Trying to plan an AS visit (we are based in Chester) to study coastal features - as many as possible covered in the spec. Anyone do a similar visit in the area or have any suggestions for locations that are pupil friendly?
Thanks, Jo

General Discussion / question wall
« on: January 11, 2013, 04:44:50 PM »
I am going to do a 'question wall' and a 'quote wall' and a 'geography hall of fame' wall! Need a catchy title for the first two as question wall and quote wall seem a little uninspiring!
Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Has anyone got this on DVD that I could copy? I will pay for p&p? Manuy thanks, Jo

Bit of a funny one!! Having just been given 'the teachers toolkit' to read over the summer (!!!) there are lots of great ideas - however they require a lot of planning and some are very dependent on time to set up the room, resources etc. To make life easier I was contemplating teaching the simultaneous units to years 7, 8 and 9 and make like a rolling programme so that eventually all years will have studied all topics at KS3! Does anyone have experience with this? Obviously some tasks will need to be altered for ability but the nature of the 'independent learning' described in the book may lend itself well to this? I may be mad to even contemplate it - any thoughts?

General Discussion / extra day!
« on: February 24, 2012, 07:52:45 PM »
I our school, we have been told that on 29th Feb we can teach whatever we like as it is an 'extra day'! Any ideas?! Some staff are doing lessons in knitting, Welsh and line dancing!

Any fancy dress ideas - possibly with a geographical theme?!! We have one pregnant person (me), two women and a man. May not all want to dress up but could get others involved!!

General Discussion / Guided learning hours
« on: October 01, 2010, 07:02:33 PM »
Does anyone know how many guided learning hours the AS/A2 Geography course is? Can't find it on the spec. Basically the head wants us to offer BTEC National in Travel and Tourism in addition to Geography. Just wanted to do the maths / staffing etc. Thanks, Jo
