NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 10) The 7 Impacts of Climate Change WITH ANSWERS

NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 10) The 7 Impacts of Climate Change WITH ANSWERS

The lesson has been improved to further support the learners within my care in answering exam questions and include exam ANSWERS. The aim of this lesson is to split the students into groups for ICT work for the main. I usually give the students a couple of lessons and access to the OCR B textbook and the internet. The settler task as the students enter the room is to answer the following questions: Describe the distributions of CO² tonnes for 0-2 and over 20. [4] This can be seen opposite and includes SUCCESS CRITERIA that I go through with them. The next slide has the ANSWERS to peer assess. The starter task is linked to the homework, which can be done if you are starting the lesson in the ICT room. The students log on the the WWF page to test their families carbon footprint. I test this the following lesson in an assessment. The mini-plenary is a cartoon which assesses previous learning [PLEASE SEE LESSON 8] and includes the 3 mark question: Using the ideas from last lesson, discuss the cartoon and its meanings below. Who do you think is to blame for the enhanced greenhouse effect? [3]. ANSWERS are provided. The main task is students to create a PowerPoint, Prezi or alternative presentation on one of the 7 impacts of climate change. They use the OCR B textbook to read through and then use the internet to find additional facts. This is peer assessed in three lessons time. PLEASE SEE LESSON 11. The group work should take approximately a lesson and a half to design. I have provided extension questions or the students seen below: Research the rise in sea level (page 60-61). Describe a social and environmental impact that results from rising sea level. [4 marks] Explain two ways in which people are affected by climate change (see you research and the one for sea level or other example) [4]. These have a mark scheme and ANSWERS for the student to self assess. Similarly, I have added a slide here with additional questions about Carbon Dioxide Emissions with ANSWERS to further develop students knowledge. The plenary is Geographical Hangman to test new literacy from this topic.

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

This lesson is an introduction to Ghana and to make students aware of the physical and human landscape. I use the Geog.3 (coffee cup version). The settler to the lesson is to create two questions to test the student's peers in the starter. This is a team-based game called Butt Head where students ask questions to win balls to throw at a cap worn on the student's head. I have put instructions on the slide. The main (seen opposite) is a series of questions to hook the students about the lack of lights in rural Ghana. The questions have marks and ANSWERS on the next slide to peer or self assess. The main activity in the lesson is to create a poster on Ghana as a fact file in pairs using page 10-15 of the Geog.1 book. There is an extension of an empathetic diary entry of resident living in poverty. The development is a conundrum using a keypad as a puzzle for students. The plenary is called 'Mr Right or Mr Wrong' whereby students have to judge whether the facts are right or wrong. ANSWERS are provided to self or peer assess.

Oral History: Population Movement 1750 - 1900

Oral History: Population Movement 1750 - 1900

This outstanding lesson has been designed to help students studying population movement 1750 - 1900. It had been field tested and refined many times and is a really fun and engaging lesson, which has a really big impact of students. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability as it includes a range of tasks and activities which can be selected in whole or part to suit your students. You will need access to You Tube in order to be able to access the song. When you download this lesson you will be able to access a Microsoft Word document which contains the lyrics to the song 'Dalesman's Litany' and PowerPoint. There is enough work to fully engage a normal class of students for at least one lesson. The PowerPoint facilitates the lesson and includes aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, a snowballing starter. The next couple of slides set the scene and explains why Britain's population was on the move. This is followed up by two source activities which could be print off and completed as an investigation or used as part of a class discussion to help set the scene for the main activity. The next slide is a pro and con thinking skills organiser on the problems facing historians when they use oral history as evidence. This could be competed as an activity or as a plenary. I have included a completed version at the end of the presentation. The next activity involves playing the song by clicking on the hyperlink in show mode. I personally would give students a copy of the lyrics to annotate but if you are short on the photocopying budget then you can get around it by getting them in pairs or groups to write down the jobs / places that the person in the folk song has done / lived to help illustrate the impact of the changes on peoples lives.. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an Industrial Revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why was Britain’s population on the move 1750 – 1850? Understand: What factors caused this change? Evaluate: How useful is oral history as evidence about the past? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why was Britain’s population of the move? Explain: What factors caused this change? Analyse: How useful is oral history as historical evidence? If you like this lesson then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. I have unloaded this one for free as its my favourite lesson of all time. If you wish you can also follow 'The History Academy' on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want. Kind Regards Roy
