2 3 feedback 2013

  1. 1. S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 3 Level 2 Geo – 2.3
  2. 2. Overall feedback  Students who did well ;  Read the question.  Used statistics  Linked the statistics to the ideas used  Understood what the words ‘contribute to’, ‘show’ and ‘characteristic’ mean.  Used Geographic Concepts  Masaai is NOT A RELIGION ! It is an ethnicity
  3. 3. Question One  Characteristics = statistics  ‘Characteristics of development’ means what is the development like, how is it measured ?  So this question was all about how developed Tanzania is.  Choose a characteristic that we have studied like L.R, I.M.R, GDP etc. then say what this shows/tell us. How has this statistic come about ?
  4. 4. Question One  Eg  Characteristic; Literacy rate  This is due to difference in access to education, this is due to the difference in money available to the families in different areas. This difference is because of their income rural/urban more money = better access to schooling so longer education so therefore Higher literacy rate. (with stats on Literacy and location included)
  5. 5. Question two  This question was about factors that CONTRIBUTE to development. In other words how the factor made the difference in development. The link is the important bit.  You had to show how the factor, through a series of steps, made the difference in development.  The difference must be a statistic eg IMR of 100/1000 vs IMR of 45/1000.
  6. 6. Question two  The two parts of the question must not overlap. Each outcome or factor should be new information.  Eg don’t do – 1. rainfall leads to money, leads to schooling, leads to higher LR. 2 tradition leads to status in the family, leads to boys going to school, leads to higher LR. This is repitition of the first half of the answer.
  7. 7. Question Two  Natural factors.  Landforms or Rainfall.  Eg How does more rainfall mean lower IMR ?  More rain = more crops grown, this means more income and more food. The increased income means more money to spend on doctors visits. The more food means a healthier mother and so healthier baby.  You must include a named location where these things occur.
  8. 8. Question Three  This was about what people/groups are doing to try to decrease the differences.  There needed to be a difference stated eg IMR, LR, GDP etc ( with a stat )  There needed to be an actual action. Eg increased school attendance  There needed to be a group/person named eg World Vision, Water Aid, project carbon X, The Government.  There needed to be an outcome
  9. 9. Question three  Eg.  Group involved – World Vision.  Action taken – organised 40 hour famine, donated money to Tanzania.  Funded vaccinations of 40,000 rural children against Whooping Cough.  Outcome : IMR was reduced in the Rural areas of Kigoma between 1975 and 2000 from 115/1000 to 100/1000
  10. 10. Marking  0-6 = N  7 – 13 = A  14 – 18 = M  19+ = E (yeah right !)
