Hi guys,

I will be absent today. I will be in Kamakura with the grade 10s to conduct some filed research on coastal areas.

Here is the work for today:

Periods 1, 2: Grade 12

  • Period 1:
  • Period 2: Gen will put his computer on the screen and you will watch parts 2 and 3 of the Loess Plateau Case study.
    • Remember to take notes as described on the post: Cause, consequences, management strategies
  • Once the movie is over, complete the written task exercise at the bottom of the post and  email me your answers before the end of class.
  • If you finish early, read Codrington.

Periods 3, 4: Grade 9A

  • 11:05 to 11:30: In your table groups, discuss the H&M CSR presentation you went to yesterday.
    • Guiding questions:
      • Was Ms Ortiz transparent in her comments?
      • What did you learn from the presentation?
      • Were there things you disagreed with?
      • How is H&M fairing in terms of sustainability? Is it enough?
      • Can there be a conflict between environmentalism and human rights? Is H&M capable of doing both?
      • Can you think of way H&M could improve their CSR?
      • What other ideas do you have about Ms Ortiz’s last question? (What can we do?)
