Case studies worth a last minute look at

IMG_6448

Question 2 – Changing Urban Environments “Improving Squatter Settlements”

Question 4  – Development Gap “International Aid” (and how it is sustainable)

Question 6 – Tourism “Tourism in an Extreme Environment”

We do

  • Rocinha and the Favela Bairro
  • Water aid (and fair trade if you wish)
  • Antarctica

I won’t link to all the resources on this blog for these 3 case studies. I am sure you can use the category cloud and find them. But here is a link to the skeleton revision cards I have produced that show the sections within each case study you need to know

Half term Geography Revision

How to Structure your Revision

Hello

Well done for getting through the Physical paper on Tuesday. Now there is about 12 days till your last Geography GCSE paper. Its the human paper.

The 3 topics we are doing are:

  • Changing Urban Environments
  • Development Gap and
  • Tourism

They will be questions 2, 4 and 6 in the exam!!

HOW TO REVISE:

a) Go through a PLC (personal learning checklist) for each topic. to see what you know, partly know and don’t know.

changing Urban environments PLC

Dev Gap PLC

Tourism PLC

b) Revise the stuff you don’t know so well (don’t do the stuff you already know)

c) test your knowledge using past exam questions. These two links take you to all the foundation and all the higher papers over the last 5 years , as well as the mark schemes (so you can check your answers) and the inserts.

(I have already written an article about “Effective Revision” which happens to use tourism as an example so you could watch the video in that. Your PLCs have been updated since then though,  so you would be better off using the 3 above)

Finally of course there are a few years worth of resources, revision help, videos et al on the blog so use those too. If you get really stuck ask a question to @stedsgeography on twitter

GOOD LUCK!
