Geography in the news from Royal Geographical Society

Geography in the News: This site from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) provides free learning resources, for teachers and students, focusing on the geography in and behind the news. Updated regularly, this dynamic and expanding website covers contemporary issues relevant to GCSE and A level geography curricula that feature in the news. Since launching in April major topics have included London's controversial congestion charge, the perennial problem of flooding in the UK and the facts and fables surrounding international migration. A wealth of downloadable resources is available including, video clips, maps, student activity sheets and teachers' notes. Users are able to interact with the site in a number of ways. A forum allows teachers to review the materials, students are able to report news stories with a geographical perspective from their local areas, a bulletin board enables users to give their views on 'hot' geographical topics and there is an interview area for interaction with experts.
