Tower Hamlets Fieldwork


25 A Level teachers attended the ‘Changing Places ‘ Fieldwork workshop at the School of Geography on Wednesday 16th March 2016.
The focus of the session was to explore how to create robust urban fieldwork based on the Changing Places element of the new A Level specifications.

For summary of the key ideas and influences on this element of the specification see this summary.

Planning: Setting up an over –arching  enquiry question
Setting a robust enquiry question ensures that students are engaged in thinking through what data they need to collect and how they will carry out their analysis right from the start.  The enquiry question that we used lent itself to being broken down into a myriad of smaller enquiries which would suit the new individual investigation as pieces of fieldwork and the results of all would come together to share understanding of changing places from an academic perspective.
