Coastal Management

Coastal Management

This lesson aims to allow students to gain an understanding of the different ways to manage the coast. It looks at a range of soft and hard engineering strategies, and encourages students to think about the advantages and disadvantages of these strategies, before debating which of these would be the best for a particular coast (this lesson uses Southend but this can easily be changed for a different location). By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following key questions: - What are the different types of coastal management? - Which coastal management is the best and why?

Coastal Assessment

Coastal Assessment

This lesson is an assessment based around coasts, designed for year 8's. This includes the assessment and all associated resources, in addition to a marking grid, and the feedback lesson, which also includes action points sheets (these will allow students to improve on certain areas, based on the weaknesses in their test). NOTE - MGO1 is equivalent to the AO1 and AO2 objectives at GCSE. These have then been broken down into what I expect year 8 students to be able to achieve.

Coastal Fieldwork

Coastal Fieldwork

This lesson aims to allow students to conduct fieldwork based around the coast. This lesson contains 3 individual lessons: Lesson 1 is a preparation lesson, where students think about what could be investigated at a coastal location, what methods and sampling could be used, in addition to coming up with a hypothesis. This lesson would need to be followed by conducting the fieldwork in a coastal location. Included in this lesson is an activity book that can used at a coastal location with groynes. Lesson 2 is an assessment based lesson which gets students to present their findings, analyse their findings, before drawing conclusions of their findings. Lesson 3 is then the feedback element where students are encouraged to improve their fieldwork skills. NOTE - This lesson is based around Southend but is easily adaptable for any location with a groyne. Also note that MG03 is based around AO4 on the GCSE specification, but this has been reduced to what is expected from a year 8 student.
