A resource for teachers and other educators keen on keeping students in touch with what happens from now on in Haiti. Short, flexible resources are designed to look beyond the aid agency and news media stereotypes. Taken together, the materials provide rich insights into the complex way humanity, in all its forms, responds over time to such a major disaster.
Twelve months on from the tragic earthquake which devastated Haiti, people are still rebuilding their lives -- but there's hope for the future.
The earthquake on 12 January 2010 was the worst to strike the country in 200 years. It killed more than 200,000 people (around 1.9 per cent of Haiti&'s population) and displaced around 1.3 million people.
Print and laminate.
Cut up (the first line should read I am..., the second line should read a definition which links to the next statement), then hand out to class (one or two each).
Perfect for revision.
A set of lessons for KS3 Risky world. Complete with unit overview, assessments and student trackers.
A set of 17 lessons that covers risks in the local area, risks around the world and then focuses in on plate tectonics. The theory of plate tectonics then lessons on earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis, focusing on the causes, impacts and responses the the ways in which they can be managed.
Covers a range of different lesson activities alongside assessments that are primarily decision making.
I have done it slightly differently this time. I normally go through plate boundaries altogether and then address volcanoes and earthquakes. This time I am going through how volcanoes and earthquakes occur at each type of plate boundary. I have designed an A4 sheet with the key content, diagrams and keywords. This way no-one should get left behind in a mixed ability class.
A lesson explaining subduction zones and collision zones on destructive margins. An A4 sheet of content is provided so students are spending time processing and practising content rather than copying and making notes.
These materials provide an outcome for a series of lessons studying the 2010 Haiti earthquake. It is suitable as an assessment and has been used - with adjustments - with Year 7 and Year 9 classes.
The PPT explains the task and also develops literacy skills around connecting points to construct an argument.
The worksheet and card sort work to provide a standardised plan, supplemented by information from previous lessons on Haiti together with additional research gathered through home work.
