Representation and ResearchPosted on: 2nd Feb 2021
A Level Geography students developed their public speaking and research skills, in a virtual task which enabled them to explore how their local area of Lambeth and the borough of Newham are portrayed in Art, literature, music and social media to examine how they are represented and perceived by others. Students presented their findings to their peers over teams and displayed great teamwork and innovation in their approaches that they undertook to find different representations.
“I was very impressed by the confidence with which the students who presented their findings spoke. It was great to hear them speak with such clarity and confidence, and they responded to questions really well. They researched the tasks very thoroughly and all approached the tasks very differently. Students found a vast array of songs, paintings, street art and social media! These skills will be very important when they start doing their own research projects and some students have already started comparing the representations of places with statistics about the area. All of us discovered a lot about our local area and it was great for the students to see each other’s work”.
