Controlling Acid Rain A Geographic Issue…

Describe means identify and outline. Identify: Who/what is affected? Where are the affects? When is it affected? Outline: How are they affected? (this means you need a because) The geographic nature of an issue relates to its effect on people and the environment. It may include location, the nature of arguments (eg political, economic, social, environmental), geographic ideas and perspectives. A contemporary issue is one that has implications for people now and/or in the future. Every sentence needs a because in it (or something similar) Task: Describe where (location) acid rain is a contemporary issue. Describe how acid rain can affect people (answers could include affect on social, political, cultural and economic environments). Describe how acid rain can affect the natural environment. Describe why controlling acid rain has implications for people now and in the future. Describe the geographic nature of a contemporary issue. Describe the geographic nature of a contemporary issue.

Controlling Acid Rain Viewpoints…

Viewpoints reflect relevant opinions/approaches/perspectives that relate to the issue. Describe means identify and outline. HOW Describe in detail means identify and outline with the use of supporting evidence, (and justification may be required), to demonstrate understanding.

Controlling Acid Rain Evaluating the courses of action…

Evaluate means making judgements about the strengths and weaknesses of the differing courses of action. Comprehensively evaluate means making judgements about the strengths and weaknesses of the differing courses of action, and using supporting evidence .

Task: If you wrote one strength and one weakness for each course of action, would you achieve or not achieve? If you wrote three strengths and three weaknesses for ONE course of action, would you achieve or not achieve? Do you need to state a reason for how each idea is a strength/weakness? Could you give lots or reasons and state no facts for all the ideas and still get an excellence? Would the information that you have written in your boxes be enough for achieve? Why/Why not? Choose one of the strengths and weaknesses and write it to the standard you are aiming for.

Task:

If you wrote one strength and one weakness for each course of action, would you achieve or not achieve?

If you wrote three strengths and three weaknesses for ONE course of action, would you achieve or not achieve?

Choose one of the strengths and weaknesses and write it to the standard you are aiming for.

Controlling Acid Rain Making a recommendation…

A recommendation is the selected course of action. You need to write 1-2 sentences as to why your selection is the best. A justified recommendation is one that is supported by arguments/evidence . This needs supporting evidence – facts, statistics, data etc. A fully justified recommendation is one that not only states why the recommendation selected is the best, but also indicates clearly why it is better than other possibilities/options/recommendations. This means you need to state what is wrong with the other courses of action and state why your chosen one is the better. 3 Criteria Comprehensively evaluate courses of action, and make a fully justified recommendation .

A recommendation is the selected course of action. You need to write 1-2 sentences as to why your selection is the best.

A justified recommendation is one that is supported by arguments/evidence . This needs supporting evidence – facts, statistics, data etc.

A fully justified recommendation is one that not only states why the recommendation selected is the best, but also indicates clearly why it is better than other possibilities/options/recommendations. This means you need to state what is wrong with the other courses of action and state why your chosen one is the better.

A recommendation is the selected course of action. To do this you need to work out which is the best course of action (solution). Remember the geographer’s advantage… your recommendation should be the course of action that best meets everyone’s needs. Sometimes, this is about deciding which perspective is the most important in this geographic issue and then deciding which course of action best meets the needs of that perspective. If you are aiming for achieved and you have finished this slide, put your hand up for your next task. If you are merit or excellence , continue to the next slide. Making a recommendation… TASK: Look back at your solution grid. Which perspective do you think is the most important for this Geographic Issue? Identify and circle which course of action is the best to meet the needs of this perspective. Write 1-3 sentences stating your recommendation and giving a reason for your recommendation.

TASK:

Look back at your solution grid.

Identify and circle which course of action is the best to meet the needs of this perspective.

Write 1-3 sentences stating your recommendation and giving a reason for your recommendation.

A justified recommendation is one that is supported by arguments/evidence. Stating why it is the best using facts to back you your argument. TASK: What do you think the above statement means? On your solutions grid, highlight the arguments/evidence that supports your recommendation. Identify and highlight in your information supporting evidence (examples, data) and brainstorm one geographic ideas that you could apply to your argument . Write a paragraph to justify your recommendation using the following sentence starters: __________ is the best course of action to control acid rain because……………… ……………………………………………………………………………… For example, ……………………………………………………………………………………………… .……………………………………………………………………………………………… This course of action will mean that… …………………………………………………………….……………………………… Justifying your recommendation… Name the solution Write a generalisation for why this is the best solution – Think about who it is benefiting and how Give a couple of examples for supporting evidence for why this course of action is the best (not why the others are worse) Use the strengths on the solution grid and evidence throughout your worksheet Summarise why this is the best – think about what it will do generally and why this is good – you must go back to why this is a geographic issue and discuss why this solution is solving the issue to meet the needs to certain perspectives. Apply ONE geographic idea to your argument.

A fully justified recommendation is one that not only states why the recommendation selected is the best, but also indicates clearly why it is better than other possibilities/options/recommendations. TASK: What is the difference between justify and fully justify. Edit your existing paragraph by…. Stating why chosen recommendation is better than the others by writing why the other actions are not so good. You need to do this by discussing the negative consequences of the other actins. You need to add comparative statements to your paragraph in the example and the explanation. For example you would need to say, “This is in comparison to…. If we chose this recommendation then…. (state all the negative consequences of this action) Remember to apply your geographic ideas and any diagrams where you can. Fully justifying your recommendation…
