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.

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1a

These resources form reading packs and activities to go with Part 1a of the OCR A Level Geography specification for Paper 3: Geographical Debates, focusing particularly on the Disease Dilemmas topic. The content covered in the reading packs is as follows (as in the specification): Diseases can be classified and their patterns mapped. The spread of diseases is complex and influenced by a number of factors. • How diseases can be classified, including infectious and non-infectious, communicable and noncommunicable, contagious and non-contagious, epidemic, endemic and pandemic. • Patterns of disease, including global distributions of malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, diabetes and cardio-vascular disease. • Disease diffusion and spread to new areas (Hägerstrand model), including the phases of diffusion, physical and socio-economic barriers. 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.

Climate Change Scheme of work -  outstanding ofsted

Climate Change Scheme of work - outstanding ofsted

This is a topic that I have updated recently as a result of significant media attention. The lessons follow a logical structure and offer imaginative and creative ideas to help pupils understand all corners of the topic. Not only do pupils understand the causes and effects, they examine evidence as to whether or not climate change is real or a hoax. The lessons are as follows: Lesson 1- Intro to climate change Lesson 2- Climate Change, real or hoax Lesson 3- The Ice Age Debate Lesson 4- Worst Case Scenario Lesson 5,6- Impacts of Climate Change Lesson 7- Impacts on the UK This content is suitable for year 9 but is taught to a high level and is more than suitable to use for GCSE. Most content is taken from our GCSE lessons

The fieldwork is based around locating the most unsafe location within their school. It gets students examining different data collection methods, and the sampling strategies they will use. Although this lesson mentions a school, it is easily adaptable to mention your own individual school.
