How to make an Environmental Quality Analysis Or how to assess how good or bad a place is!
An EQA or Environmental Quality Analysis is : - • One person’s opinion of how good or bad a place is • It can consider human or man-made features • And physical or natural features of an area
Your task • You are going to do six EQAs around the school grounds in pairs • One person will complete one sheet with three locations and the other person will do the other using three different locations – then you will each have a completed sheet for your Geography books
Some possible examples : - • Litter • Noise • Dust • Smell • Appearance
Behaviour • We trust you to behave sensibly • Please tell an adult at once if you see someone misbehave • You must not go into areas where you are not allowed to go normally – except our side of the mobiles • Remember to walk on the ramps and inside • Return to class when you hear a whistle
In pairs, decide on what you want to assess when we walk around the school grounds • Draw up some sort of recording sheet • Decide on 5 or 6 areas where you want to do your survey.
Now do your environmental survey • Can you present your results in a clear way?
Local Walk next week • We need help from parents • We will be looking at good and bad areas of the neighbourhood. Eg. Litter, noise, dust and dirt, traffic, well cared for gardens, pollution, graffiti, smell, green open spaces and appearance including uncared for areas
