Population of the UK - Using GIS to explore Distribution and Density in the UK

Population of the UK - Using GIS to explore Distribution and Density in the UK

This is taught in one of the very first Year 7 Geography lessons at the Grammar School that I teach in. I set the England and Wales GIS task as homework (a master for which I have attached). I then introduce Population terminology before exploring Scotland and Northern Ireland's population density in class (undertaking GIS by hand). There is also a Diamond 9 task looking at reasons for sparsely and densely populated areas

Immigration DME Exercise

Immigration DME Exercise

This is an activity I use with my Year 7's at the Grammar School that I teach in. They are given the booklet and have to decide which two candidates are chosen to enter Brexit Britain. This is the second lesson in a scheme of work on migration. There is no right answer - the thought process and weighing up DME process is fascinating and allows students to deeply consider issues relating to immigration.

2017-2018 Year 11 OCR B Revision 4) Christmas Mock Booster for OCR B Specimen Paper WITH ANSWERS

2017-2018 Year 11 OCR B Revision 4) Christmas Mock Booster for OCR B Specimen Paper WITH ANSWERS

Seen opposite is the Christmas Mock Booster in the lead up to our mixed Paper for 2017. It has listed the human exam questions listed we are focusing on in the booster. The paper will be a mix of Component 1 and 2; namely Urban Futures, Resource Reliance, Physical fieldwork, Climate Change and Ecosystems. The specimen papers can be found below: http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/gcse-geography-b-geography-for-enquiring-minds-j384-from-2016/assessment/ The starter begins with a quiz on questions of low order coming up in the exam. It then focuses on students marking a model example I have written on the following question: CASE STUDY – ways of life in cities. Examine how ways of life vary within one LIDC or EDC city. Name of LIDC or EDC city. [8] The question is meant to trick them as it is written for an AC so therefore will receive a L1- 1 mark or no level (depending on how harsh you want to be). The students then try to write the question. The next question is taught using the acronym GCSE (General Comment Specific Example) and can be found below: (iii) Describe the pattern in predicted population change between 2001 and 2025 for cities in the EDCs shown in the table. [3] All questions shown in the first slide are taught and MODEL ANSWERS given using strategies we use within the department, such as 'So What?' and BUG. The plenary is a game of Kahoot with instructions on how to set up an account.

The lesson has been improved this year to include MODEL ANSWERS such as the 6 mark answer that comes up in the Birmingham Topic Test. THIS IS A FREE RESOURCE! The aim of the lesson is for the students to feed back on the 8 sides of Birmingham in their groups of 3/4. Please see me ICT lesson for details. The challenge activity at the start of the lesson is a distribution question on unemployment in Birmingham. This settler activity has a mark scheme. The starter activity is key word catch with words attached above to use for the students in their teams. The main activity is completion of an A3 sheet whilst assessing their peers' presentations. A homework task - with template attached - is used to consolidate this learning and prepare for the topic test. The development task works the students to break down a 6 mark question seen below: For a named city in an AC, describe one initiative you have studied and how it will help to make the city more sustainable. [6 marks]. The students then attempt this question in 6 minutes and I take it in to mark. If you have time, there is an extension activity whereby the students attempt two further questions which also have MODEL ANSWERS. The plenary is geographical hangman.
