Development lesson 1

  1. 1. What does this map represent?<br />
  2. 2. GDP - Wealth<br />
  3. 3. How is it different to this one?<br />Voters turnout…<br />
  4. 4. The Development Gap<br />Our last topic but one of the hardest!<br />
  5. 5. What does DEVELOPMENT mean?<br />Watch the video here and think about a definition….<br />What did you get?<br />
  6. 6. Definition:<br />When a country develops, it basically GETS BETTER for the people living there – their quality of life improves (e.g. their wealth, health and safety). There is no one indicator we can look at.<br />The level of development is different in different countries, e.g. the UK is more developed than Afghanistan.<br />
  7. 7. How can we measure development?<br />Development is hard to measure because it includes so many thing. However, we can use MEASURES OF DEVELOPMENT (Indicators) to compare different countries. <br />
  8. 8. Task:<br />Time to complete the table! You MUST know each of these definitions and you will be tested on them next lesson in your teams…<br />Match the definition to the measure, decide what it is a measure of and what does it do as the country develops…..<br />
  9. 9. Draw a table with the following headings….<br />
  10. 10. The answers are…<br />
  11. 11. Which are the best measures of development, in your opinion?<br />Some examples:<br />Birth rate: excellent – shows education levels as well….<br />
  12. 12. Choropleth Maps<br />Choropleth maps show how something varies between different areas using colours or patterns.<br />The darker the colour, the higher the value….<br />Use the key to work out pattern, then interpret using skills from controlled assessment…. Try the question <br />
  13. 13. Death rate: poor – most countries d.r are low <br />GNP / GNI – poor - only economic<br />
  14. 14. These measures have limitations on their own…<br />They are averages and do not show up elite groups in the population or variations within the country.<br />As a country develops, some aspects develop quicker than others.<br />SOLUTION? Using a number of measures = giving a broad economic and social picture as well as living standards (HDI)<br />
  15. 15. What is HDI?<br />HDI stands for Human Development Index<br />It is based on three variables:<br />LIFE EXPECTANCY (health)<br />LEVEL OF EDUCATION (inc. LITERACY) (education)<br />INCOME PER HEAD (wealth – GDP)<br />This covers QUALITY OF LIFE. Each variable is given a score from 1.0 (the best) to 0.0 (the poorest). <br />Look at the table / map representing HDI…. What does it show?<br />
  16. 16. HDI can:<br />Measure differences within a country as well as between countries<br />Highlight where poverty is worst<br />Act as a measure to see how far a country has developed – where there are improvements<br />Help a county to set targets – e.g. target health to improve life expectancy.<br />
  17. 17. What is the correlation (link) between different measures of development?<br />
  18. 18. A SCATTERGRAPH is used to show correlations…<br />Look at the “how to read and understand” a scatter graph sheet…<br />
  19. 19. Task: <br />Turn to page 254 – 256<br />Do Activities 2 and 3<br />Homework: Complete all questions in “past exam questions” pack.<br />
