Geog.1 Student Book by RoseMarie Gallagher, Richard Parish

geog.123 is a three-book course for the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3. This 4th edition has been specially written to match the new Programme of Study (for teaching from 2014). geog.123 combines a rigorous approach to content with a light touch, making it the most effective and engaging Key Stage 3 course available. Easy-to-use double-page spreads feature clearly-written objectives, student-friendly language, illustrated step-by-step explanations, up-to-date case studies and place-based examples, and high-quality photos, maps, and diagrams. Each Student Book has a glossary and full index. geog.1 includes coverage of the geological timescale, mapskills, the UK, glaciation, rivers, and Africa. Each Student Book is supported by online lesson plans and presentations, online resources including animations, and worksheets, and online assessment materials; an online Student Book; a Teacher's Handbook; a Workbook; and a Workbook Answer Book.


We particularly liked the topics that feature in this book as they tie in directly with those we've chosen for our Year 7 and Year 8 SOW based on the new Programmes of Study, especially geological timescales, glaciers, Africa, and the Horn of Africa. Sallyanne Summers, Lode Heath School The geog.1 textbook looks very good. Diverse range of topics which we hope will be interesting for Year 7 pupils. The main difficulty has been in deciding what to leave out of our scheme of work as we don't have time to cover it all. Loads of activities to choose from so individual teachers can tailor their lessons to the characteristics of each class. Jim Gardner, Dame Allan's Boys

-six years of teaching. Mr Thomson, Geography Teacher, Gosport, on previous edition This is a really good series of books for KS3. The book is appealing to kids and nicely graded. There are plenty of bright images and the content is bang up to date so the case studies are relevant. The layout is clear and appealing and the exercises are practical and, for the most part, interesting. It's probably my favourite KS3 geography resource. 5 Star Amazon Review Colourful, engaging and current...lots of photos and maps - perfect for interpretation.
