GCSE Edexcel B Case Studies with Exam Prep: Topic 3: Challenges of an Urbanising World

GCSE Edexcel B Case Studies with Exam Prep: Topic 3

Case Study resource packs – written specifically for the new Edexcel B GCSE Geography specification (1GB0).

Designed with an examination focus in mind. For each topic, ALL of the Case Studies required by the spec are covered, providing a detailed synopsis of the event, location or theme in question.

In addition, single-page summaries, revision material, and practice exam questions help guide students in the lead up to their exams.

We’ve carefully selected a range of case studies which not only span the globe but also focus on countries with contrasting levels of development. As well as understanding the physical factors at play within each case study, these resources allow you to teach all of the human concepts by comparing locations at either end of the development spectrum.

Each case study is structured with two main parts; The Case Study, and The Exam Prep:

The Case Study sections include…

  • Thought-provoking images and starter questions to get students thinking
  • Fact files of all the key information relating to the event
  • ICT interactive links and reliable sources to extend research

The Exam Prep sections include…

  • Single-page summaries for an at-a-glance overview of the topic
  • Rapid-fire revision questions to drum home the facts and figures
  • Edexcel exam-style questions (with suggested answers) to provide a structured approach to testing knowledge and recall in the lead up to the exams

Teach your students to gain a deep understanding of the physical world around them through study of specific events, and learn about the interactions between people and place, and the differing effects that gloabl events will have on developing and developed populations.
