Lesson 1 –MONOPOLIES
What are monopolies? Are monopolies good or bad? Sometimes they offer more benefits than disadvantages, other times more cons.
Think of some examples of monopolies in our community?
Watch the video below and read all the articles/slideshows
Video economics – monopolies explained simply
The importance of competition – monopolies
In groups of 2 or 3 find 2 real world examples of companies with a monopoly on their market:
- One with positive social outcomes
- One with negative social outcomes
Today we discussed some of the issues/consequences that arise from rapid growth of cities and overpopulation in LEDCs. All cities have similar consequences. I handed you photocopies from 2 books to help and you also made some notes.
I also went through how to write an essay so make sure you plan it well and are as concise as possible.
Remember to use the mark criteria too and have your parents read it before handing in.
For homework & in lieu of Fri class you will answer the question – ‘With reference to a specific case study ( in this case it is Mumbai) discuss the consequences of migration into a megacity’’ ( 10 marks)
It must be no more than 3 handwritten sides or 2 typed sides using 12 font.
It is due Fri 21st.
Don’t forget that you also need to make a copy and define all the Key terms in this doc.
see this doc
We will look at population change through time due to natural processes and migration and the consequences on people and places.
This is the summative – 9-A will complete this and present on Sept 18th and 9-D will complete and present on Sept 20th
This is an example of one I like

Here are the ATLs – Skills we will be focusing on developing. Please create a portfolio where you can track your skill development over the course of the year and add reflections
The add your name and hyperlink to your portfolio on the pages below
Please read this for homework
Today we will share our evaluation of some Market Failures. We will listen and offer peer feedback. Please read over the TSC and go to the 10 A peer comment doc
10 D Peer feedback doc
Look at these articles.
You can read several and we will discuss issues in class. You will choose one to focus on in particular for your first assessment.
Moral dilemmas….when would we do something?? Brainstorm factors on why people help someone that they perceive to be in need. Bystanderism: why do some people not help someone in need? Introduction to the bystander effector bystander intervention, ask yourself what you would do in each of the seven situations and why.
Bystanderism intervention reading looking at the factors that influence whether or not someone helps when a person is in need. Be able to explain and identify at least 3 of the following factors and explain how each affects bystanderism:diffusion of responsibility, social influence, audience inhibition, arousal, cost-reward, similarity, mood, competence and experience. Which factor(s) do you think plays the greatest role?
Watch the video on the death of Kitty Genovese which led to research by Latane and Darley, and write a quick synopsis of what happened.
Link to questionnaire
Lesson Bystander effect cont
Time for everyone to catch up on the Bystander reading. Share your synopses of the Kitty Genovese murder after watching the following video on the incident.
Read the handout on Observation and start to think of the observational study you would like to conduct for Monday’s class.
Watch and observe the action in the clip in class on one situation, and record what you think is most important to remember about what you have observed. Compare your notes with your classmates at your table, similar or different? Are there any ethical considerations in the data that you have collected? How could you make sense of the data? Bring your findings to class tomorrow and be sure that you read and annotate the handout on Observations.
Behaviourism – conditioning and manipulation
Today you will continue our look at human behaviour, in particular ‘Conditioning’
Behaviourism is affecting behaviour through conditioning
Work with a partner for today so get into pairs or a 3 if odd numbers.
Jot down your answers and suggestions on a google doc and hyperlink it to this doc using your names – we will go through these next lesson
Read this article Classic conditioning
Now watch the video on Pavlov’s work
- Can you think of any examples of conditioned response you might have developed.
Watch this more Recent version of this experiment. Work with a partner and do the following:-
2. Now see if you can come up with a simple experiment similar to the above.
Now watch a similar experiment on a human by Watson and Rayner – Little Albert
3. What’s your reaction to an experiment like this on the baby.
4. Can it be justified to use experiments like this in the pursuit of scientific knowledge or human behaviour.
5. What might the consequences be for this little boy’s behaviour because of his conditioning?
6. Think of some examples of positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement that you know have been effective with you.
Operant behaviour and morality. Watch these 2 monkeys – testing fairness experiment….they aren’t daft are they? We will look more at this next lesson.
