What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4218)
"Very good. There is very little help for A level teachers in terms of real useable resources. This material is practical and helpful... The suggested answers are very useful for pupils to self assess how they answered the questions... The resource will provide sound case study material as well as exam question practice." — M Finlay, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"Very good with some interesting and appropriate Case studies veering away from the norm... Good to see Northern cities being given their place... New information, obviously passionate about Tanzania and the info then appropriate and well-sandwiched with diagrams... Alternative questions to the texts with answers provided... Spot on match to the spec." — M Ollis, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"Thorough, detailed and informative... accessible to all ability ranges and yet provides enough to stretch the most able... It complements the specification very well in comparing two countries at opposite ends of the development spectrum - one youthful and one ageing... I really liked the information regarding Bradford. There are so few resources out there that cover this aspect of the Population spec, that it is refreshing to have such a comprehensive set of case studies to fit this. I liked the springboard activities and also the shorter case studies covering comparative case studies from outside the UK... The resource hits the nail on the head regarding the settlement case studies part of the spec... Perfect match to the spec - well done! It really is an excellent resource." — J Jagger, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4168)
"A well developed resource that will be very useful for teachers and students. It gives comprehensive detail about a range of floods... Range of examples and resources (photos and maps)... Further study areas is very good... Good clear examples and further studies gives a foundation for independent learning." — T Dixon, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"The exam questions were good, covering a wide range of questions... I particularly liked that the case studies were recent and didn't include the obvious Boscastle & Bangladesh... Great at ensuring that students include all the detail they need in their case studies & dont just think, cause, effect, response, but realise the complexities and the detail needed for AS level... Matches specification perfectly and exam questions follow the same style. Good that it gives two options of contrasting case studies." — L Keeley, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"A very useful resource... very current... I liked that a study text is given for each of the resources, examples of exam questions, and ideas for groupwork... It allows students to relate to recent events which is crucial at A-level standard and compare them to other such similar events on a worldwide basis. It is user friendly and also very accessible to all styles of learner... offers a wide range of primary and secondary source information. Photographs and satellite images are a great way to enthuse and engage learners. The resource offers current case studies which is a vital part of student's understanding of geographical flooding and events... matches the specification well... Would I purchase this resource? Absolutely!" — S Jackson, Deputy Head & Independent Reviewer
"This is an excellent resource... The resource provides vital information for the GEOG1 core rivers unit... Causes and impacts are both vital components and recent case study detail is key to achieving high grades... The booklet in particular is very comprehensive and covers all of the material I would expect at AS level and more... It blends case study detail with good ideas for study... It links very well with the exam board criteria and has good suggestions for practice questions... I liked the suggestions for further reading and possible weblinks... The imagery on the PowerPoints is excellent... I would recommend this resource to my staff as it has a range of approaches that can all be incorporated into schemes of work." — J Jagger, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6088)
"It clearly matches the specification - there is a case study of a TNC, one of an LDC, Costa Rica & Sweden which are both MEDC. The information clearly relates to not only the rich/poor/TNC case studies but also has information on trade vs aid and sustainable tourism. " - J. English, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
Useful explanations of terminology are clearly applied to examples. Good contrast in choice of case study countries with a wide range of content. Comparisons and explanations are in line with those expected in exam answers, therefore provide good models for both content and skills. A large range of issues are contained within the case studies chosen, therefore [this toolkit] can be widely applicable to exam questions. – D. Taylor, Geography Teacher
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5924)
"A highly effect resource pack which will not only support lower ability students in guidance and case study knowledge, but will also stretch and challenge the higher ability students." - G Dhaliwal, Head of Geography
This is a good quality resource providing detailed case studies that support the ecosystems unit - these case studies are often hard to come by in text books in sufficient detail and therefore this does contribute towards some excellent teaching material in this area...the depth of information exceeds that found in text books and is therefore very useful for stretching the pupils at this high level - C Buckler, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
Good resource for the AQA A2 Course. Rich case studies with high factual content and clear structure. The clear layout and the well organised and logical structure of the pack. The inclusion of visual material in the form of frequent photographs and some maps made for a very digestible format. A range of well thought out and relevant questions both at Springboard and Examination level which encouraged focus on the main parts of the syllabus and also classroom based discussion. A good lead into more developed essay style answers.The text was also clear and authoritative with summaries that encouraged candidate revision. - M Thum, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5808)
The layout is clear and the case studies are presented in a well-structured and user-friendly manner... The ‘springboard’ activities should encourage further investigation and the case studies were presented in an easily digestible format. - M Thum, Examiner, Teacher, and Independent Reviewer
The resource is so comprehensive that it could be used as the sole resource by teachers covering this topic. Therefore the educational value of the resource is very high as this is exactly what is demanded by the exam board. - H Waddington, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
