How do Human Processes Interact to Influence and Change Landscapes and Environments?

Key Stage 3 Aged 11-14
Case study – Television Tourism

What impact does the filming of TV soaps have on people, place and the environment?

This topic has been designed for Key Stage 3.  It links with the human geography aspect of the National Curriculum which requires consideration of urbanisation and an understanding of how human processes interact to influence and change landscapes and environments.

It looks at the filming of TV programmes such as the ‘soaps’ and the impact of filming on people, place and the environment.

This resource is based on the TV programme ‘Neighbours’ which although set in Australia, can be linked to the personal experience of the learner considering themselves as neighbours.

Fieldwork activities could be designed to link with this topic and a wealth of programmes can be considered and referred to such as Emmerdale, East Enders and Coronation Street.

All of these programmes have much to offer geographically, Coronation Street, for example, is a typical inner city street with distinct lack of front garden, garages etc whereas Emmerdale depicts a rural community.

So what impact DOES television tourism have on people, place and the environment?

AQA ENTRY LEVEL CERTIFICATE MATHEMATICS CD-ROM, SPECIFICATION (AQA – 5930)

This resource has been extensively revised and rewritten to cover the new AQA Entry Level Certificate Mathematics, (AQA – 5930), for first examination in 2017.

It follows the format of the previous editions but there are changes to the content and the outcomes expected, to match the new ELC Mathematics 5930 specifications. As well as additional content some of the outcomes have been modified to bring the examination into line with the new National Curriculum Mathematics courses. Most of these changes are in the first three components, placing a greater emphasis upon number skills. The remaining components are similar to the previous specification but also have modified outcomes.

A more varied questioning style within the resource is used which will help to familiarise students with the style of questioning used in the ‘Externally Set Tests’ provided by AQA. Some questions require a simple ‘justification’ of an answer suggesting a need for evidence of ‘working’ which has not been necessary in some of the previous specifications. Elements of Functional Maths and Problem solving, all at an appropriate level, are included to match the changes in the specification and again this will help to prepare students for the ‘Externally Set Tests’. The worksheets for all three levels have been written and clearly annotated to match the new syllabus. A student may benefit from working through all of the worksheets in a given component but when time is short, successful completion of the Level 3 sheets will ensure coverage of the necessary outcomes. The resource has been written based on the new assessment outcomes listed in the syllabus and all worksheets are clearly annotated to indicate the component and outcome(s) covered.

This volume covers all 8 of the components in the new specification, at all three levels. The collection has been developed so that it can be used in a very flexible manner, catering for the needs of individuals and groups. The task sheets can be used singly, grouped together in booklets or bound as a whole resource depending on your need and preferred way of working. Answer sheets and a student record are included to support teacher assessment, recording and reporting. The resource is being widely used by schools and has received considerable feedback for its clear, easy to use structure, ability to develop individual skills and test students on all areas of the new specification.

20th Century European History

This pack is specifically aimed at EAL/SEN students who are studying history at Key Stage 3 as it allows the teacher to provide differentiated work in a self-contained worksheet containing clear and concise step by step instructions.

The worksheets are both accessible and challenging, but also designed to provide a secure basis of knowledge of the subject matter with definitions of subject specific key words.

The time period begins in 1914 with the origins of World War One, and goes on to cover all aspects of WWI and its aftermath.

It continues with the inter-war years including the Russian Revolution and the rise of the dictators and concludes with all aspects of WWII including technology, the home front and the holocaust.

The drawings, photos, diagrams and cartoons illustrate a variety of key points in a visually exciting and imaginative way providing a wealth of information on the period for students with a limited knowledge of the English language.

The activities range from tried and tested techniques which include closed exercises, heads & tails matching, sentence starters, newspaper templates, flow diagrams, drawing and labelling. There are also novel ways for lower ability students to search and synthesise information such as highlighted reading for meaning exercises.

Decades of mixed ability teaching in inner city schools and a keen understanding of pedagogy have shaped the design of this flexible resource which is devised to make the day to day teaching easier by being simple to photocopy, modify and deploy.

Dans Ma Chambre

Are you tired of creating your own PowerPoint presentations, only to find that you are forced to use uninspiring cartoons or internet images to convey your messages?  These images are often just not quite right.  Well, no more!  Our presentations use authentic resources in their proper French context.  These particular resources should be used initially with 11-12 year olds during their first year of learning French but then can subsequently be used as a revision tool for older students if necessary.

The presentation should be used to teach learners to describe their bedroom and also to use various (5) prepositions to say where items are in relation to other furniture.  These materials are to be used within the context of learning about the house/home in French.

The resources are multi-faceted in that they are used interactively from the beginning of the PowerPoint presentation to teach the required vocabulary to the class in a fun way.  Students work in pairs, individually and as a whole class throughout the lesson using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic activities to engage and motivate them.  The pace can be fast or slowed down as necessary for the students to assimilate the required lexis and can be used equally well with SEN learners.

