Building a Case Study

Read this document on Scribd: Cairngorms

Categories: Rural Land Resources
Tomorrow, I'm retracing my steps to two years ago for the double Higher period. I'm going to spend much of the first period introducing Rural Land Resources properly, but in a way where hopefully I can draw on peoples' own experiences. I'll be asking you to think about your parents/grandparents, the type of work they did or do, how well off you (they?) reckon they are or were, how many family holidays you take and so on. This should help us profile the changes in wealth and leisure time which shall lead us in to why some areas of Britain need protection from increased visitor numbers.
In the second period, I'm going to use an assessment wordmat for the Cairngorms (above) alongside a Google Earth tour. This should help you start to build the comprehensive case study knowledge that you need to be a success in the typical exam questions given for this part of the Higher.
