    Has anyone begun to plan or think about how they are going to go around teaching the new AQA AS/ A-Level Geography Specification for September 2016? I have begun to plan, but without any other online resources to look at and develop from and the fact that teaching guides are not yet available has not helped my progress with planning and preparation of the units which are new and i have never taught such as Global Systems and Global Governance, Changing Places.

    If anyone has begun to plan or think about ideas for lessons perhaps we could help each other with planning of units?

    Hello, I too am finding the planning of the new modules very time consuming. I have started with Changing Places - what about you? Happy to share if you are still happy to?

    Hi all,
    I have made the first few lessons for teaching Changing Places. Send over your emails and we can get a thread going for sharing resources.

    I have made a SOW for changing places but not satisfied with how I've incorporated the 2 place studies into this. Anyone found a good ways of teaching the place studies? Happy to share resources.

    Hi all, I am teaching Changing Places, finding it tough going to be honest, but happy to share what I have. I'm working with another teacher in the city who is ace and has planned some helpful lessons. I'm particularly finding assessment a struggle, so few example questions available. Does anyone have any they have created? Thanks all.

    Hi all, like many of you I am also new to this (in fact new to teaching A level completely!). I have started with changing places and would appreciate any ideas or resources people have planned. As mentioned by others, I am also more than happy to share resources too.

    Totally brand new to this and have to start teaching on Monday, any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am not sure what the previous teacher has done, I know I have a fresh canvas with the AS students this year, but I am feeling a little concerned over the fact I really don't know what A level class has done.

    Also I am a little confused over what topics to pick to teach, so any advice would be amazing.
