DME Resits (Yr11)

Those of you resitting the DME (at least those of you who are not STILL on holiday...) will be interested to know that the resource booklets are in school and you will be receiving them soon.

I've been at a meeting this afternoon to discuss ideas and put together some teaching resources, and we'll get some lunchtime/after school sessions up and running soon.

In the meantime, the theme (as you should know by now) is "Local shops for local people?", so you can get thinking about what the issues might be, and do a bit of research. I've put a few links together here and will continue to add to this list. If you find anything particularly interesting, either leave a comment here with the link, or email it to me and then everyone can benefit.

To add to the information you already have about Cadbury from our visit and from the DVD, etc., it is worth having a look at the Cadbury website and their corporate website.

Remember, Cadbury will cover several case studies (secondary industry, industrial location factors, TNC, Fairtrade, LEDC development/aid project...) for the Economic Systems and Development unit, so it is in your interests to know it inside out!
