Year 13 Inequality Homework

Hi Y13,

Your homework is to make notes under the following headings using pages 39 – 54 (the actual pages on the document are 35 – 50):

https://www.oxfamamerica.org/static/media/files/even-it-up-inequality-oxfam.pdf

  1. How is extreme inequality a barrier to poverty reduction?
  2. How does extreme inequality undermine growth?
  3. How does inequality hinder poverty-reducing potential of growth?
  4. How does economic inequality compound gender inequality?
  5. How does economic inequality drive inequalities in health, education and life chances?
  6. How does extreme inequality threaten society?

This is a really interesting read even for such a small part of the Migration, Identity & Sovereignty topic so please read more if you get the chance! We will be discussing the answers to the questions above on Monday.

Here is the full 76 page document if you need to catch up on any notes/want to add extra detail.

Please remember to identify who the stakeholders are for each ‘decision’ and highlight the strategies to say whether they are business as usual, sustainable exploitation, sustainable management or comprehensive conservation – at the end, see which strategy they have used the most and think about why this might be.

You know where to find me if you need help.

Additional Exam Technique Sessions

Hello Y12 & Y13,

Mr Reader & myself are offering additional sessions on exam technique in Geography on a Thursday P4 in S4 (my teaching room). The proposed timetable for between now and Easter can be found below.

Timetable for exam technique practice

These are not compulsory sessions, however if you have struggled to get to grips with the exam technique at A Level (12 & 20 mark questions) then we would strongly recommend you attend. We will be asking for a list of people who wish to attend at the start of each week.

If you have other lessons at this time, we will make the resources from each session available on here. We are willing to mark any work you complete as part of these additional sessions 🙂

Any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

Year 12 Glaciation – Homework

Hi all

12D (triple Monday group), you are being set this homework tomorrow – use the link at the bottom of the document to answer the questions. This can be done on the document and then printed to go in your folders – I will explain more tomorrow.

12A – after missing 2 lessons last week due to me unable to get in on Thursday morning because of the weather and the early closure, you actually aren’t being set this homework until next week. Please make sure you acknowledge this is here though – I would save the document to your own drive as soon as possible so you don’t ‘lose’ this post!!

Advance warning Y13!

Tomorrow we are looking at tensions over territory with a focus on Russia’s western border and the South & East China Seas. However, it is noted in the textbook about tensions on the Pakistan/India border and so there is an article below to get you started on some additional reading. I will remind you in the lesson tomorrow, but make sure you complete this task in your own time to help with those ‘assess’ style questions – case studies are important!!

In addition, here are some links (this list is not exhaustive) to read further into tensions on Russia’s western border and the South & East China Seas.

Year 13 NEA Info

Hi all

We will go through the presentation in lesson on Monday, but I would highly recommend you have a look at this before hand. There are useful links in the PowerPoint and I have included a very useful set of sentence starters that are well worth a look.

Reminder that you should be coming to lessons next week with the beginnings of data presentation.
