introduction to the hazardous earth module to classify, define and describe patterns of hazards over time. Students have to identify the clues given by the celebrities that initially identify the hazard followed by the type and if possible the event. There is also a starter activity that identifies the different hazard types and extends understanding so students are aware of the difference between hazard and a disaster. Students have the opportunity to complete a variety of tasks on the task sheet that is structured in the same style as the GCSE examination paper with the multiple choice and then a data task. There is also an extended activity to demonstrate challenge and embed learning.
