I used/have used the following resources to 'sell' Geography at the end of Year 9. This used to be a big deal in Sheffield in a large comprehensive school but it is less the case now in my current school as I currently take about 50% of the cohort and History take the same. We have however pushed hard for it to be possible to take both Geography and History at this school as this leads to more choice in the build up the IB/AS in Year 12 and 13.
