You clearly understand what the A Level Geography course involves and how you will be assessed.
To apply your geographical knowledge and understanding to show your complex links to the world
Welcome to geography and the key features of the course including the NEA and fieldwork element
‘How global am I?’
‘Are the risks from natural hazards increasing?’
Explain why globalisation results in cultural erosion in some parts of the world.
To answer this question you will need to research two named places and find out how the culture of that place has changed due to globalisation. The culture of a country may changes due to the introduction of the internet, television, TNCs, migration, collaboration of government (e.g. EU) or the ease of travel.
When you hand in your work you will need to include your research notes
USEFUL RESOURCES TO COMPLETE THIS TASK:
Global news sources e.g. BBC, CNN, ITN
https://www.usgs.gov/ - latest earthquake and volcano data
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFjFP8uxyEM – Youtube film ‘Cultural impacts of globalisation’
OTHER PREPARATORY WORK:
Identify examples of geographical issues in everyday event.
Regularly watch news reports
Watch documentary programs based on geographical themes e.g. Blue Planet, Journey in the Danger Zone: Iraq (both on iplayer)
To create a scrap book of tectonic hazards that have occurred in the last 3 – 5 years at a variety of scales in a variety of countries. For each event answer these questions:
Where did it happen and when?
What was the cause of the hazard? Go into detail about the tectonic processes and plate movements.
What impact did it have on people and the surrounding area?
Could the hazard be prevented or managed in the future and if so how?
