AQA 9-1 GCSE Geography - The Global Circulation Part II

AQA 9-1 GCSE Geography - The Global Circulation Part II

This resource starts where the previous lesson left off, by getting students to recall what they learned about the global circulation. It then goes into detail about the Hadley, Ferrel and Polar cells with some cultural references that will appeal to teachers born in the 1970s who listened to Spandau Ballet ("Tony Hadley was not a meteorologist") and watched 'Victoria Wood as Seen on TV'. Go on, you know you want to buy it and inject a bit of humour into your lesson.

Hazards - End of topic test AQA A-LEVEL (lesson 22)

Hazards - End of topic test AQA A-LEVEL (lesson 22)

This is a summative assessment that I have constructed to mimic the AQA A-level style of questioning. The assessment is designed to assess learning within a 1 hour lesson on key content of the hazards topic, with some questions on water and carbon as a incentive to continue revision and build knowledge on a previous topic. This 40 mark assessment should be completed in 50 minutes (which should just about allow students who have extra time to also complete in an hour session, give or take 2/3 minutes).To support this I have also created a mark scheme/guidance sheet, which includes level break-down and descriptors for all the questions.
