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.

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!
