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. Answers to the 'Your turn' questions are printed in the Teacher's Handbook. Each Student Book is supported by Kerboodle online resources including lesson plans and presentations, animations, worksheets, and assessment materials; an online Student Book; a Teacher's Handbook; a Workbook; and a Workbook Answer Book.


You know what quality you are getting... it's the best around. * Paul Corner, FBEC, Durham * Colourful and interesting, a little bit more related to students. * Head of Geography * Allows me to have textbook back up, especially for non-specialist teachers. * Head of Humanities * It motivates the pupils and allows me to differentiate easily within my planning for each lesson. I like the online aspect too. * Head of Geography * Improved topic coverage to support new KS3 curriculum.

Well laid out resources, good range of tasks and questions with a clear coverage of topics. * Head of Humanities * Visual and accessible. * Head of Geography * A clear, up to date, relevant to modern world study of geography. * Aubrey Bufton, Sidcot School, Somerset * Easy for pupils to access and understand. * Anthony Lloyd, St Bedes RC High School, Blackburn * Clear format, accessible, with a range of learning ideas in the text. * K Polley, Thomas Becket Catholic School, Northampton * The resources are well presented and have a variety of tasks. * Debi Henderson, Weydon School, Farnham * Clear visuals and information easy to use. * Sallyanne Summers, Solihull * Attractive, enjoyable and interesting - a modern view of geography.

Good range of resources if you purchase the extras. Up to date material and very useful online assessments. * Jim Gardner, Dame Allan's Schools, Newcastle-Upon- Tyne * Good use of illustrations and pictures, they fit in with the new curriculum for geography.

We have always liked the layout and content of geog.

They are very user-friendly and cover all aspects clearly. * Helen Banks, Scalby School, Scarborough * Updated topics and a really good range of questions and resources to base a scheme of work on.

Accessible with plenty of good visual material. * Sarah Lewis, Bishop of Llandaff High School, Cardiff * Clear and easy to use * David Savage, Woodley High School, Bury * Clear diagrams and maps to stimulate pupils, with an easy to follow layout. * Head of Geography * Colourful, great use of images, exercises are practical and useful.

Easy to read, easy to understand and well laid out. They engage pupils and are varied enough to maintain interest. They address key skills well. * David Majury, St Columbanus College, Bangor * Bright, colourful, recent and well detailed. * Emily Rowley, Hanley Castle High School, Worcester * Colourful, engaging and current...lots of photos and maps - perfect for interpretation. * Fran Summers, The South Wolds Academy and Sixth Form, Keyworth * 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 * One of the most exciting KS3 books I have come across in twenty-six years of teaching. * Mr Thomson, Geography Teacher, Gosport, on previous edition * 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

* 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 *
