California a region within North America is one of a series of publications, which provides the busy primary teacher with the planning and resources to deliver their own exciting and stimulating geography lessons while keeping strictly to the National Curriculum requirements. The laminated A3 leaflet opens to review an overview of planning in tabular form. The subject knowledge is provided so that non-experts can deliver lessons that are stimulating and challenging for the children. Copies of all the handouts, PowerPoints and further Teacher Guidance notes are included on the key (an USB memory stick). Teachers may use the overview in a number of ways, they might consider each section to be a short topic, or a series of lessons, or they might select just one or two of the subjects. The Observed Learning Outcomes are designed to classify the children’s progress and are loosely based on the SOLO taxonomy approach (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes). Above all the scheme is easy to use and affordable. The complete series will provide NC Geography coverage but teachers can make choices to suit the needs of their children.
