Changing Places (30 lessons)

Changing Places (30 lessons)

This is a full scheme of work (30 lessons) for Changing Places. I am a senior examiner for AQA and have been successfully teaching at A level for many years. My resources are intended to have longevity and are easy to follow so that they can be used by any member of staff. The SOW is fully resourced and every lesson has a sheet which goes with it. Every three lessons, there is a homework sheet. Most of the resource materials are in the powerpoints, but there is also reference to the Oxford text book. I have used David Redfern’s text book for some of the homework tasks (I photocopied the chapter to give to students.) I have already used this SOW in full last year (we taught AS) and it was very successful. I am currently teaching it again to this year’s cohort and am updating content on here that I have made improvements to. Students really engaged with the topic and almost all achieved their target grades in the exam. Case studies - Local - Didsbury, Manchester and Distant - Dharavi, Mumbai. Fonts and colour scheme are the same throughout! UPDATE (May 2018): I have added a revision powerpoint to this scheme of work which contains all of the relevant details from each of the two main place studies. If you would like more revision resources for this topic, please download my new resource entitled: ‘REVISION - Changing Places (10 lessons) AQA. Includes model answers.’

REVISION - Water and Carbon Cycles (9 lessons) AQA. Includes model answers.

I am a senior examiner for AQA at A level and have extensive teaching experience. My resources are designed to be easy to follow, and can be used by teachers at any level. This short scheme of work is intended to give students the opportunity to re-visit the content of the Water and Carbon Cycles topic, whilst improving their time management and practising a range of revision techniques which will give them the resilience to revise more efficiently in their own time. The lessons go through the course content in a logical order and students are encouraged to embrace familiar techniques such as flash cards, as well as those which may be less familiar, such as 'Read, Cover, Write, Check.' Every lesson comes with an accompanying worksheet which includes everything from the Power Point, and means that students can easily file their notes and return to them. Please note that these lessons do not contain detailed subject content for the re-teaching of this topic. Students are directed to re-visit their own notes from lessons on this topic and also to use the text books and revision guides, especially if there are any gaps in their files. The books I would recommend are the Oxford Human Geography Book and the CGP Revision Guide. The lessons include: Model answers for 12 practise questions. Short quizzes on key terms Homework tasks Exam tips and motivation Frequent reference to the specification Also included when you purchase this resource: A word and phrase bank which is divided into relevant sections and referenced throughout the scheme of work. A booklet containing every question from the specimen papers and additional specimen papers, and from the 2017 AS paper; with space for students to write answers. A booklet containing the relevant figures for all the specimen questions. A booklet containing the AQA mark schemes for all the specimen questions. Best wishes to you and your students. Please leave a review. *Also available in my shop: A revision scheme of work for Changing Places* Please note that the previews show distortion to some of the files but that once you download them, everything is neat, organised and nothing overlaps.

The Water & Carbon Cycles - Practise Questions with Model Answers. Revision. AS & A Level. AQA.

The Water & Carbon Cycles - Practise Questions with Model Answers. Revision. AS & A Level. AQA.

In this resource are model answers for all 12 of the practise exam questions in the Oxford text book for the Water and Carbon Cycles. Students are guided through the questions using a variety of methods, which keeps them on task and helps them improve their exam preparation skills. The accompanying worksheet includes all of the content from the slides and spaces for students to write notes and answer each question. This means that they can easily return to, and make sense of, all work completed in class. If timings are followed, completing these tasks will take about three hours of class time. I have started using this technique to help students improve their writing style as they commented that mark schemes provided by the exam board are too detailed and complex, and they would prefer to see examples of the type of answers which would achieve full marks. Answers refer to our school’s chosen case studies – the Amazon Rainforest and the River Mersey, so do remind your students to use their own case studies. I am a senior examiner for AQA at A level and have extensive teaching experience. My resources are designed to be easy to follow, and can be used by teachers at any level. Please do not buy this resource if you have already bought my Water and Carbon Cycles revision scheme of work, as the questions and answers are the same. I have not yet written a model answer for the 20 mark question, but do watch this space. Please note that the previews show distortion to some of the files but that once you download them, everything is neat and organised and nothing overlaps.
