River and coastal fieldwork approaches that are directly relevant to ‘real-world’ professional industries, career paths, and activities
Conducted in partnership with Environmental Resources Management (ERM), the Professional Support for Fieldwork project directly addresses issues surrounding geography fieldwork provision in schools.
In particular, the project aims to:
(1) Provide resources and guidelines that highlight how the skills and knowledge developed through school fieldwork are directly relevant to ‘real-world’ professional industries, career paths, and activities.
(2) Provide fieldwork ideas and guidelines with an emphasis on site types/activities that can be found/performed within proximity to most schools and at a low cost.
This collection of resources, created in collaboration with Tornillo Scientific, includes:
Lesson 1: Guidelines for two possible river fieldwork projects. These activities are demonstrated using an example study area (Tame River Valley, Greater Manchester). For each approach, a power point presentation is provided for use in the classroom.
Lesson 2: Guidelines for three possible coastal fieldwork projects. These activities are demonstrated using an example study area (Point of Ayr & Prestatyn, North Wales). For each approach, a power point presentation is provided for use in the classroom.
For each fieldwork plan, we provide generic requirements for fieldwork site selection, the tools and techniques for data collection, pre- and post-fieldwork activities, relevance to GCSE and A Level curricula, critical Health & Safety considerations, and an example case study.
