Categories: Rural, Advanced Higher, Environmental Hazards
There are no real themes to tonight's post, just a collection of things for various students interests and specific topics. I have just followed a link and realised that the Lynford House Farm material that Higher were working from on Friday has been posted about elsewhere, along with many other relevant rural links. I have posted before about the Higher Geography Blog, and you should really add this to your favourites for revision purposes. It would be really useful for researching on some named examples to marry with your coursework. We'll try to finish the systems diagram from the Lynford House page before completing the rest of the rural work tomorrow. I am at some kind of crossroads with Advanced Higher just now. As far as I can see, all of the bitty coursework tasks are done, Issues and fieldwork NABs completed, the prelim is out of the way (practised past papers to death for it) and most of you have issues essay feedback which should just about get you there with this task worth 30% of the overall mark. It is really now down to you to ensure that you are a) doing your independent fieldwork, b) gathering good secondary data to support your study, and c) writing up your results/ methodology etc. It's for this reason that I'm hoping to have you out for the double period on Friday gathering data for your various topics. I also told you about a web archive that I had spotted on a site I visit and here it is. Hopefully this helps you find the pages you were after. I'm just doing some simple revision of the Volcanoes work that you should have been completing with s4- a drag and drop Anatomy of a Volcano along with a little bit of video footage to help your case study. We'll be doing earthquakes soon, pretty convenient as many of you will have heard about the earthquake in Britain last week. It's interesting to read in the article about how frequent earthquakes actually are in this part of the world. I also found this interactive link from the article, which I liked.
