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

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.

All resources are included, along with a lesson plan and teacher notes. The main aim is… For students to learn the features of, and differences between linear, nucleated and dispersed settlement shapes. Key ideas and content… Nucleated, linear and dispersed are all settlement shapes. Settlements grow in different shapes for different reasons. Nucleated settlements will grow around a feature. Linear settlements will grow along a feature. To differentiate… There is differentiation in the lesson. Provide the essential words for the summary activity. Students could work on the photo analysis together. To extend… Use the superstar activities. Get the maps out / photocopy and cut out to pick out actual settlement shapes. To assess… The photo analysis and the summary activity allow progress to be demonstrated and assessed. The homework could also be assessed.
