Paper 2 Bowl Game resource
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.
Four more podcasts added to podcasts.geographyalltheway.com
I have added four more podcasts to podcasts.geographyalltheway.com bringing the current total to 211 curated podcasts for IB DP Geography.
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.
New question added to the 'Infographic exam style questions' page
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.
Revising Unit 2 - Global climate - vulnerability and resilience through pictures
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.
Paper 2 Case studies and detailed examples matrix
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.

Try the KFC approach to exam questions
I rather liked this exam question breakdown approach from @JB_GeogTeacher.
I like this question breakdown technique as an alternative to BUG from @Geog_enquirer. First time I've seen this one. pic.twitter.com/Nrg1aBs7n2— JB GeogTeacher 🌍 (@JB_GeogTeacher) March 4, 2021
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.
New 'Locate and differentiate elements of the Earth’s surface' page added
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.
The page is currently free to access for everybody and can be found as part of the 2019 IB DP Geography → IB DP Geography Exam preparation section of the site.
Please do get in contact via email / Twitter / LinkedIn if you have any feedback upon the infographics and the exam style questions.
