This is a knowledge-rich booklet of nine sequenced lessons, designed to be printed in schools, for use as a first topic in a Year 7 Geography curriculum.
Making use of the latest in cognitive science, lessons start with structured retrieval practice, with recurring spaced opportunities for practice and an interleaved approach.
Focusing on disciplinary literacy, each lesson features age-appropriate text for Year 7 students, taking the time to examine and breakdown the etymology and morphology of key vocabulary.
The unit is ambitious in scope, supports middle leaders in achieving a consistent approach, and is written with the intention that non-specialists are fully able to teach it.
In short, this is a great resource for teaching Geography in your school, making use of the latest in research, and exceeding the expectations of the new Ofsted focus on curriculum.
