It will also help them to acquire a systematic understanding of geography's role, purpose and potential in secondary education. The text also explores how teachers may use geography as a vehicle for preparing pupils for uncertain environmental, cultural, social and economic futures. Chapters on teaching strategies, learning styles and assessment place the learner at centre stage, and the book aims to encourage effective teaching through direct advice and activities which beginning teachers can undertake either individually or in groups.
