Settlements

Settlements

(1)
Within the lesson, notes have been written underneath slides to guide teaching and learning - they are just some of the ways I approach the lesson with students. It also tells you which activities are guided towards higher ability and which are for lower - as I have included both within the lessons. Lesson 1 - Settlements – How do people decided where to live? Here students identify why settlements develop in certain areas and what features attract people to a new area. Students identify the advantages and disadvantages for 2 settlement sites and come to their own conclusion as to which site is the best location. A marking criteria for a peer or self assessment has been provided. Begin to look at settlement functions and the 3 different way settlements grow - nucleated, linear and dispersed. Lesson 2 - Settlement Functions and Hierarchy Here students look at settlement hierarchy and how settlements are ranked in terms of size. Students look at the good and bad points for each settlement - gives students the opportunity to begin to think about the services/facilities/issues each one is facing. We look at the 4 main functions as to why settlements have developed in the past and present and as a result the services that are found in villages, towns and cities. Lesson 3 - Settlement Growth Here students working on their key map skills by looking at changing images of cities growing over time - students can describe the change and trend of what they are seeing. The key task in this lesson is to construct a choropleth map for today’ population broken down by borough so they can compare it to the choropleth changing map from 1801. Full breakdown and success criteria to show students how to do this - data for population provided and also blank London borough map. Look at the push and pull factors as to reasons why people are attracted to some areas or forced to leave. Lesson 4 - Land Use in Towns and Cities Look at land use maps and see how an area can have many uses - residential, industrial, open space, public areas etc. Students match up key terms which are associated with this particular lesson. Students focus on the Burgess model - use 5 colours to identify the areas on the model, then use the handouts to fill in the handout by writing down key information about why this area exists and features found here. Couple of independent tasks here that can be used as consolidation tasks or as homework sheets. Questions based on the worksheet information - answers are in red and can be used for self or peer assessment. Lesson 5 - CBD Problems Students look at population density in the city over time and how it has changed. Questions to support. Problems faced in the CBD - Higher ability tasks and lower ability tasks provided. Extended writing task with sentence starters and stretch options. There is an assessment criteria for marking.

Mapping Crime in London

Mapping Crime in London

(0)
Here is a lesson created to map the crime in London by Borough and an assessment to support. We used Acton as this our school for when we looked at crime in our local area, but you can use any area. We had police officers come and give a presentation about the local area on which crimes are more common and when - e.g. phone theft is more common between 3 and 5pm due to students using them on the streets etc. Very beneficial and the students loved this talk. Here students choose 1 offence from the table and use this information to create a choropleth map to show different crime figures for London boroughs. There is a slide with a success criteria giving a guide on how to create a choropleth map and what is needed.

The Cold War

A small SOW based around the start of the Cold war and analyzing reasons for the origins. I also sometimes use the 20th Century World History textbook to support. However, this is not the main stimulus for lessons. I try to move away and use more interactive and independent tasks. Lesson 1 - Looks at Communism and Capitalism. Examines what the traits of each one is and some of the advantages and disadvantages for each . Students come to their own conclusion which on they think is best. Lesson 2 - Looks at the Berlin Crisis. What happened? How did the blockade and airlift affect relations between Russia and USA, do this through source analysis: videos, images etc. Lesson 3 - Berlin Wall: Creation and Collapse - Students look at why the Berlin Wall was created and how it affected the lives of people either side. Look at escape attempts by Peter Fechter and Conrad Schumann. Begin to assess the reasons why the wall was brought down.
