Maintaining results when moving to Linear GCSEs from Sepetmber 2012

This course is aimed at geography teachers who want to discuss approaches to improving candidate performance in GCSE Geography set against the backdrop of linear assessment starting from September 2012. There will be a focus on how to maintain results using a selection of ideas and skills linked to handling data response as well as more extended writing where there is an increased focus on quality of written communication. It is being held in Stafford.


The objectives of the development activity are...
How and why? Understanding the move to linear GCSE geography;
Re-planning a linear versus modular course;
Maintaining performance;
Skills for shorter answer questions;
Skills for more extended writing answers

The course is led by David Holmes , a teacher, consultant, GCSE and A level examiner, and a creative user of ICT. As a former Field Studies Council teacher he is an expert in fieldwork techniques and of raising students' attainment.
This course does not focus on a specific exam specification; it is to help all teachers of GCSE geography with the changes to new regulations from September 2012
