This work examines a wide range of issues which should be of interest to those teaching geography from the early years through to higher education. The issues discussed include: the role of research and the use of ICT in teacher training; the significance of developing critical thinking skills; broader educational issues such as citizenship and development; the importance of environmental education; the position and role of assessment; and the present state and status of geographical education and issues that are likely to be of concern in the future.
'It should not...be viewed exclusively as a PGCE text, but rather essential reading of all professional educators who decide to think critically/evaluate and reflect upon classroom practice in order to improve the quality of learning for their pupils.' - David J. Turton, British Journal of Educational Studies 'It is a useful and stimulating addition to the literature on geography teaching. The issues covered are relevant to many teachers and...there is something of interest in every chapter. Its wide-ranging scope will enable readers to pick and choose as they wish.' - Paul Weeden, British Educational Research Journal
