We’re working with the SSAT to provide training in critical thinking and problem solving for geography teachers. This is a FREE course and gives primary and secondary teachers the knowledge and approaches they need to effectively integrate the teaching of core skills in their classrooms.

Promotions / CPD Event from the GA: Literacy through geography
« Last post by hbrookes on January 03, 2017, 02:34:03 PM »
Ofsted requires schools to demonstrate high levels of literacy in order to be judged ‘outstanding’. This course will demonstrate how geography can encourage pupils to engage with literacy, providing you with ideas to develop a rich curriculum. 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.

London - Tuesday 7 February 2017

I was paid some money by Costa Coffee to write 3 new resources to add to the 3 I wrote about 4 years ago.
Free registration required, but they can now be downloaded from the website:

Looks interesting. I know someone who taught there and had a great time on the Islands.

Where are you these days Gazz? You were overseas for a while I remember...
General Discussion / Decision Making Exercises
« Last post by nicko427 on December 29, 2016, 03:27:20 PM »
Hi all,

I'm beginning to prepare resources and practice papers for my Year 11s for their GCSE OCR B Sustainable Decision Making exam for the summer which is on the topic of "population and settlements"

Does anyone have any good resources on this particularly for:

- Managing rapidly increasing populations in LEDCs / NICs
- Urbanisation in LEDCs
- Retail (out of town centre v redeveloping high street )

Thanks so much - it was the highlight of the last few days in school. We got so much work done in the penultimate lesson so that we had chance to do the Quiz in the last lesson :)
Happy Christmas and have a good restful break.
