This scheme of work reflects content changes to the KS3 Geography syllabus. The Geography Student Leaders and members of the Geoggers extra-curricular club were heavily consulted and part of this unit has been written up in partnership with them (thank you!). The scheme of work takes a location-based approach covering many different aspects of physical and human geography, but also introduces relatively ‘new’ concepts such as conflict/war and international interdependence (e.g. migrant labour). This scheme also is designed to be the first real occasion where students rigorously practices their extended writing (PEE) and introduces themed-based GIS. This scheme of work is assessed by a written report which explicitly asks students to recall the learning in class. As a whole unit, this scheme of work is expected to take around 12-14 hours.
Not all resources could be uploaded (e.g. the Human Planet and Planet Earth videos, and the Lesson 8 Aegis GIS file - but I can supply that on request).
I would be very grateful if you could review our work, in order to help others judge whether the resource(s) are useful, and how they could be improve them. Thanks!
