Pupil book enquiries are 'How' and 'Why' questions consisting of one overarching investigative question and a series of sub questions. Enquiries are supported by teacher resources that provide a clear steer in terms of approaches to learning and teaching and the generation of meaningful outcomes. These outcomes will be easily cross referenced to any national assessment requirements. This series is endorsed by the Geographical Association. Case studies in the book will include: * samples of the breadth studies at Key Stage 3 * key processes in both physical and human geography * integration of higher order thinking skills to exemplify that the world is a complex and interconnected place Enquiry topics: 1. 'Middle' - of what? 'East' - of where? Is the Middle East a region? 2. Issues in the ocean Is our use of ocean resources sustainable? 3. Going boldly Is India's space programme justified? 4. From Shangombo to South Tavy Head Why are Thandi and Moses working in Soweto market? 5. Using someone else's water How does water consumption create interdependence and conflict? 6.
