Description


Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School has become the widely recommended textbook for student and new teachers of geography. It helps you acquire a deeper understanding of the role, purpose and potential of geography within the secondary curriculum, and provides the practical skills needed to design, teach and evaluate stimulating and challenging lessons.

It is grounded in the notion of social justice and the idea that all students are entitled to a high-quality geography education. The very practical dimension provides you with support structures through which you can begin to develop your own philosophy of teaching and debate key questions about the nature and purpose of the subject in school.

Thoroughly updated to take account of the latest research, evidence and policy, this new edition reflects new developments in technology as well as current thinking on curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. Exploring the fundamentals of teaching and learning geography in school, chapters cover:

Why we teach geography - its purposes and intent

Understanding and planning the curriculum - what to teach

Effective pedagogy - how to teach

Inclusion

Assessment

Developing and using resources

Fieldwork and outdoor learning

Values and school geography's contribution to 'citizenship'

Professional development

Intended as a core textbook and written with both university and school-based initial teacher education in mind, Learning to Teach Geography is essential reading for all those who aspire to become able, effective and above all, thoughtful and reflective teachers.
