Y10 Favela research work

These resources are all you need to complete a perfect piece of work on favelas

Firstly This is the instructions and the weblinks

Also this has the links to the BBC learning zone clips I showed you in the previous lesson.

Of course you shouldn’t forget our textbooks either.

Wider World pages 52-3 and pages 56-7. This is really good for the conditions and the way people have tried to improve shanty towns. But there is not really much on evaluating and comparing different schemes.

Then there is pages 86-7 in the BBC Bitesize revision book. Like most revision books there is a list of facts but not a lot of detail. They do explain the differences between 1) shanty town clearance, b) site and service plans and c) self help on page 87.

The final book is the AQA one “Understanding GCSE Geography” look at page 164-5 in here.

When you are writing this you should always remember the work we did on SOLO. Also look at the sheet that has the lists of connectives that help indicate what level or grade your research is heading towards. Especially take care to make links between the different conditions of the favelas and how people try to improve their living conditions.
