COASTAL EROSION - WHY THE BARMSTON BUNGALOWS ON THE CLIFF TOP WERE CONDEMNED

COASTAL EROSION - WHY THE BARMSTON BUNGALOWS ON THE CLIFF TOP WERE CONDEMNED

This unit has a focus on coastal erosion at Barmston. (East Coast England). It is about wave energy, cliff recession, storms in the North Sea and Storm surges bringing sea levels higher than normal to undercut the cliffs along the coastline at Barmston. This unit indicates the links between erosional forces and the consequences of cliff recession on the owners of the bungalows (we would call them houses in Australia). This material has been used in a series of coastal studies within the Australian curriculum at lower secondary and at senior secondary levels. It promotes interest and when placed on the screen the material becomes a source of questioning and discussion. The attached pages of rhyming verse were student creations and contributions (with some editing). This unit can standalone or it can fit into studies of coastal geomorphology. Hopefully this will be a useful support for coastal studies. Come and see where the bungalows once stood and with your students you will be able to work out why they are no longer there. It’s a true story with powerful undercurrents.

Geography in the News - International Edition - 16th April 2018

A fortnightly quiz that focuses on current world news from a geographic perspective. The quiz is designed to suit schools in all countries at the upper primary/lower secondary level with questions based on world news. There are also special editions for both the UK and Australia elsewhere on my TES shop. The quiz is published to the TES website every second Sunday of the school year. The quiz is made up of five mapping questions plus fifteen multiple choice questions + answers. The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. The quiz is coloured but will photocopy well as b/w. The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. A separate answer file is included, answers are on the second page of the file that is not displayed on the TES website (so students can’t do a search of the TES website to find the answers!). How are schools using Geography in the News? As a quiz that can be completed in as little as 6 minutes. Group research. As homework exercises that students can research the answers from a range of news websites. Weekly group competitions within the class over a term or the year. Weekly school geography competitions to promote the subject. As a discussion starter. In whatever way Geography in the News is being used it has been seen to engage students in Geography and improve their geographic knowledge by taking them beyond the classroom. Comments from teachers using the quiz: “… I have received only positive feedback from my Geography teachers. The students look forward to it each week and it has motivated them to become more aware of world events and current affairs. It doesn’t take too long before they make an effort to watch the news in order to win the title of Geo Hero for the week” “Fantastic idea. My students have become so engaged with world news and learning how geography is applied in the real world”. Geography in the News … a great way to engage your students with the world of Geography outside the classroom!
