KS3 Geography Lockdown Global Development Project - home schooling

(2)
This resource is designed to last for 12 lessons and be independently completed during lock down. It includes the following topics: development indicators and index, employment structure, trade, fair trade, aid, Charity:water case study. It is a single PowerPoint with instructions for the students to follow on each slide. The idea is that over the 12 lessons the PowerPoint will build up into a project that can then be submitted for teacher assessment. The lessons have differentiated tasks to stretch the more able. Each lesson/topic area can be graded using the mark scheme and AtL (attitude to learning) score, which can then be recorded in the student’s diary (these are all located on slides in the PowerPoint). Many of the resources are included at the end of the slide show, although a number of hyperlinks to websites and videos are also included. I designed this lesson for Year 9 but it could be used across KS3. I have also included a version for students who do not have access to the internet. I have tried to make this: Easy for the students to download - only one PowerPoint file. Easy for the students to follow - clear instructions on each slide Accessible - differentiated Challenging - differentiated Good Geography closely linked to what they would have been studying at school. Assessed - mark scheme for self and teacher assessment Well resourced - a range of media for research included.

Next the students are introduced to the effects of drought in Australia via a YouTube clips and photographs of the 2019 bush fires. The students are given the task of classifying facts about the effects into social and environmental categories before using these and making links between them to construct PEE paragraphs. One paragraph has been completed for them and they are required to write two of their own. After that the students are given a table of adaptations. They have to classify these by scale before selecting the adaptation that they believe to be the most effective and justifying their choice. All resources are included in the PowerPoint.

In the third lesson the groups should give their presentations. whilst speaking sheets are provided to take notes on the viewpoints of others and writing down questions to ask them. After every speech undertake a discussion activity based on what has been said. Then debate the two key questions once everyone has spoken.

At the end pupils will be asked to complete and opinion line task for both the questions and to feedback the reasons for their opinions. To increase student engagement each student is assigned two other students to observe using the engagement tally chart, they should record the student’s engagement at 3 points in the lesson. At the end of the lesson the students can give feedback to the students that they have observed.
