General Discussion / new revision resources for AQA A GCSE
« Last post by Gary Dawson on Today at 06:07:07 PM »
I have produced some new revision resources for the AQA A GCSE. They can be found at the classroom resources website. The link can be found below.

The promotional information is attached below.


GCSE AQA A Geography Flash Card Revision

This resource will be useful for students in their revision throughout and at the end of their Geography GCSE AQA A course. It is based on what successful students have described as one of the most effective revision techniques they have used.

It is an idea that has been further developed from observing a son’s keen interest in collecting football cards and it is fascinating to watch how children collect and make use of these cards and how these cards are stored.

An extensive checklist of questions based on the specification and past exam questions for the popular AQA A geography specification has been produced providing a valuable planning and revision resource. It can be used by teachers and students to plan curriculum coverage and identify strengths and weaknesses.

Answers to accompany all of these questions are designed to provide the sufficient knowledge to help students achieve an A* and cover the gaps in the resources provided by other authors, especially when it comes to more lengthy answers, but in particular for case study questions.

There are also flashcards for all 372 questions. On one side of a flashcard is a question and on the other the answer. These cards are in PowerPoint and if you print off the documents back to back they are then ready to be cut up. There are a maximum of nine cards and answers on an A4 sheet.

These resources are for the 6 most popular topics therefore providing the curriculum coverage needed for the AQA A specification.
?Restless Earth
?Water on the Land
?Coastal Zone for the Physical Paper 1
?Changing Urban Environments
?Globalisation
?Tourism for the Human Paper 2

8 Powerpoint presentations including 96 separate slides. 2 Word documents including 149 Pages

Once purchased, this resource can be freely copied and networked throughout the school.




Big thanks
Gary

Afternoon all,

So the last of my department Flip Cams has died and I'm looking to replace them. Can any recommend something that is easy to use, fairly no-frills and not likely to be broken easily?

Thanks,
Dave

General Discussion / Shared resources
« Last post by c.barton on May 04, 2016, 05:04:43 PM »
Hi guys. I have seen the pinned thread about the upload day but feared few people will check it for new resources.

I am wondering whether anybody would be willing to share any resources? Swap for swap kind of deal. I currently have 13 gig (size mainly from videos but there are over 10-15 topics in total for KS3/4) of geography resources i'm willing to share. I have everything uploaded to a google drive account and would be willing to swap and share with anyone who has anything to give back.

The quality dips in places as a lot of these lessons have came from other schools who have shared their resources with me however it can give people something to work with.

I'd also be willing to create a shared drive everyone can use on this site so we could perhaps upload a complete topic once a term so everybody can swap and share.

If you're interested in this arrangement drop me a pm and I'll give you the login details for the drive account. If anyone is interested in the idea of having a public shared drive each of us could use, then please post here. Google drive offers 15 gig for free but if there are any others which could offer more for free then please let me know.

It was a QED programme - I think called Tokyo Earthquake which aired in 1993.  We used to show it when teaching Japan, but got rid of that unit about 3 years ago.  Don't think I can help with the programme - I recall in the last year of teaching that the video had gone missing

General Discussion / Really Old TV programme - Earthquake Impact Japan
« Last post by Allan M on May 01, 2016, 07:43:33 PM »
Bit of a long shot but can anybody remember the name of this programme and it might be 15 to 20 years old. The programme simulated how people could be killed in the even of an earthquake in Japan. Very 'clean' but effective. For example, glass falling from the ground and people die (not visually but implied). Probably a programme like Horizon or something of that ilk.

Investigations of coastal landforms tend to be more descriptive than investigations of coastal processes. Here are some possibilities:

Is there a link between cliff gradient and the presence of a beach?
Is there a relationship between geology and coastal landforms?
An investigation into the coastal processes and landforms which are present along a coastline.


Back to the 1970s. Who really cares about these questions, or who can't answer them by looking?
