'What I've learned from this year's GCSE' Last year, following the final exam of the old geography specification, I wrote a piece for Tes looking at the lessons we could learn, ready for the first year of the new specification.

'What I've learned from this year's GCSE'

I suggested that there was a limit to how much we could prepare pupils for particular exam questions and that we needed to focus instead on ensuring they had a deep understanding of the subject and could draw on their knowledge about an array of different topics, case studies and examples. Having finished teaching the course, and following the first exam, I hold with this conclusion. The questions on the exam didn’t contain any huge surprises. Unlike previous exam papers, they didn’t ask detailed questions on small and easily overlooked parts of the specification; the format was very similar to those of the specimen papers and the longer questions were very clear in terms of what they were looking for.

Not doing it (not yet anyway) but watching the many, strangely compelling documentaries about it and reading the many, also compelling, books and articles about the rise of this phenomenon. It started when I was at the gym, pounding out intervals on the treadmill, trying to get back into shape and looking for something to distract me and keep me motivated. CrossFit is a fitness movement based around a mixture of high intensity gymnastic movements, weight lifting and cardio. The teaching and learning bit is coming, I promise. Running – training for the specific conditions I couldn’t help contrast this with my own exercise of choice – running. The problem is that this training doesn’t transfer. Here comes the teaching and learning bit Conclusion. Map Skills Questions for GCSE Geographers.
