"Geography Matters" is a Key Stage 3 course created for pupils of all abilities.
It provides an exact match to the requirement of the revised National Curriculum, and to the units of the Key Stage 3 Scheme of Work.
The pupil textbooks for year nine are parallel in their content coverage but are set at different levels, Foundation and Higher, to provide material at the right level and pace for both less able and more able pupils.
Pupil books emphasize investigation skills, and integrated geographical skills such as map work and data analysis.
The activities are linked to literacy and numeracy and have integrated ICT skills.
Regular tasks provide feedback on progress and extention activities.
There is a teacher resource pack to cover each full year at Key Stage 3.
Each pack offers differentiated photocopiable worksheets and teacher's notes for the activity sheets.
Matrices show how the scheme covers the new National Curriculum and links with the Scheme of Work, and there are teaching plants for each chapter.
Guidance is included on differentiation, literacy and numeracy.
Other photocopiable resources include outline maps, diagrams and writing frames.
