Kampala: A Case Study of a City in LIC

The ‘Kampala: A Case Study of a City in LIC’ scheme of work and resources are written to meet the requirements of the new AQA GCSE Geography specification – Challenges in the Human Environment – Section A Urban Issues and Challenges - A case study of a major city in an LIC or NEE.

The scheme of work aims to be a connected case study – connecting students to real people and places in Kampala (the capital of Uganda) through use of technology. it is the result of a link between The King Alfred School (KAS) in Somerset and the Charles Lwanga School in Kampala. Benedict Ssaazi was able to visit KAS in November 2015 because of a GAIIF award.

If you wish to skype someone living in Kampala you will need to book a slot using the booking sheet available here.

These resources cover topics explained in some of our videocasts, which we recommend you view in addition to this scheme of work for a wider background understanding. The videos, particularly those about urbanisation, urban poverty and development, could be incorporated into the lessons outlined here.

The lesson downloads below are only accessible to GA members. To access these resources, login or join.
