Lifelines

Thanks to Jane Dyson from the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford for getting in touch and telling me about a resource that she has been involved in creating, called LIFELINES.


Here's the message from Jane:
I have produced a short (15mins) video portrait from a village in the Indian Himalayas, where I have been conducting research for over a decade. The film, 'Lifelines', tells one man's story of struggle in his remote mountain community. It focuses on the rapid social and economic change in the region, including the increasing availability of, and thirst for, education. I am hoping that the film might be of use to secondary school geography teachers.

The film can be viewed at: http://www.lifelinesfilm.com/

I have worked with a number of teachers to produce a lesson plan and other teaching resources to accompany the film in the classroom (probably at K4/5 level). These resources are no available on the Lifelines website in the Resources section (http://www.lifelinesfilm.com/resources ) 
This section of the website also contains a shortened version of the film (10mins), for those teachers who require a faster paced piece for classroom use. 


This looks like it would be useful for a range of GCSE and 'A' level Geography contexts.
