KS3 Geography Lockdown Global Development Project - home schooling

(2)
This resource is designed to last for 12 lessons and be independently completed during lock down. It includes the following topics: development indicators and index, employment structure, trade, fair trade, aid, Charity:water case study. It is a single PowerPoint with instructions for the students to follow on each slide. The idea is that over the 12 lessons the PowerPoint will build up into a project that can then be submitted for teacher assessment. The lessons have differentiated tasks to stretch the more able. Each lesson/topic area can be graded using the mark scheme and AtL (attitude to learning) score, which can then be recorded in the student’s diary (these are all located on slides in the PowerPoint). Many of the resources are included at the end of the slide show, although a number of hyperlinks to websites and videos are also included. I designed this lesson for Year 9 but it could be used across KS3. I have also included a version for students who do not have access to the internet. I have tried to make this: Easy for the students to download - only one PowerPoint file. Easy for the students to follow - clear instructions on each slide Accessible - differentiated Challenging - differentiated Good Geography closely linked to what they would have been studying at school. Assessed - mark scheme for self and teacher assessment Well resourced - a range of media for research included.

Firstly, the students are given definitions of core and periphery. Next the students are given maps of a range of countries and asked to shade in where they consider the core to be.

Next the students are introduced to Friedman's development model and the stages are identified using different countries at different levels of development. After that they are introduced to Rostow's Model of development through a video clip and asked to identify countries from each stage and to classify the countries from each stage into ACs, EDCs and LIDCs. Next there is a card sort to complete to show cumulative causation, which occurs in the core. This can be reversed to show the downward spiral of deprivation, which occurs in the periphery.

This is a debate / decision making exercise and should take place over a three of lessons, two to plan and one to undertake the debate. Firstly, there are two video clips about the oil industry in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska in order to develop the students sense of place. Next, based on a geofile (website for access supplied) students should evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of oil and gas production and consumption in Prudhoe Bay. After that students are split into 4 groups. Each group is given a character card with details about their viewpoint and a writing frame. Using the writing frame and geofile students should develop a speech about their views on oil and gas production and exploration in Prudhoe Bay. This will take 2 lessons. In the third lesson the groups should give their presentations. whilst speaking sheets are provided to take notes on the viewpoints of others and writing down questions to ask them. After every speech undertake a discussion activity based on what has been said. Then debate the two key questions once everyone has spoken. Next the students will be asked to suggest compromises and work towards and agreement, before final voting. At the end pupils will be asked to complete and opinion line task for both the questions and to feedback the reasons for their opinions. To increase student engagement each student is assigned two other students to observe using the engagement tally chart, they should record the student’s engagement at 3 points in the lesson. At the end of the lesson the students can give feedback to the students that they have observed. There are also ask and answer stickers for the studnets to stick on themseves. they can take these off once the have asked/answered a question. I have added an essay question at the end of the powerpoint which could be planned in the lesson and completed for homework.
