"GCSE Geography for Avery Hill" is an exciting and motivating new course that develops the skills required to achieve exam success for the OCR/WJEC GCSE 'B' specification. It is written by experienced Avery Hill teachers and a senior examiner. The course explores the relationships between places, processes and people to facilitate a thorough understanding of contemporary issues, such as sustainability, interdependence and globalisation. Each unit contains features written especially to reflect the structure of assessment and requirements of the exam: Graded, skill-building activities using real-place data, maps, photographs, and ICT resources to provide thorough practice in gathering, refining, analysing and evaluating information for investigative purposes; Integrated use of case studies for selected MEDC and LEDC locations such as Iceland, Mali, Costa Rica and the UK and other areas to highlight concepts or issues; Locations are revisited to help build knowledge of specific parts of the world; Examination technique boxes to focus on how to answer standard exam questions, such as describing a distribution, comparing a pair of graphs and using map skills; a chapter focusing on problem-solving exercises; and ICT opportunities for personalised learning and assessment using the CD-ROM.
