Should we build on the green belt? Eduqas Theme 2 and AQA Urban environments

This lesson considers many of the key terms and skills associated with this key question in the syllabus. Students have the opportunity to locate and annotate green belt areas, particularly those close to the CBD and consider the challenges of this. Students make links with previous learning regarding the housing crisis and consider a range of evidence using the A3 task sheet to decide if green belts should be used for housing developments. There is also a consolidation homework task to be completed. All resources are attached, the lesson and the task sheet. This lesson is part of a sequence of lessons that can be found in my shop on rural and urban areas.

Success Building Blocks (Exam command words scaffolding sheet).

Success Building Blocks (Exam command words scaffolding sheet).

This scaffolding sheet is made to enable students to access exam questions by breaking the question down with a focus on command words. This particular resource is made with the AQA GCSE Geography exams in mind, but can be applied to other exam boards and other subjects. Marks have been applied to each command word which are linked to the questions found in the AQA examinations.Students can use this when attempting exam questions. Firstly, they must find the command word along the left hand side of the sheet. They then have to work from left to right completing each 'building block' and as such, building up their answer. Instructions on how to use the sheets are found on the sheet itself.A glossary of key words is found on the reverse of the sheet to aid students, including words such as 'features' and 'characteristics'. As such, this resource is useful for GCSE students, but also KS3.
