For the last 18 months or so I have been moving the resources on geographyalltheway.com to a new platform. The new platform allows the content to be more responsive to different devices as well as making it easier for me to update and monitor.
I have recently finished added all of my 14-16 MYP Individuals and Societies (MYP 3 to 5) resources to the new platform.
Now to start work on moving the Age: 11-14 resources (MYP 1-3 or Key Stage 3) to the new platform. I will post as I add each unit.
I have added a Paper 2 version of a fun vocabulary revision game - 'the bowl game'. The resource and instructions can be found on the IB DP Geography - Paper 2 revision page and is downloadable as a PDF.
The four I have added are a series from the BBC World Service's The Compass podcast. The series is titled → Water: Too Much And Not Enough. I have added the podcasts to the Freshwater geographic theme but there is definite overlaps with Unit 3.
I have added a new question to the Infographic exam style questions page. There are now 7 infographics and related questions on the page.
The new questions are based on the following infographic →
Feedback on the questions is always welcomed.
I produced this resource to help my students revision Unit 2 - Global climate - vulnerability and resilience. The resources is basically a set of images that cover the major elements of the unit. The students needed to annotate the images with how they linked to the required content, their significance and the questions they could be asked about such things.
This resource can be found embedded upon the Unit 2: Global climate - vulnerability and resilience revision page.
Quick post for a matrix I created, a couple of weeks ago, for a revision lesson. Started off with an 'active recall' approach of seeing what students could remember, then discussion and then onto reviewing notes.
I am trying to be more proactive about posting (telling site users) about things I have added and changed. Let's see how long this approach continues.
Today [Friday 9th April 2021] will see the 7th edition (and 2nd virtual one) of the Geographical Association Conference TeachMeet.

Here is the line up of stories →
Comments will be used for Q&A after each talk, time permitting!
I rather liked this exam question breakdown approach from @JB_GeogTeacher.
After having using it successfully, for a couple of weeks, with my DP2 students I decided to produce a version for the classroom wall. Here it is if you fancy downloading it →
I have also added it to the Geography Classroom Display Material page on geographyalltheway.com.
UPDATE - source of the KFC idea → Developing AO3 Skills.
I have developed a new page to support the 'map skills' needed by IB DP Geography students. The page → 'Locate and differentiate elements of the Earth’s surface - aka Map skills' is broken down by the skills listed in the guide. The page includes exam style questions to illustrate how each of the skills may need to be applied along with some useful teaching materials.
