I have been meaning to highlight programmes by Dr Ian Stewart, pictured, since I saw 'Journeys from the Centre of the Earth' last year. He is now showing documentaries on the Ring of Fire (find out more here
) which are useful for s4 (Environmental Hazards) and s2 (Japan, Earth Forces). I am hoping that these will be repeated at some point on BBC 4, but in case not, I am trying to get a hold of the excellent episode on Japan. My s2 are working on their leaflet introduction to Japan, and we are about to look at the Physical Geography, so this will come in very handy.
I am also toying with the idea of setting up a seperate blog to display your work. We are getting some extra PC's in the department, and there will be a lot of opportunities for presenting work through ICT. This will be particularly useful for the new s1. My experience of previous open nights tells me that parents are always very keen to see examples of excellence, and this might present a continuously updated method of doing so.
Tomorrow, I am doing coastal landforms with Higher. Students are doing a little peer assessment revision exercise on this to see what they remember from last year and I will also adapt Tony Cassidy' spreadsheet
to start building up our glossary. s3 are doing some time last week on land use conflicts in glaciated uplands. With s4, I will probably do some dominoes on the Paris Industry case study to see where we are at before hopefully finishing the work and moving onto the Call Centres Case Study.
