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? Analyse: Should the British government have decided to close down the coal industry in 1992? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. 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 quality time with the people who matter. Anyway, have fun and stay in touch via social media for the latest updates. Kind Regards Roy

(6 resources) ks3 gcse 1-9 geography synoptic food resource production population water people

(6 resources) ks3 gcse 1-9 geography synoptic food resource production population water people

A super lesson that explores the impact the global food production could have upon the planet. Issues such as water, transportation & population growth are covered. A great synoptic task. GCSE style question added to test understanding. 2 styles of teacher feedback (marking) included to save time. Just print off & do yourself or get pupils to peer assess. Students use the information sheet (no need for books) to create an information sheet. I normally use a large piece of sugar paper & get pupils to work on their own. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. The cartoon strip is best in A3 too. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

Lesson 3: Global Citizenship (Money and Inequality)

Lesson 3: Global Citizenship (Money and Inequality)

This extensive resource can easily be stretched out to 2, or even 3 lessons. It is intended to educate, and to some extent agitate, young citizenship students to be aware of the global financial situation they are situated in and how some activists perceive it. It includes case studies (e.g. the Raza Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh), articles, extension activities, an exhibition of art by Manchester based artist Polyp (who gave his consent for use of his resources), video clips, kinaesthetic group exercises, think pair share. I’ve thrown it all in into this 53 slides. The length of the resource gives you scope to pick and choose, and hopefully should meet the exact requirements of the class you have. There are also extensions about the banking crisis, and possible solutions, for stretch and challenge tasks or KS5. Learning questions (objectives) include: What is money? Am I rich? What is Exploitation? Is the global money system give a fair deal to all who are part of it? Extension: Is financial inequality out of control, and if so how can it be fixed? This extensive resource aims to meet Citizenship, PHSE, UNESCO Sustainable Development goals (4.7) and is created for a religious studies compulsory group (which combines all of the above curricula in my school) to explore the ethics and develop debating skills. It can also be used in geography lessons effectively.

Lesson 2:  Uncomfortable Histories (Global Citizenship)

Lesson 2: Uncomfortable Histories (Global Citizenship)

This lesson aims to give students (particularly British ones) some understanding of the histories and activities of Britain we don’t mention as much as the 2nd World War, the Tudors and the Romans. It is an exploration of the slave trade, the arms trade, native american indians, aborigines and transportation and our involvement in India during the empire. It aims to give students an alternative perspective on Britain without undermining them as individuals, invalidating their experience or burdening them with guilt. Hopefully it leads to some interesting discussion and learning. It certainly does in my classroom! Group activities, based on SOLE (Self Organised Learning Environments), which need some monitoring but the resources created would work well with a variety of exercises including marketplace and others. It aims to meet the Global Citizenship Education aims, specifically 4.7 (which focuses on global citizenship education and education for sustainable development). Any feedback greatly received Learning Questions include: What are the histories we learn about in school? What was Britain’s role in the slave trade, Native American Indians, Aboriginal peoples, the arms trade and India? How do these histories affect our opinions about today’s world? Extension: can you figure out what/whose histories are not included in this lesson? How would you find out about them? Are we responsible for our ancestors’ actions?

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

Used as a joiner lesson between introduction to secondary industry and Nike Sweatshops. The student learn about what Ethical Shopping is and how they as consumers have the power to change industry. They really enjoyed designing their adverts and were very proud when I put them on display. They produced them on computers but some did them on paper, both work as long as it is heavily sampled as many struggle at first with an adverts purpose and layout. The students will have lots of questions and I usually spend 3 lessons on this in total- 1st- introduce term and explain and assess sample ads/start designing. 2nd- Complete design and finish for homework. 3rd- Peer assess each other’s and link it to the environment. They then go on to learn about Nike and their understanding of ethical examples really helped them engage and progress. Please review if you download, thanks :)

The whole lesson is about introducing globalisation to students. This lesson starts with an engaging bell task and then moves onto a great activity where students walk around the room and find the information about globalisation. Students receive worksheets.

Posters with task to do can be spread around the classroom; this activity can be also carried out in the form of a group work. As a follow-up activity students have got a written task to do. The lesson ends with students writing what is globalisation on either sticky notes or other colourful pieces of paper and attach them to their books. The lesson scaffolds tsudents work all the way through and ends with a productive activity.

Conflict: A geographical perspective (Unit of Work)

This resource is a collection of 15 PowerPoint presentations that were used to deliver a bridging unit between Key Stage 3 and GCSE Geography but which could also be used for PSHCE lessons. It is ideal for using with Year 8/9 classes who have made their option choices as it engages those who have not opted for Geography but teaches vital skills to those who are going on to GCSE. There are some purely skills-based lessons such as ‘Describing Landscapes: Photo Sketches’ and ‘Contrasting Landscapes of the Middle East’ but other lessons are specfic to certain conflicts and events in history such as 9/11, the Syrian Civil War and the Middle East conflict.
