GCSE Geography for WJEC Specification B Student's Book by Andy Owen, Colin Lancaster, Andy Leeder

GCSE Geography for WJEC Specification B is an exciting and motivating course designed to help students develop the abilities required to achieve exam success for the latest WJEC Specification B. WJEC Specification B is a direct development of the popular Avery Hill course and retains its issue-based, investigative approach to geography based around three themes: 1. Challenges of living in a built environment; 2. People and the natural world interactions; 3. People, work and development. Each theme includes: - activities using real-place data, maps, photographs and ICT resources to develop students' geographical investigative and analytical skills - examination tips to help students avoid common pitfalls, written by a WJEC examiner - integrated case studies of relevant LEDC and MEDC locations such as Ghana, Mali, Iceland and the UK - a problem-solving exercise at the end of each theme to help students to develop the skills required for the cross-unit Paper 2 study - 'Going Further' features to extend students' learning and to to help them to research geography in greater depth
