Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 6) How did the Development Gap Grow? WITH ANSWERS

This lesson has been renewed to incorporate exam practice and exam techniques. This coincides with the exam test on Ghana based on the sequence of lessons 5-7 (PLEASE SEE THESE LESSONS FOR SUPPORT OF EXAM). The lesson begins with a recap key word and definition activity on ACs, EDCs and LIDCs. It has also an extension task for higher ability learners. The second settler is a match exercise to the term 'Development Gap' which is the title of the lesson. The starter activity is matching pairs to introduce key terminology for the lesson. The main task uses the worksheet attached. The students colour-code the reasons for the development gap into four categories; social, economic, political/historical and environmental. This activity has ANSWERS. The second main activity is to use a Venn diagrams to take the A-L statements on the IWB to show why Ghana is underdeveloped. This consequently leads to the development task where we introduce students into the 'So What' strategy (as seen opposite). The students peer or self assess using the SUCCESS CRITERIA and ANSWERS. The final plenary is a role linking to the title of the lesson in groups.
