It includes; - Starter task - to recap prior learning relevant to this lesson. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to the specification. - New information, hyperlinked video clips/websites and activities that use the case study of Liverpool to explore the meanings and relationships in this urban environment. Another supporting resource which is ideal for this lesson is Geofile 506 from September 2005 - I was able to find this online for free, however for me to share it on this site would no doubt infringe on some copyright laws, so have a look and you should be able to find it with little difficulty. - Plenary - exam style question.

CHANGING PLACES: 4. Place studies [Near and distant]

CHANGING PLACES: 4. Place studies [Near and distant]

These resources have been created to address the AQA Geography A-Level specification. I taught this concurrently to other lessons linked to the changing places topic as this is a guided but ultimately independent study, which I hoped would help build some skills and resilience which will ultimately help them with the NEA. There are two PPTs one which explores near places and one for a distant case study. Students need to pick their near study as it has to be somewhere they know well, the distant should be somewhere they don't know and quite contrasting. The near resource does include links to places but ultimately helps students to create a case study for whatever location they choose. The distant place study is for Oldham. It includes; - Starter task - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to the specification. - New information, hyperlinks to a range of relevant websites (for both quantitative and qualitative sources) and clear outline of activities that guide students through the creation of their own place study. The guidance includes clear instruction about how to navigate key websites to find the useful information they need to be able to create a quality place study. The NEAR PPT resource has weblinks relating to 3 different places but if these are not chosen good sites for collecting secondary data and ideas on different types of secondary data (both quantitative and qualitative) that can be utilised. - Further reading - wide range of hyperlinked web pages provided.
