Pearson Education Ltd 2013 Edexcel GCSE Geography A Geographical Foundations 6
Introduction: Edexcel GCSE Geography A Welcome to this new edition of the Edexcel GCSE Geography A Teacher Guide, which has been updated for the revised 2012 specification 2GA01, for first certification 2014. The new Edexcel GCSE in Geography A has four units. This allows for a flexible teaching approach, where students can study a unit and then move on to the next part of the course. Core topics cover key elements of both the physical and human world plus skills that are considered to be essential. The optional topics allow students to study areas of geography in more depth, focusing on contemporary issues from both physical and human environments. The fieldwork element of this course is found in the controlled assessment unit. This provides a more structured approach to internal assessment. The fieldwork tasks must be chosen from the list of tasks provided by Edexcel, but centres can put them in the context of their local area. Unit 1 is divided into two sections, both of which are compulsory material. The first covers cartographic skills, graphical skills, and geographical enquiry, and ICT and GIS skills whilst the second part examines student understanding of issues that have arisen from climate change and sustainable development. Unit 2 and 3 both contain two sections. Students complete all three topics in the first section: Coastal Landscapes, River Landscapes and Tectonic Landscapes in Unit 2 and Economic Change, Settlement Change and Population Change in Unit 3. Students then have a choice of two topics in the second section of each Unit: either A Wasteful World or A Watery World in Unit 2 and either A Moving World or A Tourists World in Unit 3.
