This presentation examines the case for Fair Trade as a means of closing the development gap.

It contains everything you need to teach a seven lesson unit on some of the big issues in the USA, in China and in Russia including immigration, communism, the Cold War, population control, the fight to control the Arctic Ocean and so on. There is even a lesson on Donald Trumps Immigration Policy. There is an assessment available separately on this site.

(0)
This presentation covers the different types of soft engineering that are used to minimise the impact of flooding in the UK. It covers washlands and river monitoring, education and floodplain zoning. There is a group work/GIS exercise in this presentation and a feature that I have called ‘Fieldwork Focus’ in which students are encouraged to consider why Uttoxeter might be vulnerable to flooding and what they recommend is done about it. The presentation features some striking images and straightforward tasks and questions, too.

This is presentation Number Two in the unit 'Migration and Identity'. It explores the difference between voluntary and forced migration with unusual examples.

Students are encouraged to consider the push and pull factors at play in both these examples.

It presents a table of the different types of aid with examples before going on to look at one long-term aid project in greater detail - the Nurturing Change Project in Narok County in South-West Kenya. Students are asked to consider the benefits of the project, specifically how it might help to close the Development Gap across Kenya. The presentation also features a WorldMapper map showing global patterns of maternal mortality. There are a number of tasks and useful images in this presentation.

The United Kingdom on the World Stage - AQA GCSE

(0)
This presentation looks at the changing role of the UK on the world stage. It starts with an image of a recent G7 Summit - can the students recognise the flags and the leaders? It then considers what the UK does to hold its own in the world, for example by exerting some political and cultural influence etc. It then considers the value or otherwise of being a member of the EU and the Commonwealth of nations. Plenty of room for lively debate here and no shortage of questions and interesting graphics.

This is the first in a series of lessons that I am writing under the heading ‘Geography at Christmas’ over the next few weeks.
