Hopefully you have all been making good use of your Unit 1 revision guide. If any of you happen to have lost it or left it at school by mistake – I have uploaded an electronic .pdf copy to your Year 11 Schoology course – simply log in and click on the ‘Updates’ section.
If any of you can’t find your Year 11 Revision booklets – there is a .pdf version available on the Schoology course – just login and click on Updates and look for the updates regarding this.
I have also just uploaded to your Schoology course final revision presentations for Unit 1, 2 and 3 which should be helpful.
We have started doing some more GeoTweet Revision snippets to give you some bitesize revision chunks of revision. The existing ones can all be found here. This morning’s GeoTweet revision was in support of Unit 1 and looks at the effects and management of resource exploitation in Tropical Rainforests.
(Please remember that these are ONLY summaries and you must make sure you revise detail as well and refer to your revision guides to support you with this.)
Now is the time to make sure you are revising thoroughly for your Year 11 mock exams which are in January.
Remember in Geography, as we are still teaching the Unit 2 Physical Environments, your mock exams will consist of:
Unit 1 – Geographical Skills and Challenges (1 hour)
Unit 3 – Human Environments (1 hour 15 mins)
You will need to refer to your individual timetables for the exact dates and locations of your exams.
ONLINE REVISION MATERIALS
Please remember there are lots of resources available to support you here on the blog – look through the links above or go straight to the main revision links page.
These are now available. Unit 1 will be distributed to you all in class by your teacher (please ask them for a copy if you don’t have it by the end of term). You can purchase a copy of the Unit 2 and 3 guides from the Business Centre (as per the letter sent to parents).
When we get back in January there will be the following support available:
