General Discussion / OCR AS Geography
« Last post by MidAtlantic8 on March 02, 2015, 09:52:21 AM »
Morning all,

I am currently tutoring a student who is taking the OCR AS Geography course.

Does anyone have any exemplar candidate responses that they would be willing to share?

It is just so I can show them what a good answer would look like?

It is for both the physical and human geography papers.

Many Thanks in anticipation.

General Discussion / Geog and Progress 8
« Last post by jazzclub on March 02, 2015, 09:39:29 AM »

Was hoping for a bit of clarification before I go to SLT. Is it compulsory for next years yr 10 to do either Geography or History in order to fulfil the requirements of progress 8. Or, is it possible to choose the other subjects in basket 2 (a language and additional science for instance) and still meet the requirements?

I ask as our present working model, due to staffing expertise, dictates that learners choose either History or Citizenship and then can choose geog as an option.

Any help would be great

General Discussion / Ross Kemp: Britains' Deprived Coast Sky1 Thurs 5th 9pm

"Some of Britain's celebrated coastal towns are in the grip of once unimaginable levels of social breakdown as the boom in cheap foreign holidays has left its own seaside resorts swimming in crime, deprivation and unemployment.

With poverty levels up to three times the national average, many of these iconic towns have become unemployment black spots, while former hotels and guest houses are now being used to home the country's most vulnerable residents.

Ross visits the worst affected areas to investigate the human realities behind their tragic decline, and to find out what can be done to revive their fortunes."

Sounds a lot like the tourist resort life cycle model stuff I've just done with year 10!  Good timing Ross!

Graham's resource downloads for TG subscribers are particularly helpful. Used those earlier this week down in Berkshire with a large group of HoDs :)

Very useful maps there Matt. I guess there are quite a few similar websites for other areas. Currently writing about a different stretch of coastline for a forthcoming GCSE textbook :)
Details on writing for the GA journals here.

General Discussion / Coastal Management - Llandudno

I know a few of you also do what I used to do and take GCSE groups to North Wales for various studies, revision weekends etc. As part of your trip you may visit my old home town, Llandudno. There is some textbook style Geography underway there at the moment and this may provide future visits with an extra dimension. There is a fairly major consultation under way about coastal protection and the town. The recent works to pile rip rap on the north shore (main beach facing pier) caused quite some controversy and so the following forum has been set up for residents to have their say and for proposals to be communicated:

Within the forum are some excellent resources that would make a fantastic DME (which I'll be doing at some point before the summer). e.g.

Proposal 1 - New offshore breakwater -

Proposal 2 - Beach replenishment & breakwaters -

Proposal 3 -  Groynes & replenishment -

Proposal 4 - - Existing Shingle Management -

Also, a number of schemes with the interest of boat users too -

For a bigger picture including longshore drift stats - check out the council page here:

I'll let you know when I've put something together
