AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography - Development - Just a Case of More Money?

AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography - Development - Just a Case of More Money?

This presentation looks at the various strategies that have been adopted by LEDCs to improve their prospects when it comes to economic development. It considers foreign investment (sugar and tourism in Mauritius), microfinance (Kenya) and debt relief (Bolivia) as ways of promoting economic progress. Students are asked to consider whether just 'throwing money' at the poor is ever going to work in the long term. There are a number of thought-provoking images and questions for group discussion as well as tasks for students to complete independently.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography - Development Indicators

AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography - Development Indicators

This presentation looks at the different ways in which development can be measured. It discusses how single measures of economic development can hide inequality and, therefore, not show us the whole pictures. It considers the circumstances in which development can be held back (e.g. Syrian conflict) and looks at the example of global patterns of literacy. There are a number of engaging tasks and thought-provoking images throughout the presentation, which is aimed at the AQA 9-1 Geography syllabus.

Exploring China

Exploring China

This presentation provides 32 photographs showing the rich history, culture and geography of China. It would be ideal for all ages, but particularly at key stage three as an introduction to China and to aid discussion on specific topics about China. Pictures include Hong Kong, Macau, the Great Wall of China, Beijing and the Forbidden Kingdom. The photographs also show the less famous face of China, what it is like for the people who live there and the stark contrasts within the country. The photographs are all taken by myself to show the famous, the spectacular and the ordinary day to day life in this fascinating country.

It explores the Brandt Line (1981), the work of Alfred Sauvy ('First World, Second World ....', 1952), the Happiness Index and the Human Development Index as ways of measuring human development. Students are encouraged to think critically about the strengths and weaknesses of each model and to attempt to draw a Brandt Line for the 21st Century - yes, we know it's impossible; that's the point! This matches up with the bit in the syllabus where it says there are "Different ways of classifying parts of the world according to their level of economic development and quality of life."
