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.
Some background information on Haiti: population, geography, education, GDP, languages. This resource could be used as part of the globalisation topic and cultural studies which are are premoted in MFL (French inparticular here), geography and PSHE. It gives some context to the news of the earthquake. I will also use this with my tutor group.
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.
This powerpoint explains scale and links this to how measure distances on a map, through a step by step giuide through the process. In addition to the PPT there is a distances work sheet with seperate answers that get increasingly difficult and recap other key skills, such as 4 and 6 figure grid references.. <br />
This is a more interesting alternative to textbooks to help students learn about the five stages of the Demographic Transition Model.
Give out the note frames (in A3) and then have students rotate the information about each stage around - this is a 'market place' style activity, but moving the sheets is easier than moving students!
Each stage also has information on a case study country. These were chosen to align with the popular Nelson textbook, so absent students can copy up with ease.
I would welcome feedback on how the resources could be improved!
