SAC 2 – UNIT 3 AREA OF STUDY 2. PREPARATION AND REVISION
3.2.1 – TYPES OF CONTEMPORARY RELATIONSHIPS Understanding of the four types – Definition of each category Examples from specific outdoor environments including: Views of the outdoor environment Interactions with the outdoor environment Impacts on the outdoor environment Understanding of how these change over time. You should have your popplet that will assist in your revision
3.2.2 - THE FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE C.S.R WITH OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENTS – the effects of different technologies – commercialisation of outdoor environments and outdoor experiences – portrayals of outdoor environments and outdoor experiences in the media, music, art, writing and advertising – social responses to risk taking – social and political discourses about climate change, water management, biosecurity and other
EFFECT OF DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGIES Understanding of different activities Identification of at least 3 changes in equipment used in these activities and the ability to describe these in detail Ability to analyse the role that these changes have on C.S.R over time. (you may be required to look at the different types of CSR )
BETTER RESPONSES RELATING TO THE CHANGE IN CSR WILL….. Relate the changes specifically to a cause Explain what the change cause – easy, safer, quicker etc. Relate the causes (easy, safer, quicker) to CSR – Views, interactions, impacts
EXAMPLE This heated wetsuit developed by Ripcurl has changed contemporary relationships with the natural environment. Its development has enabled people to go surfing in environments that we were previously unable to due the cool temperatures of the water. It makes this experience much safer as it is able to keep the core body temperature at a consistent level It also enables participants to participate in the activity during the cooler months of the year without being uncomfortable due to the cooler water temperatures that occur in this time.
COMMERCIALISATION OF OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENTS AND OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES Understanding of what commercialisation is……………. A definition that accurately describes it Examples of commercialisation of outdoor environments and experiences from venues that you have studied or visited
A GOOD RESPONSE WILL Explain the type of commercialisation that is present – tour and package Give a detailed specific example of what it involves Explain the effect/cause of the example used – makes it easier to orgainsed or more expensive Relates these effects/causes to the change in CSR (Evaluate/Analyse) Because the tour or package made it easier to organise I had a much more positive experience, this has effect my relationship with outdoor environments as I am more likely to visit this area again and also learnt a great deal about the environment whilst snorkeling that I am going to continue to participate in this activity. However it was very expensive which means that I would not be able to do the tour/package again, rather I will try and organise it myself. Again you might have to look at the different types of CSR
PORTRAYALS OF OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENTS OR EXPERIENCES Have an example for the five types: Media Song Writing Art Advertising You then need to be able to discuss in detail the effect that these have on contemporary societal relationships
BETTER RESPONSES WILL…….. Use specific examples from their portrayals in their responses Describe the effect or cause on the relationship (fear of places etc.) and then relate this to the change that may be caused on the different types of C.S.R Tourism Campaigns are an example of how advertising can portray both outdoor environments and outdoor experiences, an example of this the Tourism Campaign from the 80’s that used Paul Hogan to attract people to Australia. This campaigned displayed the laid back nature of Australian’s and the beauty of the environment. It may shape relationships by changing the types of places that people visit, they may visit the areas that were shown on the map. This may also change the relationship of people that used to go to these areas, as they may become overcrowded with tourist and they lose the opportunity to enjoy the environment in peace. The activities that were shown on the add may also encourage people to try these, the however may only do these and not do other activities that are available because they do not know about them.
SOCIAL RESPONSES TO RISK TAKING Understanding of what is involved in each stage of the chain of events Ability to identify and explain social responses that have occurred at outdoor environments that you have visited – At BMNP there are signs at each of the beaches that highlight the dangers with currents and provide emergency details if an accident occurs, it also provides details of the nearest patrolled beach. Ability to identify and explain social responses that have occurred in regards to outdoor activities – schools are a good examples to use - Banning of certain activities, such as parachuting and bungee jumping due to the development of the DEECD outdoor activities guidelines.
SOCIAL RESPONSES TO RISK TAKING Ability to use the examples to analyse and evaluate the effect of these social responses on CSR BETTER RESPONSES WILL………. Clearly identify social responses that have or will happen at different outdoor environments or in outdoor activities Direct relate these social responses to the different types of CSR – providing both effects/causes to the CSR and a description of how these would change CSR – Interactions, impacts and Views/Attitudes/Beliefs
A schoolgirl is killed by a falling rock during an Outdoor Education trip with her school. She is standing at the base of the climb at the time and is not actually involved in climbing. The incident happens quite a few years ago when wearing helmets is not compulsory. The media report the incident widely and show climbing as a very high risk activity. There is a coroner’s inquest into the death and the coroner’s report suggests that the girl would have survived if she had been wearing a helmet and had been briefed to stand away from the base of the climb while there were climbers above her. The public response to this report is to put pressure on the government to improve safety regulations in rock climbing activities. There is some suggestion that the school should be sued for not providing a safe environment for the students. A final result is that the government, through the Department of Education, implements new regulations that school groups must follow in order to decrease the actual risks involved in climbing activities. These include compulsory wearing of helmets and compulsory accreditation of instructors. The climbing industry responds by developing a training scheme where teachers and climbing instructors can gain their accreditation.
POLITICAL AND SOCIAL DISCOURSE Need to have an understanding of all three topics – Water Management, Biosecurity and Climate change. Be able to identify different issues associated with these topics and aware of others that may be occurring (they might write these on the exam) Be able to describe different points of view/arguments for each side of the issue Be able to discuss the social and political discourse about the issue/arguments etc. Be able to identify and discuss different actions that have happened in response to this issue – If political often is written so could be classed as discourse (this is the confusing bit, as often actions done by individuals are thought to be discourse (these are not conversations – But if people talk about what they are required to do it could be considered discourse)
POLITICAL AND SOCIAL DISCOURSE Be able to evaluate the effect of the discourse on the different types of CSR Changes to views/attitudes/beliefs, interactions (types, how done, when, where we go etc.) and the impacts. BETTER RESPONSES WILL…….. (In regards to the evaluation of CSR) Use direct examples from the arguments and discourse to support their evaluation.
EXAMPLE Foreign owned farms Many Australian’s believe that there should be a cap on the % of agricultural land that can be foreign owned. This discourse may encourage Australian’s not only to by produce directly from Australian Farms, it could also see them use their own land to produce food for their homes, such as having a veggie garden. It may also encourage people to become involved in the agricultural industry through employment or working with farmers to encourage them to stay on the land. In Maffra the government grants for young Australians to buy agricultural land may also encourage them to use the environment as a resource. This could effect the ability of these people to continue with the types of interactions that they previously had (recreation etc.) or assist in the development of conservational practices when farming on the land, as these people may have a different view of the outdoor environment than traditional farmers in the area.
Relaxing regulations that allow greater trade between China and Australia – More imports from China Carbon Tax being applied to all industry HOW WOULD THIS DISCOURSE ABOUT THE FOLLOWING EFFECT CSR
