As well as your exercise books and the revision guides that some of you have bought, don't forget that there are lots of useful websites, etc. out there as well.

If you type "revision" into the search on Geogtastic, you will find various posts from previous years - a couple of the most useful are here:

The Ecotourism Game that we mentioned yesterday is here...

Thank you very much, and well done, to those of you who managed to get your coursework handed in on time. You can now stop worrying about it and can get on with revising for your mock exams, and preparing for the DME exam in January.

If you are one of the people who didn't, you need to get yourself sorted out as a matter of urgency.

I discovered this fab set of "creative games" via Dan Raven-Ellison a while back - but this example by Kenny73 is particularly appropriate for what the Yr11s who are not in an Art exam will be doing tomorrow:

Have a go at making your own flipbook showing how coastal landforms develop... What other uses can you think of?

The River Severn - From Source to Sea

A rather timely follow-on from our rivers revision on Friday...

Thanks to Alan P, and to David Noble who created the videos.

Coursework Deadline, Mocks and DME

Hopefully the coursework is going well... Remember that we agreed on Monday 17th November as the FINAL deadline.

Final deadline means a complete piece of work (spell-checked, printed, with title page, contents page, bibliography, etc.)! I will give you a list next week of reminders about how your work should be presented.

If you are sorted on the coursework front and short of something to do (!) then you might like to have a think about the DME title for January 2009 which is "City Centres - Vibrant Hub or Dead Heart?". More details and links to come in the next few weeks...

Remember also that it is not very long until mock exams - for Geography, you will have a "terminal exam" which will examine all the work that you have done since the start of Year 10, and a DME exam which will be a previous DME exam and which we will spend some lesson time preparing for.
