Does anyone find that these topics end up getting covered by Science in their school?  I've had it happen a  couple of times which is really frustrating.

Promotions / CPD Event from the GA: A level Changing Places: theory and practice
« Last post by hbrookes on February 13, 2017, 01:12:04 PM »
The new geography A level includes place as a new substantive theme and requires a much more explicit use of qualitative and quantitative data, especially in the Independent Investigation. This course will provide you with new approaches to teaching about Changing Places within the context of the new A level specifications. It will explore how you can support students to investigate place and develop qualitative and quantitative data collection techniques ready for the Independent Investigation. Join us to explore Sheffield’s urban context, heritage and diversity to see first-hand the processes that cause places to constantly change and try out practical ideas to investigate places outside the classroom.

Sheffield - Thursday 23 March 2017
London - Thursday 22 June 2017

General Discussion / Land use base maps - Manchester
« Last post by RickD on February 12, 2017, 06:46:33 PM »
Hello,

Please could somebody point me in the right direction for finding some land use maps of Manchester? Ideally some from 1970's / 1980's or anything prior to regeneration of the area that is New Islington now, would be ideal.

thank you

General Discussion / Re: Exciting Earthquake Lesson
« Last post by zcsaa44 on February 10, 2017, 09:56:06 AM »
I love the Montserrat lesson but unfortunately with the spec change we cover only earthquakes now and so cannot do it for GCSE. Will still do it with my year 8 classes though. In regards to stop disasters, my school blocks it - makes me sad so I set it as homework
