OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

This set of resources and activities covers the content from the OCR A Level Geography specification as follows: There is a relationship between physical factors and the prevalence of disease which can change over time. • Global patterns of temperature, precipitation, relief and water sources and how they affect patterns of disease. • Physical factors can influence vectors of disease such as the prevalence of mosquitoes in warm, humid areas close to water sources. • How seasonal variations influence disease outbreaks such as periods of drought or monsoon rains. • Climate change provides the conditions for emerging infectious diseases to spread to new places and new hosts such as West Nile virus, tsetse fly and tick seasons. • The conditions for zoonotic infectious diseases such as bird flu or rabies to establish and spread from animals to humans. The reading handouts are structured to cover each of the above bullet points in detail, and evaluative links are made throughout. Th activities are designed to challenge students to draw together knowledge from these readings (and can also be used in conjunction with Part 1a - also on TES). Many different maps and statistics are included - no extra research/resources would be needed.

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.
