After today's formative FRQ on development AND the formative Vocabulary Quiz...
We will continue to look at Industry and Services, shifting to emphasis on services.
We will look at some franchises to understand some of the decision-making behind WHY they choose to locate a business in a specific geographic location.
We will look at Hotelling's Model of Spatial Competition... and we will look at Central Place Theory to help understand WHY consumer businesses choose to locate where they do and why they have to be careful with where they choose to open a business based on range (how far away their customers will travel) and threshold (how many customers they need to be profitable).
We will examine these theories and models by looking at Buffalo Wild Wings franchise and think about where we should hypothetically locate one in Singapore. There is a document in your APHG Drop folder for this.

HW: Study for Formative MCQ - Next Class!
You will take a formative MCQ next class. Here are the hints to help you study!
Formative MCQ Hints
Today we will spend some time with a practice FRQ so that you can continue to hone your skills in writing an FRQ --and-- practice scoring sample FRQ responses to help you understand what is necessary to earn all points on an FRQ and recognize responses that don't quite meet the expectation for full points.
Today's FRQ topic is on Call Centers. It will focus specifically on U.S. Call Centers. You will be provided some background information on this to help you be able to craft a response (again, today's is practice--not a formative). Hopefully you also did the homework on Outsourcing so you also have that for some background context on call centers and many of the "back office" work that had shifted overseas to "offshore" locations. If you did the homework, you would have also read about why there is a shift away from some outsourcing to India and what this may mean for India.
Helpful Links for Today's Class:
We will take a look at some of the key vocabulary and concepts & connect this back to why we see the types of industries and services in the locations we find them around the world.
We will look closely at the steel industry and auto industry as a case study for this.

After today's class focus on Gender Inequality and the role of women and girls in addressing development challenges (and human rights challenges), you are asked to watch one of the featured chapters of the Sundance Film Festival documentary "Girl Rising". Please watch the video on either Suma's Story (Nepal) or Senna's Story (Peru). There are additional videos you can watch that are included.
Link to Girl Rising video clips
Note: If you are interested and would rather watch the entire film, it is approx. 1 hour 40 min. long. It is heart-breaking, beautifully told stories of 9 girls, and stunning cinematography--this story is truly inspiring with a fantastic sountrack!
You can find the full-length film available for rent on Amazon. It is worth watching the entire film!
Additionally, we will move onto Part 2 of this unit & shift to Industry and Services. In preparation for that, please read/familiarize yourself with the "Services" chapter in Rubenstein, Chapter 12.
