Teacher Feedback on the First Edition
'Excellent... liked the depth and detail, layout - informed and informative... I particularly like this resource because it accessed all levels - higher and foundation in bite size chunks... they could use it in many ways, ie cut out, colour in - put in to books at key points... this is an easy cost and effective way to get relevant information across.'J Wilkinson, Head of Geography and Customer
'Very useful. A proportion of students will not read tedious notes or use textbooks but will use informative materials like this. It breaks topics up into clear strands. Perfectly designed for AQA Spec A GCSE.'D Langford, Subject Leader for Geography and Customer
'Pupils really liked the worksheets - very clear and concise. Good way of revising as the whole topic is on one sheet. Clear, visual, covers all the topic including case studies. Good value for money, good revision technique for pupils. 'C Ainsworth, Geography Teacher and Customer
"Very pleased, attractive good mix of pictures and words - handwritten style is more appealing than big page of typed print... It is good revision material for those who have badly organised files... It is better than other resources because it doesn't look scary with masses of print... I have already advised other schools to by ZigZag material at Head of Dept meetings." — Y Chidley, Head of Geography & Happy Customer
"The concepts are explained well and students would enjoy exploring the different aspects and linking them to their own notes." — A Barrett, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"Excellent resource as very detailed for students to use without having to add anything as a poster. Especially useful for lower ability students... It is great as a revision tool & like the idea of colouring to sort for low ability and to cut out & extend as some students would like to produce something like this... Very clear presentation, handwriting is clear enough and illustrations are nice... Matches the specification perfectly, includes several case studies from the AQA-endorsed textbook which is helpful. Key concepts and terms from each sub-topic are included." — L Keeley, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"Information summarised in a unit that's fun to look at and easy to read. Did a good job of summarising theory and case studies... I like the format/layout, would be great as table mats especially during revision. Fab presentation and use of diagrams... great for revision, summarises key points in an easy to read and manageable format. good to use as part of AfL in the classroom... This clearly covers the key points in all units of the GCSE specification. For example in the restless earth unit all case studies have been covered (rich and poor areas) with supporting diagrams where relevant- excellent work!" — A Ali, Head of Geography & Independent Reviewer
"A really excellent way of revising key topics... Particularly liked how much information is fitted onto one diagram - this would be a great revision resource... Perfect for revision of key topics." — H Girvan, Geography Teacher & Independent Reviewer
