[9 + 3 SPaG marks] This relates to the specification bullet point in the Changing Economic World section for AQA GCSE geography: Some LICs and NEEs are experiencing rapid economic development which leads to significant social, environmental and cultural change. A case study of one LIC or NEE to illustrate: the effects of economic development on quality of life for the population. The case study is India. The worksheet and presentation was designed to be delivered during an intervention session with students lasting approximately 30 minutes, however it can easily be adapted to suit a full 60 minute lesson. The worksheet begins with giving students information about how quality of life has changed for many but also reasons why it hasn’t for everyone. The accompanying PowerPoint will enable the teacher to summarise this and provide visuals for students. Students shouldthen read and highlight the information before creating an infographic summary on the worksheet - this teaches them a good revision technique. Students are then required to write a 9 mark exam answer and there is a structure strip to support lower ability students. If you have a full lesson, you could then give students the tasks on the back of the A3 worksheet and ask them to use the mark scheme to self assess their answer. There is also space for them to recreate their infographic using retrival practice. Finally, there is a list of other exam questions based around case studies in the Changing Economic World section.
