Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

The students always love this lesson as it involves them taking on Tourists or Resident roles in 5 different countries. The students get to explore how tourism impacts different people across the world using coloured role cards ( that you must laminate!) and discussing the various types of tourism and positive/negative effects that the industry has. All the cards have been made specifically for this lesson and are differentiated so that you may choose to give the higher ability students the resident cards and the lower ability the tourist cards as they contain slightly less complicated vocabulary and you can target your questions much more easily. The lesson contains a variety of assessment techniques and the student assessor roles always work particularly well- if you have a large group then use 4/5 student assessors. The exit cards only take 2/3 mins and I always insist on complete silence so the students can leave what was a high energy lesson very calmly. Ignore the homework slide at the end! Was made for a low ability group that couldn't cope with any more demanding homework. Enjoy!
