You now have the syllabus and we will go through some important things about the course, what we will be covering, the assessment criteria and expectations. For homework please print out the core units of the syllabus, the options – coasts, hazards, and food and health. Put this in a folder with the green assessment sheet I gave you. You should also read over and familiarise yourselves with the command terms which are the last 2 pages of the syllabus doc ( pages 73 and 74 ) but looks like page 81 and 82 as you scroll down. We’ll have a quick test on these next lesson – Tues.

Mr McKeown has kindly offered to cover where he can and will be able to cover 2 of the lessons for 10-D. Please see this doc  10-D as it has on the classes and instructions of what to watch and when.

Both classes – Please read the request at the bottom of the page and add links to any documentaries you feel would be interesting.

Mr McKeown will be covering all of the lessons for 10-B so he will conduct the classes.

Tourism promotion – to do in my absence – presented to Ms Y.

Today, and in my absence, you will be working on producing a promotional video – approx 3 minutes long – no more!

You are to choose a place you have visited on holiday, which you really like – it can be any type of holiday destination – ski resort, beach resort, city, cultural site etc.

Imagine you are working for the tourist office and are in charge of promoting this place. Your aim is to encourage more tourists to visit using this promotional video.

You should use maps, video clips (no more than 4 and no longer than 5 seconds each clip), photos ( you can use your own if you want) and whatever you think will enhance it…Maybe music? But please, if you use music, make sure it does not drown out your narration.

Use what you need from the web as long as you cite them in the works cited at the end.

You must narrate the video.

So start off by researching, organising what you will say and show. Work on this during lessons on Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th and  should complete it for homework the weekend of 11th and 12th.

Be ready to present your video to the class on Mon 13th. I look forward to watching them too!

Please add your name with the links to your videos on this doc.
