Promotions / CPD Event from the GA: A level revision conference
« Last post by hbrookes on January 24, 2018, 12:01:20 PM »
Aimed at A level students in schools and colleges

This one-day event will enable A level students to kick-start their revision, offering sessions for all four core subject areas of the new A levels. The themes are common to all four English geography A level specifications, as well as WJEC (Wales). It will enable students to learn:
•   key knowledge and understanding in coastal landscapes, water and carbon cycles, changing places, and global governance
•   ‘tricky concepts’ that students sometimes struggle with in examination answers
•   key strategies for revision
•   skills in developing extended writing using guidance from experienced examiners
•   how to tackle questions and meet the requirements of the new mark schemes.

Because the core subject areas are a common requirement for all the A levels, this conference will suit students who are studying any of the 2016 specifications.

You will reflect upon what you are currently trying to achieve for your students and critically assess the methods you employ. The course will review approaches to student progress, assessment without levels and enquiry learning at key stages 3 and 4.

Promotions / CPD Event from the GA: Literacy through geography
« Last post by hbrookes on January 18, 2018, 01:14:11 PM »
In order to be judged as 'outstanding', Ofsted requires schools to demonstrate high levels of literacy. This course will demonstrate how geography can encourage pupils to engage with literacy, providing you with ideas to develop a rich and relevant curriculum which will give pupils excellent educational experiences. It will explore geography through stories, consider the use of images to develop speaking and listening, and think about sharing and justifying opinions in geography. Opportunities for outdoor work will also be examined, promoting relevant, real-world learning. We will trial the various activities and discuss how they might be adapted for use with your own pupils and school setting.
