Testimonials

"Full of helpful teaching materials and teaching activities for the hard-pressed teacher. If teaching rivers "floats your boat" then both DVDs are worthy resources".

Review first appeared in Teaching Geography Spring 2014

Stephen Schwab, Head of Geography, Neston High School, Cheshire and member of the GA Secondary Phase Committee. Review in Teaching Geography.

Flooding in the UK is centred on Tewkesbury 2007, as featured in many texts. It covers causes, impacts and solutions with very good inputs from residents, businesses, the Environment Agency and Severn Trent Water. These talking heads will help student understanding of the many flooding issues. I found the organisation of the information better for the key stage 3-5 target audience.

The DVD has helpful teaching materials and student activities for the hard-pressed teacher. If teaching rivers "floats your boat" then both DVDs are worthy resources.
