City Of Petra, Jordan – Tourism

For five hundred years Petra was forgotten by the outside world, a fiercely  guarded secret known only to the local tribe’s people. However a  gentleman named Burckhardt, a ninetieth century adventurer tricked his way in by posing as an Indian who wanted to make a sacrifice at the tomb of a prophet. 
Today Petra is renowned worldwide and protected as a World Heritage  Site, yet it is under threat. Time is taking its toll as the red sandstone used to build the city is soft and crumbling and Petra is in  danger of being worn away. 
The Petra National Trust has called upon your students to put signs  up to help tourists behave in a way to help preserve site. They need to  design three signs for this project, but first need to consider the site  they are meant for and how the signs should look.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
