Edexcel Cultural Geography Contexts

Those teachers who have opted for the Edexcel 'A' level specification in the UK (for students aged 16-18), there is a unit called "The World of Cultural Diversity".
Today, the pre-release titles were announced.
Students will be expected to prepare

OPTION 4: The World of Cultural Diversity

• Explore what is meant by a global culture, how it is defined and, if it exists, what its characteristics are.

• Research contrasting locations, some of which show the effects of cultural globalisation and others which seem to be resisting the process.

Would be interested in hearing the thoughts of any blog readers on any suggested resources or thoughts on these particular contexts...

I was wondering whether you had any ideas on what sorts of things we should look at for this research topic.

Head over to the Edexcel NING, where you will see discussions on this particular topic by teachers who are teaching the spec.

I tried to sign up but I am still awaiting the confirmation email. It just isn't coming. I'll try again though.

The Ning Network is for teachers not students James. Ask your teacher to sign up if he/she hasn't already and pass on the information that's contained. There's also some guidance on the Edexcel exam board website...

Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please answer to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at cultcha.blogspot.com could post it.

Thanks,
Thomas
