One of those teachers who spends way too much time on presentation and aesthetics as well as content, but I believe this makes many of my resources appealing and engaging. Creating resources is one of my favourite parts of the job. I also keep myself very well read and traveled, so I like to believe all my resources are very well informed and sourced through experiences. If you really like my free resources, I'd be very happy if you could buy me a coffee at https://ko-fi.com/O5O3GPPK

KS3 Glaciers Scheme of Work & Resources

KS3 Glaciers Scheme of Work & Resources

(14)
I would like to share with you all our department’s scheme of work on glaciers. It was co-written with student leaders and hopefully you will find some or all of it useful! This scheme also refers to relevant video clips from a field trip to the USA (http://youtu.be/qC5ZvFeFThU and http://youtu.be/kfrUB8mdYAI) Feel free to download all the resources or [glacier] cherry-pick. ;) I would be very grateful if you could review my work, in order to help others judge whether the resource(s) are useful, and I how I could improve them. Thanks! Why FREE? *While the resource is my own creation, it contains elements from other sources (which are cited/referenced where possible). But I do work very hard on making resources that are effective and engaging, so if you feel like that’s worth reward please leave me some kind feedback and/or consider purchasing one of my paid resources! You could also buy me a coffee at https://ko-fi.com/O5O3GPPK. :) * ***I am on sabbatical for the 2017-18 academic year. Please check out my sabbatical blog at http://geogramblings.wordpress.com, documenting my experiences in a way that provides useful insights and resources for teachers!***
KS3 Middle East Scheme of Work & Resources

KS3 Middle East Scheme of Work & Resources

(20)
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. You will need to download the “Sakkal Majalla” font for the text to display properly (easily found online for free). Not all resources could be uploaded (e.g. the Human Planet and Planet Earth videos, the raw files for the card game and the Lesson 8 Aegis GIS file (Aegis3 or Aegis3 Viewer needed) - but I can supply the card game files and GIS file 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!

North Norfolk Coastal Management (Case Study)

North Norfolk Coastal Management (Case Study)

(0)
Our legacy GCSE (senior) students needed to get their teeth into detailed case studies for their exams, so we try to structure resources in a way that allows them to summarise complex and specific information. Since our school is in Norfolk, UK, we have a great example of coastal management along our coastline, with a wealth of information from the authorities. Here I've put them together in a way that helps students to summarise the info they need. The resources contain citations to the information if you want/need to take this case study further!

Tourism In The Alps & Climate Change

I remember reading the giant IPCC report on Climate Change as part of my degree, that time spent actually came in handy later as I used the report to rustle up a handout about climate change in the Alps as part of a unit about tourism. I ended up turning it into a whole lesson activity.

Time to head west? (Rural-to-Urban Migration in The Gambia)

(0)
Students explore push and pull factors of rural-to-urban migration in LEDCs/developing countries using a set of mystery cards. It is based on a woman who lives in rural Gambia. The task encourages co-operative and dialogic learning, and then asks them to apply the idea into over contexts. Time to head west?

UK Links With Malawi (Imports and Exports)

(0)
I created this resource for visiting Primary Schools as part of a Malawi Conference, involving teachers from Malawi through the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. The cards are a fun way to explore what Malawi exports to the UK, and the spider diagram gets pupils to attach their lives with the imports brought into the UK. I was expecting older kids than 5 year olds, but it worked from them! All sales from this resource will go to support the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. :)
Wind Farm Decision Making GIS

Wind Farm Decision Making GIS

(0)
Students use a GIS package and a step-by-step guide to make a decision on where to build a wind farm. The area is based around our high school, but nevertheless, it is a good activity to experience decision making! You need the Aegis3 package installed on your school computers. *Unfortunately, the company who produced this program now appears to have disappeared… so unless you already have Aegis3 or Aegis3 Viewer, then you won’t be able to obtain it. Therefore this resource is being offered on a permanent discount, for those out there lucky enough to still have the Aegis3 program!
