How can we plan for the fieldwork trip?

How can we plan for the fieldwork trip? L/O To create an action plan and route for the fieldwork and consider how we can use persuasive writing, photography and other sources in our projects How is this fieldwork unit assessed? For your first piece of assessed work in Humanities, you will be creating a travel guide for a day tripper to Peng Chau island. You will

need to produce: 1. A Written Travel Guide that describes the key historical and geographical (physical/human) attractions of Peng Chau island and it also needs to explain the changes that have taken place there within the last 100 years. 2. A Large Annotated Map to show the tourist attractions of the island to help and inform visitors.

Task 1 - Planning the Fieldwork Assessment 1. Have a look at the Assessment Instructions Mr. Budd has given you What do you need to do to get a high mark? 2. Now look at your Action Plans. In your groups, think about the types of data you need to collect. 3. What information do you need to collect? 4. How will the information be presented in the final project?

Task 2 - Planning your Route around the Island 1. In groups, plan your route around the island on a large map. Think about how much time you have and what your need to see and record. 2. Try to include the well known physical and human attractions and look out for any historical features and buildings. This website will help you:

3. Try using to help plan your route. Task 3 - What language can we use to Persuade? When writing a travel guide for a tourist, it is important to use language and words that persuade the person to go places! On the next slide you will see an extract from a travel guide. Think about The intended audience

Its purpose Where you might find it How it tries to persuade you Example of an intro about a place Crete - One of the Greek Islands most famous villa holiday destinations, Crete essentially caters for every taste. Yet while its better-known resorts are equipped for tourism and busy nightlife, vast areas remain beautifully untouched. Among the many reasons to

holiday in Crete are its lively cities, shopping havens, historical sites, endless beaches and natural curiosities. Our villas are set near quiet coves, secluded beaches and invigorating mountain villages steeped in traditional Greek life, culture, charm and pure romance. Example - Why are these places important? James Recommends - Visit King Minas Palace at Knossos to see where Theseus made his way

through the labyrinth to slay the legendary half-man, half-bull monster The Minotaur. - Go hiking and take in the breathtaking scenery at Samaria Gorge - the longest in Europe. Its a long, hard days walk not for the faint hearted - but well worth the effort. A further 50 gorges are waiting to be discovered, some much easier to traverse than others so seek advice before you go Join in the celebrations at the Rethymno Wine Festival in late July and witness spectacular Greek dancing and free flowing wine. - Visit Chania Town on the west coast, known as the prettiest town on the island for its combination of natural beauty and variety of archaeological and historical sights.

Example What are the writers trying to do? The Great Outdoors There are countless things to do and see in Crete. Walks, climbs, drives and rides take you across striking plateaux, dramatic mountains and stunning seascapes. When you choose a villa holiday on this Greek Island, you can discover local customs and traditions; try new sports or simply soak up the stunning natural environment and its amazing views from snow-capped mountains to glistening bays. Swimming, water sports, fishing, diving and snorkelling are in abundance

around Cretes coastline. Climbing and caving are also a popular way to explore the islands world-famous local gorges. Example Why have they included this? Hit the Beach Youll find an endless number of beautiful sand and coloured pebble beaches bordering Cretes coastline - many awarded with the Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, and ideal for a family holiday. Pretty secluded coves lapped by clear warm seas are dotted across Crete; while the larger and busier villa

holiday resorts and bays offer waterfront bars, tavernas and every day amenities ideal for families. The island also provides practical seaside facilities, including sun umbrellas as well as lifeguards in peak season to watch over visitors on the beach and in the water. Example What are they trying to do here? Step back in time Crete is home to many architectural and historical jewels. From ancient labyrinthine ruins and scenic routes welltrodden by legends, youll be instantly transported back to the

Minoan culture that flourished on this Greek Island thousands of years ago. Roman, Venetian and Turkish rule have also left their mark on Crete with cobbled alleys, monasteries, old fortresses, mosques and harbours. Multiple museums offer a fascinating insight into its long and colourful past, as well as Cretes many cultural traditions still practised in villages to this day. Example Who is the audience here? Shop in Local Style

Shopping on Crete is an experience not to be missed. A wide range of small village shops and markets sell local produce and beautifully-crafted leather, copper, bronze, terracotta and wooden items. Explore the bigger towns on your villa holiday, where the streets are lined with chic boutiques offering the latest trends in clothing, shoes, and beauty items. Everything from top designer labels to original jewellery pieces, folk art and olive oil (Cretes is rated one of the best in the world) youll find great gifts, holiday essentials and luxury items at competitive prices.

