"Excellent... covers all key themes well with clear and precise checklist that matches all elements of the specification... I like the detail in the theory and the use of images and diagrams to explain glaciation. I also liked that key words have been clearly listed with clear vocabulary lists. Diagrams and vocabulary are two of the most difficult parts of this unit which have been handled well... If I was teaching this topic, yes I definitely would buy it!" — A Ali, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer

Like - use of diagrams and labels, links to wikipedia and YouTube, tables showing social, economic and environmental impacts...

"The mix of materials is good... Students like cross words and rearranging letter tiles to break up more standard revision... The resource enhances learning by providing some case study material to support standard theory... It summarises theory for the student whilst providing activities to check learning in a variety of formats (check list of 'can do', exam style questions and games)." — D Taylor, Former Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4369)
"This resource is excellent, its broken down very easily into the seperate sub-topics of the urban environments topic. It is useful as class exercises or to give students as homework... The summaries are very useful as a pre-exam overview, but I mostly like the practice questions, which students always want more of... The resource is a great revision tool for the topic and enables students to check their own understanding in sub-topics and then test it with practice questions for each section... It matches the specification perfectly as it is written specifically for it. It covers every sub-topic and follows the same style questions and markscheme. It also includes lots of the case studies in the AQA endorsed textbook." — L Keeley, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"A good resource to help students understand how the urban environment is different within areas and across the world. It will reinforce what students have learnt either previously... I liked the range of activities, good images, and that key ideas are integrated [throughout] the whole resources... This is a good resource to help students revise and recap their work. I think that some of the resources could be used during class lessons on the topic especially the activities which involve data analysis and the images of the urban land use zones." — E Allsopp, Geography Co-ordinator & Independent Reviewer
"Key ideas clearly set out with good use of key terms. Useful exam-style questions (with answers at the end a real bonus as students can use the resource without teacher support)... The use of images is always good for triggering pupils' thoughts and helping develop understanding... The inclusion of the exam answers is a real bonus, allowing students to use the resource and check their learning on their own. The use of images and diagrams aids understanding and the range of revision activities is good, including cloze exercises, spider diagrams, graphs and crosswords this variety will help pupils stay engaged with the material... By enabling students to work through the material independently, it can be used in conjunction with classroom teaching to prepare pupils for examination. It would also be ideal for students to access on through an e-learning gateway or similar." — D Baker, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
