                                 UNIT GCSE H1 – POPULATION CHANGE

Pupils that have followed the More House KS3 Geography Programme of Study will have studied population in Year 8,
providing them with a basis in this topic and building upon the foundation built at KS3, thus providing familiarity whilst
fostering progression. This topic is one of the options in the 40302 Human Geography paper, and has been chosen due
to the important issues relating to global population, immigration and resources that are currently affecting the world and
are becoming and will continue to become pressing as the pupils grow up, especially the problems related to the ageing
population of Britain and debates about immigration laws. The topic encourages pupils to adopt a balanced stance
regarding immigration – it could be seen as a way of reducing the problems related to the ageing population in Britain,
whilst it could also put strain on other resources. More contemporary issues and case studies have been used to illustrate
these points such as a set of activities and role plays related to Polish migration to the UK and an in depth case study of
migration of Bosnian refugees to Germany in the early-mid 1990s.

Kinaesthetic learners will enjoy the set of activities related to Polish migration to the UK. This includes a mystery guest
activity (on Powerpoint) which also includes images and some Polish music to engage visual and auditory learners, card
sorting and matching activities (‘Who said that?’), a ‘taking sides conscience corridor’ activity where pupils in the role
of the wife of a Polish migrant have to walk through a corridor of pupils and are persuaded to go to England or stay in
Poland by other pupils in role. Similarly, role plays about solutions to the ageing population and migration are designed
to engage kinaesthetic learners particularly and are a good way of allowing pupils to express values and attitudes relating
to these issues. Videos on transmigration in Indonesia and demographic change in Italy are also targeted to visual
learners. Pupils are provided with an Understanding GCSE Geography for AQA Specification A pupil textbook written
for the new specification. This provides additional activities for revision purposes and is particularly effective for visual

It is possible that some pupils in the class will be taking the Foundation tier in the examination (it is possible under the
new specification to re-sit a paper at a different tier or take the physical and human examinations in different tiers
depending on the requirements of the individual pupil). As a result, questions will be identified as relating primarily to
higher or foundation tier; as a result, pupils will answer the questions that are related to the level of examination they
will be taking, although a pupil sitting the foundation tier will also have the option of including higher tier questions if
they so desire (for example, designing and justifying a population policy is more characteristic of higher tier questions).
Areas of the unit also consider A-level issues such as Malthusianism to stretch and challenge the more able pupils.
