    In groups of 3, you are going to prepare a news
broadcast looking into the summer flooding. You need
to produce an informative and emotive account of what
                       happened.

  Within your group, there needs to be a newsreader, a
technical expert and a person who has been affected by
                       the flooding.

  A powerpoint presentation will form the basis of the
   piece as with a news report on TV. This must be
  researched and put together by all members of the
        group and may include video footage.

                          Richard Langton Lawrence Sheriff School
               Managing congestion
Car ownership has increased at an enormous rate over the past 50 years and
with it the problems of congestion. All cities around the world suffer from the
problem to some extent and world leaders are scratching their heads about
what to do.


Your task is to produce a solution. You are to act as consultants to a chosen
city and must set out what the problem is and what the potential solutions are.
You should consider schemes around the world – not just in the UK.


The outcome will be a 10 minute power point presentation (10-15 slides)
outlining the issue and with at least 4 different examples of solutions. You must
support your ideas with evidence where possible.


                                               Richard Langton Lawrence Sheriff School
              Finding a place to live
The world’s population is growing and, for the first time, more people live in
cities than the countryside. For many countries, that means pressure on
resources and a lack of place to live.


Your task is to produce a solution to the housing problem. You are to act as
consultants to a chosen city in a developing country and must set out what the
problem is and what the potential solutions are. You should consider schemes
around the world – not just in the UK.


The outcome will be a 10 minute power point presentation (10-15 slides)
outlining the issue and with at least 4 different examples of solutions. You must
support your ideas with evidence where possible.
