Description - Geography by John Morgan
I want to be a good Geography teacher. How do I do it? When Geography specialists decide they want to teach, it can be a daunting prospect having to enter the 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. This book is the first of its kind that tries to guide the intellectually alive teacher into the nature of the subject in its entirety, and how to think about geography when preparing to teach.
