This engaging resource is designed to help GCSE students to learn 10 key facts about the coastal management case study of Walton-on-the-Naze and to make connections between them.

It uses the principles of dual coding and retrieval practice to make the facts memorable and then test students' recall.

The resource recaps how coastal erosion and slumping have shaped the coastline of Walton-on-the-Naze and why these processes also pose a threat to its survival. It reminds students about the landforms created by coastal erosion and lists some of the coastal defences that can protect the area and preserve its importance for tourism, nature and science.

The PowerPoint includes colour photos and key words that can be used as a starter. The Word document includes practice exam questions and a mark scheme based on the Eduqas B GCSE geography specification, but the resource may also be suitable for other exam boards.

An extract from the 10 facts:

Erosion and slumping have caused the cliff to retreat, leaving a wave-cut platform.

Coastal management includes a sea wall, groynes (wooden, rock and concrete) and rock armour.

The Naze Tower is protected by the £1.2 million Crag Walk – a 100 m raised walkway that reduces slumping.
