Part 1 of the Kamakura project is to be completed by end of the lesson, Tuesday April 25th.
We will then move on to look at large sports events and focus o the Olympics Tokyo 2020.
We will complete part 2 of the Kamakura project after the exams.
By next lesson ( Tuesday 11th ), please make sure you have completed your map of Japan and map of Kamakura’s location, plus background information. This is to introduce your project. Also you should complete the prefecture map of Japan and the world we worked on today.
Please remember to bring back the signed permission letter for the trip next week.
Today I need you to look at the Kamakura project. Below is a section from the project, which you can make a start on whilst I am away. Please do your research, follow prompts below and write an introduction on Tourism in Kamakura plus create 2 maps.
- In this section you should include some information on tourism and History in Kamakura.
- You must not copy. This section should be no more than 150 words and they must be entirely your own words and your “voice”. Read a web page and then close it down while you write it up in a word document.
- You also need to describe the location of Kamakura. You should include a written description which includes the distance from Tokyo and compass directions.
- You should include 2 maps – a Japan map ( mark on main cities) and mark on Kamakura’s location and draw a local area map of Kamakura, If these are copied from the Internet they must be both referenced. They should be simple maps that only show us the information that we want. Maps should be annotated using the “draw” tools.
- Your maps must be titled, have a scale, north arrow and key. Keep them simple and look at the survey area map you can simplify this if you wish.
Please read over the A3 sheet given to you and answer the questions on both sides.

- Issues in their area or country ( government stability, economy, debt, war etc ) which might affect their level of development.
- Main economic activities and growth rate

You need to suggest the strategies we have discussed in class: AID, FDI, Fair Trade, Debt Relief, Market and Trade Access, Government policy, Remittances, as well as micro-financing through Kiva. If you find any other solution make sure to ask your teacher first.
All of your decisions must be supported with statistical and anecdotal evidence.
