Yet another CA question I'm afraid!
The exam board gives us a theme for the CA - 'Investigate land use in an urban area' - and from that we've made a title for the students based on how and why land use and characteristics change in the 3 urban areas...
Fieldwork was last week, data has been collected, now we start our mammoth 22 lesson CA write-up!
First section of Mark Scheme is based mainly around identifying 4-5 key concepts which will underpin the study, and which apparently the students are supposed to do themselves... the exam board, however, doesn't appear to give any guidance as to what they THINK the students should come up with (or have I missed something here?!)
We (the teachers) can come up with something (land use changes, characteristics change, environmental quality changes, etc), but how are 14-15 yr-olds supposed to do this by themselves? Also, what WE may think are appropriate concepts in our school may not be the same as some other teachers in another school might think are appropriate! It's all a bit too woolly for my liking...
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
