3.5 student info 2013

  1. 1. 3.5 (91430) Internal Background information Conduct geographic research with consultation
  2. 2. Level 1: Carry out and present directed geographic researchWhat it means:We tell you what to collectWe tell you the research questionsWe tell you how to present itHow does this AS differ acrossthe Levels?
  3. 3. Carry out and present guided geographic researchWhat it means:We tell you the research questionsWe tell you how you can collect itYou sort out how to present your informationLevel 2
  4. 4. Conduct geographic research with consultationWhat it means:You sort out your research questionsYou decide how you will collect dataYou decide how you will present the informationConsultation means the teacher cannot tell you what to do – however you can ask the teacher questions.Level 3
  5. 5. What are the Criteria?There is only one :Conduct comprehensive geographic research with consultation.
  6. 6. . Conduct geographic research with consultation involves: • identifying the aim of the research • planning the research • collecting and recording data relevant to the aim of the research • presenting a map(s) and statistical and/or visual data • analysing findings • providing a conclusion(s) that relates to the aim of the research • providing an evaluation of the research process, and how this affects the validity of the research findings.Carry out geographic research withconsultation means ;
  7. 7. Select and discuss geographicconcepts relevant to the researchtopic and /or findingsApply two of the KGCs to your research topic and/or findings somewhere.Do you remember the KGCs?Be clear that you must relate it to your research not just beaches / Muriwai / St Leonards.
  8. 8. • critically analysing findings – how good or bad were they• critically evaluating the research process by building on the detailed evaluation of the process through a discussion of alternative research methods and their implications.Evaluate the research processand/or findings
  9. 9. The criteria has different needs for eachachievement level:ACHIEVEMENT MERIT EXCELLENCEConduct geographic research with • effectively presenting a • critically analysingconsultation involves: map(s) and statistical and findings• identifying the aim of the research visual data • critically evaluating• planning the research • analysing findings, in the research process detail by building on the• collecting and recording data • providing a detailed evaluationrelevant to the aim of the research• presenting a map(s) and statistical conclusion(s), in detail, through a discussion of that relates to the aim of alternative researchand/or visual data the research methods and their• analysing findings implications. • evaluating in detail the• providing a conclusion(s) that research process andrelates to the aim of the research how this affects the• providing an evaluation of the validity of theresearch process, and how this research findings and/oraffects the validity conclusions.of the research findings.
  10. 10. Ifyou are aiming for good marks then check the marking rubric in your booklet. This tells you what is expected.To get Excellence it must be in all sections. The Whole Task is marked holistically.Allthe questions are given in the booklet so prepare yourself for this.
  11. 11. So what is the context of ourresearch?The aim is to choose a research question that compares Muriwai Beach with St Leonard’s Beach.This is easy as one is a low energy beach and the other high energy
  12. 12. The Time Frame for this: Step 1: Muriwai Booklets (done) Step 2: Planning (today) Step 3: Collection of Data (next 2 lessons) Step 4: Background Step 5: Write Up 1 (Task 1) (3 lessons) Step 6: Background Step 7: Write up 2 (Task 2) (2 lessons) Last week of term
  13. 13. 1. Decide on a group of 4-5 of you. They must be in your Geo class.2. In your group work out your research questions3. Work out what you are going to collect, how and what everyone’s job is4. Work out how you will present your data.Today’s Task is to do the firststage of planning in thebooklet.
  14. 14. Points to remember:You have already collected data from Muriwai – so base it around thatIt must be measurableIt must allow results you can discuss in depth. Think about what we have covered in class.Think about presentation methods also.Your Research Question:
  15. 15. Your Research Questionshould be based on:Differences in ElementsDifferences in FeaturesDifferences in Processes
  16. 16. So what did we collect?1. ElementsWaves: Wavelength, wave period, wave height, sediment in swash and backwash.Sediment: Type, % of each, where found.Climate: Temperature, wind speed, wind direction.Plants: Plant type, adaptations, patterns.
  17. 17. 2. FeaturesHeadland: Field SketchesBeach: Beach slopeDunes: Dune Height and shape
  18. 18. 3. ProcessesWave Erosion: Observations and map of wave refraction, evidence of erosion on the headland through field sketchesWave Transport:LSD measurementsSaltation: ObservationsAeolian Deposition: Dune height and shape, density of vegetation growth.
  19. 19. What are the problems withthese questions?What is the difference between Muriwai and St Leonard’s beach?How does the rate of saltation differ between Muriwai and St Leonard’s beach?The difference between the beach profile is the result of the waves.
  20. 20. Today: Complete the planning section in your group. Give this in for approval.Next Lesson in Geo: Collect the field equipment at the beginning of the lesson. Get your raw data. Your Teacher is available for “consultation”.We will go over the needs for the write up before it is done. Keep the information book safely for reference.So where to next?
