Evaluation, evaporation, preparation..that's about it!

Categories: Population, Rural Land Resources, Hydrosphere, Advanced Higher
I was really quite apprehensive about a whole double period of critical essay writing with Advanced Higher on Friday, but in hindsight, I am really glad we never took the option to split the period. I felt that towards the end of the period, most of you were appreciating how to evaluate a source, and we had some real breakthroughs in terms of the thinking behind your writing. I am hoping to finish this tomorrow, before setting some more as homework.
Last day with Higher, we used Google Earth to draw some watersheds and identify some drainage basins. I thought this was quite successful, but I'm happy to put the images up with a little explanation should anyone require it-Please comment here if you do. There is some work to finish, and then I'm going to go back to look at the water balance. We'll watch some video here to give an illustration, as I have found people struggle with this sometimes.
S4 started a Population mindmap on Thursday. I am hoping to use freemind to let class members contribute to a class mindmap for consolidation of the work you're doing in groups. I am looking at ways to attach weblinks to this. In the meantime, you could look at my Population links, revisit this recent post and activity or search 'Population' in the sidebar. Hope this suffices for now. Thanks to Flickr user arenamontanus for the Population image above, and sln member hre99 for the link.
Lastly, a link for Rural Land Resources from Val Vannet's Higher Blog . This could be really useful for you in supplementing your reading, a key development need in most of the target setting exercises.

I think the whole geodonn thing is good because you can use it for revision for all the things weve done previously. But.. its like realy hard to remember all the difernt things like pbwikis n stuff so if you could like remind us evry now n then what the password n actual sights are that would be good :D or just write them on this so you can use them as a link.. But overall is good. :)

Glad the blog has been of use to you both, I think you are right about the wiki, and creating a link you don't have to search for all the time (in the sidebar). I'll do this.
The games can take up a lot of time, no? I think I spend a little too much time on them...
