Football: Geography In Action

This booklet introduces students to the global links within sports, specifically football. We investigate the origin of top players and how these have changed over twenty years. Child labour, shanty towns and The Atlanta Agreement are discussed in relation to Brazil readying itself to host the 2014 Word Cup. The unit concludes with the students considering whether they think Brazil should have held the World Cup having considered the social economic and environmental impacts.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet including map reading and annotating, gathering research from print and students drawing their own conclusions from materials gathered.

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.
