Coloured pencils make Geography clearer

It's often been said that Geographers are obsessed with coloured pencils.

Well, we're proud to say that's true - for mapping and diagrammatical clarity they're certainly invaluable. However Year 8 this week found another use for them - for reading!

In their lessons this week, Year 8 tried reading news reports normally aimed at Year 9/iGCSE students about the problems and solutions of Wind Farms. By colour-coding certain bodies of texts, each student was able to sift through a large piece of text and they were more able to easily identify themes and topics within a detailed report of the benefits and negative impacts of Wind energy producing technologies in their Global Warming issues lessons.

Introducing students to higher level work can be intimidating - but our bold students are ambitious and took the task in hand with an enthusiastic diligence and attention to detail. Suddenly, a seemingly endless double page of words became more easily broken down - and more comprehensible, even for our EAL students. This technique is used by senior students to section their ideas and find themes - so Year 8 also saw the future of their education as well as understanding some of the rural and urban conflicts that exist with the growth of Wind Farms in our societies.
