Literacy in Geography

Instant Lessons - Literacy in Geography was created to support geography teachers working to improve their students' understanding of the metalanguage of this subject area. Poor literacy skills often prevent students from fully engaging with content. This resource enables students to learn and understand key geographical terms as well as revise core social, physical, cultural and built environment concepts.

The work sheets are ideal for consolidating skills in using an atlas, employing a range of research tools and working with data and statistics. They are designed to stand-alone as whole lessons, or can be effectively incorporated into existing units. Types of tasks include:

  • using word fragments, cloze tasks, selecting correct terms
  • completing maps and diagrams
  • classifying and describing
  • labelling
  • sketching
  • mind mapping
  • writing reports
  • word origins and puzzles
