Ideas for use in class
  • This clip could get students to think about what to do with a brownfield site in their area. Students might create a mind map of the factors they need to consider when justifying their chosen redevelopment proposal while watching the clip. An alternative activity could develop some creative writing on the theme of declining industry, brownfield sites and redevelopment. For example, a poem based on the images from the three clips. The clip could be used alongside Clips 1508 and 1509.
