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.

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

This lesson is an introduction to Ghana and to make students aware of the physical and human landscape. I use the Geog.3 (coffee cup version). The settler to the lesson is to create two questions to test the student's peers in the starter. This is a team-based game called Butt Head where students ask questions to win balls to throw at a cap worn on the student's head. I have put instructions on the slide. The main (seen opposite) is a series of questions to hook the students about the lack of lights in rural Ghana. The questions have marks and ANSWERS on the next slide to peer or self assess. The main activity in the lesson is to create a poster on Ghana as a fact file in pairs using page 10-15 of the Geog.1 book. There is an extension of an empathetic diary entry of resident living in poverty. The development is a conundrum using a keypad as a puzzle for students. The plenary is called 'Mr Right or Mr Wrong' whereby students have to judge whether the facts are right or wrong. ANSWERS are provided to self or peer assess.

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 4) Colonization of Africa WITH ANSWERS

The lesson has a work booklet and introduces students into the historical past of the colonisation of Africa. It has source work and questions from a video link- seen opposite is the ANSWERS. #CHANGED FOR AN OFSTED INSPECTION- RATED OUTSTANDING! The lesson starts with a political cartoon and key questions to discuss in pairs. The starter is GeoSingStar whereby students create a poem, rap or song on 6 facts about Africa- this uses the new edition of the Geog.1 textbook or the pages of the Longmans School Atlas. The mini-plenary can be a task before the starter whereby students work independently to discover facts on Africa using the two textbooks cited. They then use this as a think-pair-share task. This will help with the factual knowledge for the GeoSingStar the following lesson. The main activity is a video link with questions for the scramble for Africa. The challenge task is analysis of political cartoons. Both activities has a mark scheme. The main activity uses the pages of the Geog.1 textbook to create a story board on the colonisation of Africa (the video link can be also be used). This works on the 'because' technique (SEE LEARNING WALL RESOURCES). The development is anagrams with an extension task, which is followed by hot potato. You can use the alternative plenary of GeoSingStar.
