Enquiry into the impact of Chek Lap Kok International Airport.

Groups of students are allocated roles (see below) and have to prepare a presentation of no more than 2 - 3 minutes, based on their role, to explain what they think the good and bad things are and why they are therefore either for or against Chek Lap Kok Airport.

To write their speech students should read the resource sheets for each role. They may only use these sheets in the lesson, but they can get a copy from the homework folder (?) or website http://geographystcyear7.wikispaces.com/Development+in+Hong+Kong and research information using the Internet. They can include maps and photos to support their speech. EVERYONE even those working as a group should speak during the role-play. They may use whatever names they want for their characters, or even dress in role.
Their presentation can be a PP as long as they are able to make a speech along side the images. They can also prepare posters to stick up at the front of the room. It might be useful to set a time limit for each presentation.
Students will have to summarise the advantages and disadvantages in a brief written report next lesson during the role-play. This will be marked as the assessment for this unit.
Homework: Research material and write speech for the enquiry role-play for next lesson.
