The paradise lost assessment requires students to produce a booklet for Thailand's tourists. Whilst the focus is primarily on understanding environmental interaction different levels of work require different content ranging, for example, from identification of tourist destinations and development of a code of respect for Level five to an analysis of Thailand's tourist destinations and Thai people's different attitudes towards tourists for level eight.

The assessment is designed for students to complete individually. It is an ideal assessment just prior to reporting attainment targets as it covers so many of geography's key concepts and key processes of a place largely unfamiliar to students.

Resources available for this assessment are:

  • Resource Sheet B - Using Sources PDF | MSWORD
  • Plan for Paradise Lost Booklet PDF | MSWORD
