KS3 Dance Year 8 ‘Gumboot Dance’ New and Improved 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint

This ‘Gumboot Dance’ New and Improved 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint is for teachers teaching KS3 dance (ideally in year 8). This is a new and improved version of my previous ‘Gumboot Dance’ resource. With this resource comes much improved starter activities emphasising on dance skills and terminology, a fresh look PowerPoint, YouTube Clips and research tasks. Purpose: This SOW explores the History and evolution of South African Gumboot dance. Pupils will gain and develop basic dance appreciation skills through watching clips of Gumboot dancing and ‘“Gumboots” Through the eyes of Michael Moloi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yX1E-Zb-fY which will lead into discussions about the History of the style in relation to actions, space, dynamics and relationships. Props are introduced from lesson 4 and inspiration on how to use them is drawn from Stomp the Musical. Pupils will gain and develop basic performance and choreography skills through working as a whole class to perform set Gumboot rhythms using unison, repetition and action and reaction. Working in small groups, pupils are encouraged to be creative and are allocated time to experiment and improvise choreographic ideas with their groups resulting in a group performance of their Gumboot choreographies that include a prop. Pupils will have the opportunity to view each other’s work and provide feedback to improve their own and other’s work. This SOW also provides pupils with research homework tasks to promote independence and research skills needed at KS4. Includes: Detailed 6 lesson (60 min lessons) SOW with: aims, learning outcomes, time scale, resources, key words, level descriptors, lesson calendar, lesson objectives, starter activities (bell tasks), main activities, skills, assessment for learning, differentiation and homework. 6 lesson (60 min per lesson) delivery PowerPoint with: lesson objectives, starter (bell activities), main tasks, talking points, success criteria, YouTube clips, level descriptors etc.

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

The balance between providing resources for a growing and technologically advanced population and protecting biodiversity is an ever-increasing problem. In this activity, students gain an insight into the work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and model the conflict between development and the needs of people and the environment. They role play a stakeholder meeting between local villagers and developers, mediated by conservation researchers, to see if they can come to an agreement on proposed development ideas. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and why it is important Students discuss negative and positive environmental and social impacts of development to make a decision.

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students learn to write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues See more at: https://www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/conserving-nature