They will enjoy the variety of activities, the competition, 2 written exercises and use the 4 skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing in this lesson.  These resources have been developed by an experienced language teacher, used with a class and have consequently been proven to be effective, fun and engaging.

COASTAL EROSION RESOURCE – KS3

The KS3 National Curriculum requires an understanding, through the use of detailed place-based exemplars, of key processes in physical geography relating to coasts. This means an understanding of how human and physical processes interact to influence and change landscapes, and how human activity relies on effective functioning of natural systems.

This Coastal Erosion Resource looks at erosion at Beachy Head on the south coast and forms an enquiry. The question to be answered is

‘We wish to consult with you on the future of our home. What should we do?’

The question relates to the old lighthouse ‘La Belle Tout’ which has been turned into a guest house. Due to coastal erosion the lighthouse was on the verge of collapsing into the sea, as the coastal management strategy along this stretch of coast is ‘to do nothing’.

Both coastal erosion processes and coastal management strategies are drawn upon. There is a clear link between human and physical processes as the bed and breakfast guest house provides employment and the impact of physical processes means the guest house could be washed away due to coastal erosion.

The Crucible: A Guide and Abridged Text CD-ROM

The Crucible: A Guide and Abridged Text CD-ROM

English language learners and students with special needs struggle to meet curricular expectations in our schools.  They are often expected to read literature that is well beyond their English proficiency levels.

The challenge can be overwhelming.  These students require appropriate resources to help them.  Eals and special needs students need a bridge between the original texts and a text that they can comprehend.

The adapted version of The Crucible for ages 14-18, provides the connection to the original text, permitting English language learners and students with special needs to perform in mainstream academic literature classes.

The original text appears beside the adapted version, promoting student comprehension.  Throughout, vocabulary is highlighted in the original text and definitions are underlined in the adaptation.

A summary of the plot, characters, and setting introduces each act.  Page numbers or the original text corresponds to the adaptation, allowing students to keep pace with the class and later, to find quotations to augment writing assignments.

The adapted version lends itself well to oral productions, permitting Eals and other students to practice their intonation and pronunciation, at an appropriate English proficiency level.

In short, Eals can learn reading, writing, speaking and thinking skills, in mainstream classes, by using adapted resources. What could be better motivation for students to actively participate in mainstream classes!

To Kill a Mockingbird – An Abridged Text

To Kill a Mockingbird was written by Harper Lee and is a famous American novel about a girl called Scout Finch. The novel is set in the 1930s in the U.S.A. One of the most important themes in To Kill a Mockingbird is racism.

In the novel an Afro-American is accused of raping a white lady. It is clear that he is innocent but because he is black he is found guilty. To Kill a Mockingbird is set in a town called Maycomb in the southern states of the U.S.A.

During the 1930s racial discrimination was a big problem in the U.S.A. Black people were poor and they were not treated fairly by most white people. Scout and her family are different. They treat black people with respect. In the 1930s the law did not help Afro-Americans. Many had to go to prison for crimes they did not commit. In to Kill a Mockingbird an innocent black man has to go to prison.

Quite often the content of the National Curriculum can be intractable for pupils who speak English as a second language.  The teaching of English can now be made wholly accessible using these resources.  Set texts have been effectively differentiated so that they can be understood by pupils who may find the original versions difficult.

The texts chosen have been widely used in English and Special Needs classrooms and promote the development of reading, writing and listening skills.

They have proven to be very popular because of the accessibility. At the end of each section there is a series of stimulating exercises, which are designed to enhance language acquisition.  The texts available are studied for the Certificate of Achievement, in years 9-11.  As teachers, we know that understanding the text not only activates interest but, ultimately, that all pupils can obtain encouraging grades in their Certificates of Achievement.

How to get Top Marks in Edexcel French IGCSE Writing Questions

The essay writing questions might seem daunting at first but this is one section of the paper where you, as the candidate, are in control. As long as you answer the questions and cover all the bullet points, you can decide what to write.

This is an easy way to score marks, and the writing sections of the paper count for 30 marks (10 for the shorter writing task and 20 for the longer writing task) which is 25% of the total marks. If you do well in this part of the paper it can make all the difference in being able to move up the grade boundaries.

This pack will explain what is required for the two writing questions for the Edexcel French IGCSE specification. Sample questions will be looked at, with tips for essay techniques, followed by sample essays, with examiners’ comments. Writing tasks from each of the topic areas will be looked at, for both the shorter and longer writing tasks.

The five topic areas are:

1. Home and Abroad
2. Education and Employment
3. House, home and daily routine
4. The modern world and the environment
5. Social activities, fitness and health
