"Examine" 8-mark coastal defence qu task

(0)
This resource is designed for Edexcel’s Geography GCSE A specification (9-1) paper 1, which has 8-mark “Examine” questions on the UK Landscapes section only. There is an exam-style question based on a photographic resource, and there are hints given to support pupils in developing their response. There is also a full-page writing frame if required to support pupil responses. Lastly there is a model answer which follows the writing frame’s structured approach, but would be strong enough to score a top-band mark. The actual topic of the question is the changes in the coastal landscape caused by hard and soft engineering. The materials here could be used in a range of ways. For example pupils could be given the model answer to mark against the generic Edexcel descriptors. Pupils could be asked to highlight which parts of the model answer are evidence derived from the photographic source, and which parts of the answer are explanations of the changes in the landscape. Pupils could attempt the question for homework or as an assessment activity.
