Assess the extent to which there are interrelationships between processes in water cycle and factors

(0)
Three resources in one document that will need two one hour lessons to complete or one lesson followed by homework. This has been written for the teaching the new AQA A level Geography however this unit is also found within the other A level Geography specifications. Resource 1 - Sorting activity related to the carbon and water cycle. This helps with synoptic links and includes a section that links the water cycle to carbon fluxes by volcanoes. Resource 2 - Model answer for the following question - Assess the extent to which there are interrelationships between processes in water cycle and factors driving change in the carbon cycle. (20 marks) Resource 3 - An alternative question with a plan to help students to apply knowledge from one essay question to another. This helps them to develop their skills in applying their knowledge to different questions.
‘The Disaster Response Curve (The Park Model) in relation to tectonic hazards.

‘The Disaster Response Curve (The Park Model) in relation to tectonic hazards.

(0)
‘The Disaster Response Curve (The Park Model) has contributed to improved understanding and therefore management of the impact of tectonic hazards.’ To what extent do you agree with this view? [20 marks] Students I teach find it difficult to evaluate the Park model and as AQA released an example of this in relation to tropical storms, I have decided to create a tectonic version instead. The first version of the essay contains too much content and I use this to get students to discuss the validity of the arguments in each paragraph. Students then decide on which paragraphs should be omitted. The second page of the source contains the edited version with an outline of table that students can use to summaries the advantages and disadvantages of the model.

To what extent do the advantages of globalisation outweigh the disadvantages? [20]

(0)
Globalisation teaching activity and model answer for the new A level Geography curriculum. To what extent do the advantages of globalisation outweigh the disadvantages? [20] (or 25 marks under WJEC) AQA are yet to release a direct globalisation essay question so I have taken this question from an exam paper released by WJEC. This is still from the new A level. The resources I have created consist of: A sorting activity which encourages students to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of globalisation for TNC’s, NEE/LIC’s and HIC’s. A model answer for students to examine. This model answer helps to show students how to apply knowledge and create an introductory paragraph as well as an evaluative conclusion.

2021 AQA  Water & Carbon revision

2021 AQA Water & Carbon revision

(0)
This resource pack includes revision material to help prepare students for the water & carbon unit of the AQA Geography course. However, these materials would also be useful for AS & A level courses from other exam boards. A case study of a river catchment(s) at a local scale appeared in AQA Geography AS exam during 2017 however, it is yet to appear in the AQA exam for A2, so I have decided to focus in greater depth on this section for 2021. The specification lists this case study at the end of the unit & asks students to “examine the themes above” (i.e. carbon cycle as well as the water cycle) therefore to develop lateral thinking skills I have focused on helping students to consider how the changes in the carbon cycle can impacts upon the drainage basin system. Resources included: Three & half pages of key terms with definitions. 2a) Model answer for the following question: Assess the extent to which there are inter-relationships between processes in the carbon cycle and factors driving change in the flows and stores of water within river catchment(s) at a local scale. (20 marks) 2b) Previous model answer adapted into a model answer for the following question: (Please note this not a completely different model answer) Assess the potential impacts of human interference in the carbon cycle upon run-off variations for a river catchment(s) at a local scale. (20 marks) This essay is VERY similar to the previous example; however, it can be used to show how prior knowledge can be adapted to different questions. List of sources that have been used within the previous model answer. The link to the National River Flow Archive it of much use. These model answers could easily be adapted to a local river elsewhere in the country, perhaps one that is local to the students that you teach. Additional question and plan that students can use to further develop their exam technique.
