Darfur is Dying

Categories: Population, Development and Health, s1 and s2, Urban
Higher finishing the Gastarbeiter case study today, and then want to look at a forced migration. We have a video on Clickview which shows Rwanda, but wondered about using Hotel Rwanda , or parts of it, as it is very powerful. Powerful too, is the online game mentioned in the post title, click on the image and see for yourself what life is like in a refugee camp. For supported study, I want to concentrate on exam technique and we can hopefully use the Higher wiki, as well as having a look at the BBC's excellent population pages . Speaking of the BBC, there is an excellent link to Barrios in Caracas , which would provide an excellent homework, perhaps on the blog or wiki for s4 where we could compare and contrast this with Mumbai.
s2 are getting a little tutorial on how to make movies in Moviemaker, topics are earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and fold mountains, individual case studies acceptable. I have been trying to think of appropriate tunes, but for volcanoes I can't get 'Firestarter' by the Prodigy and 'Go with the Flow' by Queens of the Stone Age out of my head, and on reflection, I don't think either would be appropriate for any movie showing scenes of carnage! Any help from your peers, elders and others by suggesting tunes either to me in class or by posting a comment here would be most welcome.
Finally, doing my Wednesday morning behaviour support spot tomorrow, some interesting ideas for students personal planning and self assessment from my regular stint here, which I will try to write about and also implement my own take on these later.
