Published in 1995, this book seeks to show how geography teachers can meet the requirements of the National Curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4 without abandoning principles of good practice. It considers geographical education in the contexts of geography itself, society and education. Deriving principles of good practice from these contexts, the author gives guidance on how to produce case studies (or curriculum units) that both reflect these principles and respond to the requirements of the National Curriculum following the Dearing Revised Order.
