I create GCSE AQA 9-1 and OCR B resources as well as AQA A level resources. I pitch to the top-end and differentiate down. My resources are designed to be followed easily by my team so they are easy to use in your classrooms. I am the HoD in a very successful state school. 75% of all GCSE geography results were at A* and A grade 90% of A Level grades were A*-B

Revision PowerPoint for OCR B Geography Key Themes

Revision PowerPoint for OCR B Geography Key Themes

(1)
This is the PowerPoint I use for about 50 students in a classroom for Easter revision session which lasts two hours at least. It is 51 slides long and includes revision tips, case study stuff, geographical skills work, past questions, recapping key terms etc. I am going to admit it's not my best work since there's a lot of slides of just exam papers/mark schemes in there and it's not got the aesthetics of my usual work. It did the job and it's still worth £3 since there are 4 or so really good slides in there where I have written full mark answers myself and you could print them off for pupils..). If you're a good teacher you can use this as a base for revision lessons rather than re-inventing the wheel and get good outcomes. I also have a better one for SDME revision and also 'tips for doing well' which I'm quite proud of and will upload it soon!
LGBT assembly, tackling homophobic bullying

LGBT assembly, tackling homophobic bullying

(0)
I created this assembly (could also be used as a lesson) to tackle homophobic bullying in our school. It re-educated pupils about what it means to be LGBT, the history of LGBT since 1967 when homosexuality was decriminalised, the use of the word ‘gay’ today and other homophobic language, statistics about LGBT students and bullying, impacts of bullying on the victim etc and includes clips and resources from the Stonewall campaign. It includes a page about how sexuality is only one part of a person’s identity. There is a script accompanying each slide for you to read out. I would estimate that this would last around 30 minutes without discussion. If used as a classroom teaching resource it could easily last a full lesson. I got really good feedback from this from leadership, teachers and pupils…I hope you enjoy it - please do leave a review if you have time! There is one page you will have to edit to give details of your own local LGBT/ bullying services.
Dynamic Development OCR B Geography whole unit inc. Zambia case study

Dynamic Development OCR B Geography whole unit inc. Zambia case study

(1)
This set of resources consists of two large PowerPoints and three class work booklets which covers the entire Dynamic Development topic, step-by-step. The accompanying textbook we have referred to is the yellow OCR B by Oxford Publishing. This resource includes everything you need to print and teach this topic, or use for revision. There are two worksheets not included which you can get off the OCR website called ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom’up’. I also refer to the MDGs progress report to evaluate how well Zambia met them. My lessons include detailed title slides, ‘do now’ activities as well as ‘knowledge quizzes’ for AfL mini-tests, exam questions, model answers, hinge questions, video clips and photographs and much much more! The price reflects the time it took me to plan this unit.
Changing Places (AQA) Unit in a PowerPoint

Changing Places (AQA) Unit in a PowerPoint

(2)
I am HoD in a top state school and I run a PGCE Geograpy… I created this PowerPoint for all of my taught Changing Places lessons. All lessons are in one PowerPoint and I have written notes under slides to explain them or elaborate or to give teaching strategies. It’s not completely self-explanatory in the sense that you may wish to adapt parts of it to include images of your own local area for example as further illustrations. There are 127 slides in this resource. I consider it to be high quality and it took me many many hours (hence the price). Best of luck with Changing Places.

Here are my resources I used to teach the AQA Changing Places spec. I hope you find them useful. My students certainly did, since their results were consistently above average for similar centres for this unit with average grade B and a 1.4 residual.
OCR B Geography exam technique and revision tips

OCR B Geography exam technique and revision tips

(3)
I use this PPT to guide through with pupils how to succeed in the OCR B Key Themes (and to some extent SDME) papers - It is based on my experience of how pupils do well (and not well) in exams from using papers I have called back, as well as my mock papers...I am charging £6 because it uses my experience/knowledge of the exam. 75% of my pupils got an A/A* (state school!) There are 11 top tips, some starter activities, example answer, example A* place specific detail, example student answer, past case study questions etc. You could print the top tips out for pupils if you wish. There are 31 slides. It would take you at least one lesson.
SDME OCR B Geography PowerPoint lessons

SDME OCR B Geography PowerPoint lessons

(1)
This Powerpoint has details of the SDME, exam strategy, sustainability, lots of use of past papers/lesson ideas. My students do very well in this exam. The Powerpoint isn't the most organised/slick but you can adapt it to make a few strong lessons for the SDME. The one I focus on is building up the skills over time gradually in the lesson in groups/pairs and then the following lesson approaching the 16 marker which is then peer marked. It would be useful to buy my SDME booklet with this resource!

I use these 4 ppt slides for 'everything you need to know' guides for the four OCR B Economic Development Case studies by printing them off in A4 colour. The students say they love having everything they need to reach A* on one page. Our 9 mark case study questions are our best performing question each year in comparison to national average! I also have packs for the Rivers and Coasts and Natural Hazards. In all honesty, these are the least polished of the three but they still do the trick! I print all the cards off as one pack.

Changing Places AQA Meaning and Representation

(0)
This is an instruction sheet and checklist for everything they need to know in this section to study through your local place. I got pupils to create a personalised project for this part of the spec. Some of their work was fantastic. I told them they didn't need to cover the entire table since there is so much in there. Pupils uploaded their projects to share with each other after they were marked. I gave them a few lessons in computer rooms plus a few homeworks and study periods. This project is about Twickenham but you can change the name of your local place study.

Weather Hazards AQA 9-1 PPT lessons

(0)
This ppt includes all of the lesson material for this part of the spec - It took me 6 or 7 lessons, though it could take up to 8 lessons for lower ability pupils. I am the HoD in a top performing state school. I also run a PGCE Geography in a local university. I also used the Teachit Natural Hazards pack alongside my own resources (free online). Each lesson starts with a spec outline and includes learning objectives, starter activities, skills work and lesson activities as well as links to video clips. There are also exam questions. The worksheet resources are also available for sale on Tes should you wish to purchase them to support the lesson presentation. I have written notes below the slides to aid your teaching.

This is a 12 page booklet/worksheets to improve students' 40 mark essay answers. It includes all past questions for World Cities and Development and Globalisation, planning sheet, Waste management plan I made for them (v. detailed as it was their first one so it very prescriptive for what to include), checklist for a top essay, reflection sheet, mark scheme. You could adapt it for your own teaching. Last year some of my students scored over 30/40 in their essays...not an easy feat!

Changing Places Relationships and Connections activity

I gave pupils this outline activity sheet and assigned them each a section of the spec to make a class presentation. I'll be honest it's shameful teaching because it's a part of the spec I at the time couldn't go through in so much detail so it was a bit of pupil-centred learning/research! Some of the presentations were great though. I sent it as an example to AQA of how difficult I was finding teaching the unit and they replied with an answer to each of the points in my activity! Quite amusing and actually pretty useful document!
