    When Geography specialists decide they want to teach, it can be a daunting prospect to enter a real classroom, no matter how much subject knowledge they already possess. Geography: Teaching School Subjects 11-19 puts the subject into perspective and shows new teachers and student teachers how to make Geography accessible and interesting for their pupils. Divided into three sections the book examines the theory and practice of teaching geography:

    • section one explores how teachers can frame their own knowledge for classroom practice
    • section two focuses on Geography in the classroom and curriculum development as well as aspects of pedagogy and lesson design, evaluation and assessment
    • section three focuses on the teachers themselves and how they can view and work on professional development within their own subject area.
