Year 9 Top Trumps AssessmentPresentation Transcript
Year 9 Risky Places Spring Term Assessment Risky Places Top Trumps
Follow links from the school Intranet ‘Geography Page’ and download the ppt file.
Read through the ‘Defining the 5 game risk ratings’ and use the 5 risk factors as headings for your research (don’t forget to save evidence of your research)
Decide what rank to put by each factor (0-100). You will then explain your choices in your written explanations. Does this on the PC by adding text into the spaces.
Add an image to each card.
Make sure you save your progress. Print the A4 sheet when fully completed- keep it in black/grey and white.
See your teacher if you are having trouble with ICT- paper copies are available if needed.
Level Criteria The Task … create 6 Top Trump cards to be added to a new edition of the game called “Risky World”. You must use your knowledge of hazards (flooding, hurricanes, crime, tsunamis, etc) and specific examples. You will have to analyse each risky place/ hazard you choose for each card in detail. Objectives: * To select and describe 6 risky places/hazards found around the world * To explain their impact on people and the environment * To investigate your chosen risky place/hazard and forecast future changes * To evaluate each risky place/hazard by making decisions about the scale of risk and to justify your choices
All of the above but also….
Include views of people as source of evidence
Evidence based conclusions
All research edited and put in own words
Identify steps for improvement and plan carefully
All of the above but also…..
Evaluate fully your reasons for ranking each risk factor on the cards
All statements and ideas are backed up with evidence from your research
Explain how levels of development in a country can affect the impact of risks/hazards
Discuss in detail any implications of changes in the future to certain risky places
Select carefully maps, diagrams and images
Extend the task by posing further questions
Correct geographical language
Reach some conclusions about issues
Select evidence carefully
Good use of ICT
Used my own knowledge and understanding and supported my ideas with research
Given reasons for the human and physical processes taking place in an area
Identify patterns in the distribution of risks around the world
Explain how risks/hazards can be managed
Used geographical questions to help my investigation
Correct key words and terms
Researched and used evidence
Mainly told what to do by teacher
Suitable use of ICT
Described and explained in basic terms why risks occur at the chosen 6 places
Recognised and described some physical processes (e.g. plate tectonics)
Shown an understanding about how people can cause and manage risks
Discussed different peoples opinions
Basic use of ICT to present work
Used some geographical words
Used maps (local to global)
Follow simple instructions
Compared and described the human and physical features of the risky place/hazard
Used some real examples of these hazards
Given some views about environ environmental changes in the future
3 SKILLS I have used are…. I will have…. LEVEL
Defining the 5 game Risk Ratings
This means how often this risk occurs. For example some volcanoes are less frequent, maybe every decade or so, whereas flooding is more frequent as it may take place in certain countries every year.
0 = less frequent, 100= more frequent…..if a risk is likely to take place more often it is more of a risk to people and the environment.
This is about how easy it is to monitor and predict this risk and the ability to warn people in advance. This will be based around scientific research and will be affected by how rich a country is and the physical/human processes.
0 = difficult to predict, 100= easy to predict…if a risk can be predicted then the impacts can be reduced.
This is about damage to people, the environment or the economy of the area affected. Don’t forget that damage can be short or long term.
0 = causes less damage, 100 = severe damage…the more risk a damage causes the more likely it will be studied and measures put in place to protect people.
This is very important. Some countries are more developed than others (LEDC – MEDC) and will be able to cope better with risks. Decide whether the impact of your chosen risk will affect a rich or poor country.
0 = LEDC less able to cope, 100 = MEDC able to cope….this is linked to ability of that country to predict and prepare for the risk as well as reduce the effects of the risk. Remember that MEDC countries provide aid to LEDCs.
Are the impacts of this risk going to get worse in the future, possibly as a result of climate change or population growth. Do some research and decide. It may be that this risk will be less severe in the future as technology is developed to cope with it.
0 = little/no future change expected, 100 = will get worse due to other factors….it is important to consider changes in the future so that governments can prepare. This will need research!
Reminder! What do I need to hand in? The six cards on A4 (images, ranking and name of risk) Evidence of your research. Ideas, key facts, mind maps, web links, newspaper cuttings etc. A full explanation of why you chose the risky place/hazard and why you chose the ratings on each card. Follow the level criteria carefully! (aim for 1 page per card – with diagrams, maps and images).