Example Why is there a Map? Could the map be more detailed? How could it be improved? The 2 most important things to remember when writing to persuade are Audience

Purpose Who will be reading your writing? Your reason for writing it. Remember you are trying to persuade your audience, so when you are considering the sort of language to use, think about

including: 1. Emotive Words 2. Directive Language 3. Rhetorical Questions Emotive Words These arouse strong feelings in the reader and encourage them to read on. For Example: The new Ariston FM51R built-in oven is styled in Italy, with a breathtaking stainless steel and mirror glass

finish. Directive Language This gives instructions or orders. In this way, the readers feel as if you are speaking directly to them. For Example: Come and experience Crete for yourselves, and change your life forever.

Rhetorical Questions These are questions that are directed at the readers, but do not require answers. Again the readers feel as if they are being spoken to directly. For Example: Visit King Minas Palace at Knossos to see where Theseus made his way through the labyrinth to slay the legendary half-man, half-bull monster The Minotaur. Can you face the challenge?

You could also think about using one or more of the following approaches, To help persuade your readers. 1. Persuasive words or phrases 2. Personal Pronouns 3. Informal Language 4. Repetition 5. Presentational Devices Persuasive Words or Phrases

These will make your audience think that they should either agree with your point of view or else be seen as unreasonable. For Example: Obviously, without a doubt, undeniably, surely, definitely, certainly etc. Personal Pronouns When you use personal pronouns such as: We, us, you.

You are trying to involve the reader directly. Informal Language Addressing your audience as if you know them, by using informal or colloquial language, can be an effective means of persuasion. Using language in this way gives a conversational tone to the writing and can make the reader regard you as a friend. Repetition

If you say something just once, it can be easily forgotten so, if you have a certain message to get across, try to ensure that you say it more than once. Remember your presentational devices! Headings Sub-headings Paragraphs Bullet Points Bold Type

Exclamation Marks Photographs Task 4 - How can we take good photographs? For your travel guide you will need to take great photographs. Try watching this video for tips: http:// You will need to take your own original photographs. See this site for tips: Think about the types of photos you could take: Now with a partner, go round school and try and take a great picture of: a view; a building; and a person Task 5 - How can we create a questionnaire? For the travel guides you will need to describe and explain how one aspect of Peng Chau has changed.

This could be a social, economic or environmental change. You could use primary or secondary sources to help you. Interviewing people is one example of a primary source. Design a simple survey to use to ask people how Peng Chau has changed in living memory. This may have to be done in Cantonese. How can we create a questionnaire?

Purpose To find out? How the island has changed in living memory and why has it changed? Audience Who to ask? One or two local residents of the island who have lived their for a long time. Formality How to ask? Formally, youve never met these people before, you have to be polite and respectful.

Example of Bad Questions What do you remember about the past? What's wrong with this question? Good Questions Why are these better? Could you describe how the population of the island has changed in your life?

Could you describe how the environment of the area has changed? What type of jobs do people in this area have now and in the past and what do they do now? Before you ask questions Introduction- Excuse me I am a student from Island School Hong Kong, please could you spare a

couple of minutes to answer some questions about how the island has changed? Task 6 - Researching Secondary Sources Your last task today is to research primary or secondary sources that can tell us about how Peng Chau has changed. This could be a social, economical or

environmental change. Try this website to track down photos: http:// Also try library books and google to find out more about Peng Chau.
