Issues with Issues

Categories: Advanced Higher, Rural Land Resources, Hydrosphere, s1 and s2
I have had a rethink about Advanced Higher tomorrow after looking back at where I was last year. By this time, we were well down the road with our issues essays and had, I think, completed the issues NAB. This week therefore, I'm going to dedicate our time to doing just this. Tomorrow, I'm going to do a quick tutorial about scholar and google alerts as mentioned a few posts ago, and then I'm going to spend some time with individuals sorting through what you've got. By the end of the week, I'll be looking for what you're chosen issue is, what sources you are using and a very brief summary of the viewpoints. I'm going to expect much more of this to be done in students own time this year as I felt last year it became too much of a classroom exercise -there's too much to do to give over that amount of time again, I think.
Higher have a small bit to do to end rural land resources, and then It's straight onto the Hydrosphere, The Hydrological Cycle and memories of last year's inspection (doing the exact same lessons at the time the inspectors walked into my room). We'll be mapping from memory with a follow up task on Tuesday. Some good stuff here for your revision of this topic when the time comes.
S2 have anEarth Forces assessment-hope you have remembered, and s1 are still looking at how developed Brazil is. On a personal note, I really need to post some of our work to our link school, so this will be taking priority tomorrow. See you all in ten and a half hours :-)
