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.
Follow along on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/rMW2-3f1E6A live from 18:30 [London].
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.
Produced for a friend - probably useful for others!Oceans-B-Revision-Clock
I have created a new page of 'Infographic exam style questions' on geographyalltheway.com as I help my students prepare for their exams. The page is currently free to access for everybody and can be found as part of the 2019 IB DP Geography → Infographics section of the site.
I haven't produced any mark schemes - but do share if you do!
There is a great new series of podcasts by 'The Compass' on the BBC World Service which is super useful for the teaching of Extreme Environments.
'The New Arctic' has 4 episodes:
- The New Arctic: Communities under threat
- The New Arctic: Resource extraction
- The New Arctic: Tourism
- The New Arctic: Power
I added a new (little) feature yesterday. Now when you come across a IB DP Geography command term it is underlined and when you roll your mouse across the word - there is a tip that appears with the explanation of the requirements of the term.
Just a little feature - but hopefully it will be useful!
I have been adding more prompts and structure to each page of geographyalltheway.com to ensure productive student outcomes.
All of Units 1 to 6 - all of Paper 2: Global Change and Paper 3: Global Interactions - now have additional prompts and questions to support remote learning.
If you require any help with geographyalltheway.com - it's use with students, broken links, missing videos or arranging access to the subscription content - please get in contact.
