Title: ASDAN other cultures - any ideas/help gratefully received :-)
Post by: HB100 on December 31, 2012, 03:34:06 PM
Well it has not stopped raining here so am having a look at my first week planning for my new school.

I am teaching a Year 11 ASDAN group for 5 hours a fortnight looking at 'other cultures'.  They have done Brazil and South America and have been told they like controversial issues.

So, was thinking North America

Place/ people/ culture / food / famous people / famous places then either oil or seal culls or polar bear issues.

Any help would be gratefully received as I have no scheme of work or specification to work from ....

Hi Helen

Re-integration of wolves in Yellowstone or the conflict between bears and urban areas e.g. Meatball the bear. Gun control?

Good luck in your new job!

OK so this is my 'plan' !

Intro to North America - basic Geog
Native Americans
Racism - civil rights MLK
Wealth/Poverty
Migration from Mexico to USA - rise of Hispanic population
Rap music - analysis of eminem and write their own rap/record it for qualification
Gun crime
Tourism - hawaii dirty beaches
Future for USA

So, any links to any good resources would be great - thank you SLN !
