Sometimes as geography teachers we need to go beyond the textbook by introducing case studies and up-to-the-minute resources to provide KS3, GCSE and A level students with in-depth analysis of physical, human and economic topics.
And indeed it is the up-to-the-minute element which is what many teachers who use Geo Factsheets stress. Because above everything else Geo Factsheets are contemporary and include exam style questions in the topics presented.
With over 1000 schools now subscribing, and with a subscription covering your whole school, there are now over 5000 geography teachers with access to over 600 in depth resources all related to UK geography syllabus specifications.
As a result (and indeed as our many subscribers tell us) students become motivated and engaged in contemporary geography through the images, texts, data, new research and of course the exercises.
Better still they give the more advanced students the chance to go beyond the textbooks in order to achieve the top grades.
Apart from all of the Factsheets already produced, 15 new Factsheets are published each year, along with PowerPoint Presentations, Practice Questions and Answers, Ebooks and Interactive Resources.
Among the topics being covered in new resources in the current academic year we have a Synopsis of 2017: Year of Floods, USA Extreme Weather Events 2017/18, Carbon Cycle Fieldwork Techniques, Coastal Management on the Isle of Wight, Global Commons Case Studies: Ocean Management Issues, The Paris Climate Agreement of 2015: Can it work?, The Rohingya Refugee Crisis and What makes some cities more liveable than others?
You can see more examples of the topics being covered here, and if you would like to receive two completely free examples of the Factsheets that we are producing simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and write “Free Geography Factsheets” in the subject line.
I do hope you will join the growing number of schools that are using this contemporary approach to geography at KS3, GCSE and A level. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
