Click on the following link to find out the answer to the above question:
Why did Asia develop rapidly and Africa didn’t? (Presentation)
Today we will take a look at the different stages of development and some factors that account for uneven development. We will look at 2 competing theories about development and what they suggest about how countries develop and barriers to development.
We will also look at the different economic activities (types of industry sectors, jobs, services, etc.) that are common at different stages of development and the implications of this on development and vice versa.
Helpful Links for Today's Class:
After a brief lecture in class, there will be a short formative vocab quiz on Fouberg Chapter 10 terms and concepts.
The remaining time in class will be devoted to working on Interim Presentation Projects.
HW: Work on interim presentations...
Based on your MCQ results... I think classes should spend some time reviewing the location of the 50 U.S. states: http://world-geography-games.com/us-states.html
Today we will start delving into the factors that impact a country's "development" and issues that often arise when countries are at different stages of development. We will begin to look at different models and theories about development to try to understand the complexity and challenges with getting more people around the world to higher stages of development and better living conditions.
APHG Unit 6 Part 1: Development (Lecture Slides)
Interim Project Presentations... begin to prepare...
You will be given some time this week (in class as well as assigned for homework) to work on your Interim Presentations. Let's review the requirements and begin signing up for your date to present:
Interim Presentation reminders and samples
HW: Read Fouberg CH. 10 (Development)
Read through Chapter 9 of Fouberg on Development (if you have a newer version of the book, the Development chapter might be Chapter 10). Be familiar with the terms used.
You will have a formative vocab quiz towards the end of next class after we review some of the terms and after a short lecture.
Today we will review for the summative (happening next class -- Wed. 2/13 for A Blocks; Thurs. 2/14 B Block).
The following resources will be helpful for review:
Overview of Interim presentations
During Interim, you are asked to take photos for a real-world field application of geographic concepts and terms. While you are on Interim, consider how what you have studied in Human Geography so far this year applies to the country and areas you are visiting. Take photos (and/or video).
When you return from Interim, you will spend some time in class that week working on an Interim Field Studies of Geography and create a presentation (slides or video--your choice).
You will need to sign up for a day to present. Details of the Interim project presentation can be found on the document (tasks, rubric and sample presentations):
HW: Study!!! Also, be sure your binder is ready!
Study the hints and any helpful resources if the "hint" words on the slides isn't ringing any bells for you--the lecture slides and quizlet flashcards should help you if the title of the slide and image isn't enough of a hint of what might be on the test.
Be sure you have the following items in your binder (note: the Woodlands Observation notes from the Woodlands Walkabout will help you but wont' hurt you so if you didn't attend, you can still manage to get an "A+" without it--I have your observation notes if you turned them in that day--I'll give them back to you). Print out your Pros/Cons notes and your reading/study guide for Rubenstein (if you did this one electronically).
Do the 1-pager. Yes. And a 1-pager is not just a list of terms. Its a concept map so you need to show connections to different terms and concepts. Don't make a list of every term on Quizlet and think that counts as a 1-pager. No points for you if you show me just a list of words.
Today you will complete a formative MCQ.
Afterwards, we will go over your formative FRQ results.
HW: Finish study guide & work on 1-pager
IF you still need to complete the Unit 5 study guide, please do so.
Also, begin working on your Unit 5 1-pager with important concepts, terminology, etc.
Next class will be the review session for the Summative MCQ and Summative FRQ.
Summative HINTS PPT
Summative MCQ + FRQ will be on Wed. Feb. 13 (A Blocks), Thurs. Feb. 14 (B Blocks)
