Terminology is it LEDC, LIC or just developing country?

Is it LEDC, LIC/HIC/MIC or just developing and developed.

The green Oxford textbook uses HIC/LIC/MIC but there seems to be no mention in exam questions of this terminology.

Am I going to confuse students if I start using it and then they are simply referred to as in the Oxford textbook developed and developing.

Revision videos on youtube

Hi! I've been making revision videos for my year 10 and 11 students and posting them on youtube. They're not amazing, mainly just me talking through some of the key points in each unit, but quite a few of my students havesaid they have found them useful. There are just 5 up at the moment, but more to follow over the next couple of weeks. If you think they will be useful search for 'miss room geography' on youtube and take a look!

Textbook Support Materials

Got my copy last week of the Teachers' Support Materials, which I contributed something towards.


I have to declare an interest due to the (very) small royalty that I will receive for each copy sold.
