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!
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.
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.
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.

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.

A3 revision grids - Key Themes OCR B

(1)
I have created an 'all-on-one-page' revision sheet which I print off in A3 for all of my year 11s (a few times..and let them print off their own after that). There is a page for: Rivers Coasts Population Settlement Economic Development (first part) Economic Development (second part) Natural Hazards I also have a Foundation version listed separately. I ask pupils first to revise using their class notes and revision guide. Then they try to complete the grids in as much detail as possible.. Then they go back to see what they missed and add to it. They create one really good perfect one and then use that as the master sheet to go back on when they try another grid again!

Changing Places AQA resources pack inc. advice from the board!

This is a 25 page booklet which I have pasted various resources I have used to teach the Changing Places unit. It includes: Relationships and Connection 'Exploring our place' activity for computer lessons x 2 or homeworks. You will need to adapt to the name of your local place. Homework to collect quantitative and qualitative source and then accompanying lesson activity using a mark scheme to prepare for an exam Q. Information from the AQA board from the Head of Curriculum for Geography answering 12 questions about relationships and connections - this is particularly enlightening! Changing places revision grid for all content to fill in electronically ideally, or perhaps as a group on a Google doc (will need to be adapted to your case study names) Homework on Endogenous and Endogenous factors - could be a lesson instead: 1. How do endogenous and exogenous factors contribute to the character of places? [10] Changing Places quiz out of 67! with answers- mostly in round 1 and 2 but will need to adapt round 3 and bonus round Some slides on lived experience leading to a 20 mark essay grid to complete the new SAM 20 marker from paper 2.

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.
