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

A Tale of Two Cities: London & Mumbai
srackleysrackley

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? 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 please leave me some kind feedback and consider buying me a ‘coffee’ at https://ko-fi.com/O5O3GPPK. You can find a wide range of other resources at my blog: https://www.geogramblings.com
Wind Farm Decision Making GIS
srackleysrackley

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!

Ecotech (Sustainable Development) Virtual Tour

A virtual tour of the Ecotech (Green Britain) Centre in the UK, for those who can’t go there for real! A good exploration of sustainability. Sadly, the Green Britain Centre shut down in February 2019. Effectively, this is the only way you can ‘visit’ the Centre for now! *This is a legacy resource, and so has been permanently discounted down to £1. * If you really like this resource and want to support me a little more, please consider also buying me a ‘coffee’ at http://ko-fi.com/kitrackley :) EcoTech Virtual Tour by Kit Rackley is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.

Introduction to the African national of Malawi using a map and photos, where students use the “development compass rose” for analysis. Contains differentiated worksheets.

Virtual London Field Trip

Virtual London Field Trip

(0)
We take our Year 9 students (8th Graders) to London each year, and there are a handful of those who don’t go. So I invested a few hours into turning our trip into a virtual tour. Students take an urban-transect of London, ‘visit’ the London Docklands, walk along the riverside and see sites from London Eye.

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!

A fun way of exploring what is meant by stereotypical views and perceptions using the Simpson’s visit to the UK! This pack contains differentiated resources, including a Polish EAL version. It is not totally necessary, but for full use of these resources you need the episode of The Simpsons where they visit the UK (“The Regina Monologues”). The ‘letter’ task makes for a nice homework.

We have a unit on World Sport which covers that year’s major international sporting event. This lesson is about the participants of the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

UK Links With Malawi (Imports and Exports)

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! This is a legacy resource, and so has been permanently discounted down to £1.

Tourism In The Alps & Climate Change

(0)
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.

North Norfolk Coastal Management (Case Study)
srackleysrackley

North Norfolk Coastal Management (Case Study)

(1)
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!

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.
