Building on the success of phase one, phase two of The Discovering Oman project saw five talented geographers spend a week in Oman working together and gathering data to produce ten more innovative on-line lesson plans. The plans are UK curriculum linked, and suitable for teachers of geography, economics and environmental sciences in secondary schools, with a focus on the 14-18 year age range.
The plans cover a wide range of topics, including the impact of a recent tropical storm, the evolution of adventure tourism in Oman, the issue of water stress and management and the emergence of Duqm as a strategic port and hub, and as an example of inward investment. Madinat Al Irfan is the focus of a lesson plan on urban development in Muscat, whilst other plans look at the adaptations of flora and fauna to the climate of Oman.
We had great fun making these plans, and hope you enjoy them!
