Email Uvhsgeography@gmail.com if you can’t access.

I have started the Google Drive links for Unit 3 and Unit 4 pre-release.

Both folders can be found through THIS LINK.

Please make sure you add  research you conduct over the Easter break to the folders. This could be PDF’s, maps, web-links, videos, documents.

There are two master documents with the questions on and a few notes. Please continue to add and annotate details and links to these questions.

Year 13 – links to resources and essay question

You should all have received a link to the files on the Energy, Superpower and Cold Environment topics that are on the Drive. Let me know if you cannot access them.

Please complete the 15 marker below for Friday’s lesson:

Explain how theories, such as Dependency Theory and World Systems Theory, can contribute to an understanding of changing patterns of global power. (15)

*Tsunamis only happen near plate boundaries, right?
The North of Britain was hit by a tsunami 8,200 years ago and it could happen again.

*The El Nino atmosphere/ocean phenomena has started for 2015…. We think. Worth watching this develop as it can have significant impacts on local climate.

*The Guardian will be running a number of articles over the next few months that have a focus on climate change. Naomi Klein’s article is worth a read

*The BBC has flown a drone through the Crossrail tunnels one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe. Impressive footage!
