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

European Migrant 'Crisis' CASE STUDY and DME

European Migrant 'Crisis' CASE STUDY and DME

(0)
Serves both as a GCSE Geography case study and decision making practice. Just a re-jigged resource that I created for the death-throes of the 2012 OCR-B syllabus, but still relevant for the new 9-1 GCSEs. 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!

A Tale of Two Cities: London & Mumbai

A Tale of Two Cities: London & Mumbai

(0)
This scheme of work is designed to start preparing Year 9 students for GCSE by mirroring part of the ‘Urban Issues and Challenges’ section of the AQA Geography GCSE (8035) which considers a case study of a HIC city and LIC city. Since this unit focuses on two cities at the same time rather than one, the focus is often of comparison and connections rather than depth. This scheme of work is assessed by a mock GCSE tier-less examination at the end of the unit. The assessment is linked to the new GCSE 9-1 grades as well as KS3 progress ladders. As a whole unit, this scheme of work is expected to take around 14-15 hours. Not all resources could be provided. However, this scheme has been uploaded ‘as-is’ for you to use, adapt and develop as you wish, but please credit me as the original author. I would be very grateful if you could review my work, in order to help others judge whether the resource(s) are useful, and how they could be improve them. Thanks! Why FREE?

Top Trumps Card Game: NOAA's Greenhouse Gas Sampling Network

Top Trumps Card Game: NOAA's Greenhouse Gas Sampling Network

(1)
The monitoring of greenhouse gases globally is an exceptionally important job and is highly logistical. The Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases (CCGG) group of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Global Monitoring Division (GMD) have locations all around the world from where their greenhouse gas air samples come from. This network is a major part of the global monitoring efforts, collaborating with a large number of organisations and government agencies. In this pack are a set of cards for a selection of 40 greenhouse gas sampling sites. Each card contains a range of information useful for discussion and development of further teaching resources. Some teaching ideas can be found on the 'Teaching ideas’ card and a glossary of each card’s attributes are found on the ‘Attributes glossary’ card. Higher resolution images and a spreadsheet of card data are provided. The cards are set out on letter-sized paper which can be printed directly onto a sticker sheet (Avery 8163 - 2”x4”), trimmed and stuck onto blank playing cards. Alternatively feel free to give the card images to any third-party printer who will make playing cards for you!

Life In The UK (Resource Pack for Developing Nations)

Life In The UK (Resource Pack for Developing Nations)

(0)
This pack has been created by students in the Gifted & Talented Geography group from Framingham Earl High School, Norwich in the United Kingdom. We created this pack as part of a gift to our friends in Umbwi School, Dedza, which is our link school in Malawi as part of the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. The idea was to produce a low-tech visual resource which is honest about life in rural UK. We know it is not perfect, and we wish we had more time to reflect other parts of UK life that are not represented, but we had a lot of fun making it. The resource cards have been completely constructed by the students, with the majority of the photos taken by them too. We hope you enjoy using this resource! Zikomo! (Chichewa for “Thank you!”) This is a legacy resource, and so has been permanently discounted down to £1.

Introduction to the African national of Ghana using a map and photos, where students use the “development compass rose” for analysis. Contains differentiated worksheets. Unlike the Malawi version, you will need atlases or a third-party Ghana/Africa map. This is a legacy resource, and so has been permanently discounted down to £1.

Students as Partners, Not Just Stakeholders

Students as Partners, Not Just Stakeholders

(0)
Lecture delivered at the Geographical Association National Conference in Manchester, April 2016. ‘Students as stakeholders’ is not new, but embedding them into the fabric of the department through leadership, decision making and peer support can breed creativity and energy. This lecture will report on a case study from a high school in Norfolk that shows that, from leading lessons and field work groups to steering department policy, all that is needed is trust in your students. The resource is the lecture handout, with links to the referenced presentation, videos and materials included.

Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

I had the opportunity to visit the Solar Decathlon in Denver 2017. I put together this resource to match the part of most GCSE Geography syllabuses that focus on urban growth and sustainability. Some slides are region-based (east of England) and for the AQA syllabus, but the main learning objectives are very relevant for a range of scales and locations. This powerpoint can be used front-facing; as an independent learning resource or flipped homework task. I strongly recommend you search for and browse the official website, it is very informative!
