Geography - Geographical skills - Sketching (field and from photos)

(0)
A range of practice activities to help students develop their sketching technique. Designed for the new AQA 1-9, but is relevant to other specifications and year groups. The lesson would be particularly useful to a GCSE group before they do their fieldwork, and will also be suitable for a KS3 class. There are also detailed 'key points' so students understand why they need to know how to sketch, and what technique makes it effective. On top of the field sketching there is a focus on application of key terms. The lesson has a range of visual resources, all relevant to the new 1-9 GCSE. A free wallchart is available to download at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/geography-geographical-skills-sketching-wall-display-11486949 The main aim is… To develop and practice field sketching / sketching from photographs technique. To effectively annotate and label sketches to show understanding. Key ideas and content… This is a practical lesson which would benefit from lots of student interaction and discussion. There are links to content, but it would work without – solely as a sketching lesson. To differentiate… Use the resources with the picture above a blank box for weaker groups. Focus on the same photos. Print the checklist. Display the photos on the board and discuss as a class. To extend… This lesson could be used several times in the same format. The teacher can add their own photos. Take the class on a local visit to practice the technique. Provide word banks for annotations. To assess… Peer assessment is woven into the main activity. Teacher should be able to see visual progress with the quality of sketching and level of annotations.

Geography - Skills - Describing Places

(0)
A big lesson with lots of opportunity for differentiation and engagement, as well as paired or group work. Basically, students learn how to describe places, and then apply this skill. It would work well as a skills building lesson in KS3, or as an end of term type lesson with either KS3 or KS4. There are differentiated resources for lower and higher, and a number of ways in which the activities could be undertaken (which are in the lesson plan). There are teacher notes and a lesson plan. The activities are clear, and there are Superstar extension activities. --- The main aim is… This is a big lesson which could be used as an end of term activity, or as a skills building lesson. Students either learn or develop their geographical terminology and then apply / demonstrate using photos of actual places. Key ideas and content… We can describe places using geographical language. It is more effective to use the correct key terms and descriptive language. To differentiate… Pass the sheets round on a timer, with the challenge of either adding more key terms or improving existing ones. Stick the sheets on the wall around the room, give each student a different key term to look for. Students go round the room. Insist on certain terms being applied. To extend… Insist on a description of features which aren’t necessarily visible. Students find their own photos and analyse them. Peer assessment. There are some tricky terms in the key terms activity, use to stretch students. To assess… Discussion points. The work produced. Peer assessment opportunity.

Urban issues and challenges - The emergence of megacities

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography - Unit 2 Section A - Urban issues and challenges - The emergence of megacities An activity packed and differentiated lesson teaching students about the characteristics of a megacity, their growth and their location. Included is a wide range of resources which can be applied in many ways. Whole lesson > Key concept starter > Discussion prompts > Key ideas > Map/distribution activity > Graph skills > Photo analysis > Exam style questions > Class discussion > Learning evaluation > Summary activity > Homework > Lesson plan > Teacher notes > Fully resourced > Visually attractive and ready to teach! The main aim is… To teach students about the characteristics of a mega city, their location, their growth (and reasons for it) To link to key concepts such as urbanisation and migration. Make it clear ‘world cities’ share many of the same characteristics – it’s the population, the magic number, which makes it a mega city. Statistics and population data vary. For example, Paris has a population a little over 2 million, however, in some figures a wider area is taken into account. Make this clear to the students. The emphasis should really be on the growth (the emergence) of megacities in NEE’s. Key ideas and content… Mega cities have a population of over 10 million people. They have similar characteristics – similar to those of world cities. Their emergence is mostly in Asia and more recently, Africa. There is a pattern! The number of mega cities has grown significantly over the last 50 years. Rural-urban migration and natural increase are driving rapid urbanisation in LIC/NEE’s. To differentiate… Several activities have been differentiated already – use sheets as appropriate. Discuss and model the exam style questions. Allow independent / group thinking time for the discussion. Provide the key terms as a checklist when answering questions. To extend… Students can add information / data to the maps. The data could be presented in different ways. Actual examples can be added to the photo analysis activity. Students could develop their own mark scheme for the exam style questions. To assess… Use the exam style questions as an assessment opportunity. Assess the distribution description to assess distribution questions.
