I’ve put together some resources exploring the proposed developments at Portsmouth. The idea is a decision making exercise where groups of pupils will prepare a presentation for Portsmouth City Council. I will add more resources as my class works through the unit together with any evaluation and tips.
This first link introduces the activity and allows the class to explore the idea. You’ll need the Meon Valley OS map 1:25,000 (we use the free ones supplied by the OS) and a selection of news articles from http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/ . I find that the letters section of this paper is a great source of additional viewpoints! If you have trouble in selecting appropriate articles get in touch and I’ll email you the links.
The resources can be found here
