Real Geography in a Real World ICT Dance English History Maths Science Paul White and Jordan Noble-Smith, with Mel Norman GA Annual Conference 2009
Aims of the workshop To suggest possible teaching strategies within specific themes To share ideas for cross – curricular links
Real Geography so far On your post-it note list any links you have made with any other subjects. For example: A small link between citizenship and development to A significant whole school input towards global awareness day to A collapsed Humanities timetable for year 7
Why across curriculums? Embedded within the new Key Stage 3 curriculum: help make learning real and relevant (QCA 2008, Cross Curriculum Dimensions, a planning guide for schools) 7 dimensions: identity & cultural diversity; healthy lifestyles; community participation; enterprise; global dimension & sustainable development; technology and the media; creativity and critical thinking. Engaging students from lesson to lesson, linking to their lived reality Raising the profile of geography across the school
An example The Big Geographical Picture The Geography of Pizza (all credit to Louis in Year 9) As NQTs we are keen to bring our own ideas and experiences into the whole-school environment whilst remaining Geographers at heart! Here are some of our suggestions...

A link with... ICT/Business Studies The geography... Globalisation and national stereotypes Retail and marketing Also links to the technology and media & creativity and critical thinking dimensions Possible enquiry questions: How are pizzas sold to us? How are stereotypes used in marketing pizzas? What are the historical factors used to sell pizzas? How would you advertise pizza?
Another link with... Science/PE The geography... Sustainable living Also links clearly to the healthy lifestyles dimension Possible enquiry questions: Are pizzas healthy? What on a pizza is healthy/unhealthy? How much exercise is required to burn off a standard pizza?
Your Big Geographical Picture: In small groups come up with an overall theme, subjects to link with and possible enquiry questions Extension/alternative activity: come up with your own ideas not based on these pictures Images removed for copyright reasons: MySpace You Tube X Factor iPod Compact disc Cassette tape The Beatles Savage Garden Eurovision Song Contest U2 Savage Garden Abba
What did you come up with? Any other big pictures?
