GEO:Screen - Teaching through Geographical Documentaries
for KS3 and GCSE Geography
Motivate your students with a passion for global geographical issues and encourage a high uptake of geography at GCSE and beyond. The GEO:Screen resource series teaches a wide range of geographical skills through the screening (and analysis) of a geographical documentary.
Each resource includes:
- A preparation lesson outlining the fundamentals of the topic.
- A structured screening using a timed question grid to get students thinking critically as they watch the film.
- Follow-on lessons to think beyond the documentary and really get to know the issue at stake!
Excellent as a KS3 resource, with a foundation for some KS4 concepts. [on Population] C. Cottam, HoD & Independent Reviewer
