This reader, together with two other geography texts and two generic texts, provide in-depth discussion to the subject matter covered in the on-line modules which are the 'teaching blocks' of the Open University flexible PGCE course. The reader forms a useful collection of up-to-date articles, written by the most prominent teachers and teacher educators in the UK today and will be valuable to trainee teachers on any Geography PGCE course.
Some articles focus on long-standing issues; fieldwork activities and assessment methods, while others relate to new initiatives; citizenship and sustainability. The authors' views and opinions deliberately challenge readers and ask them to critically reflect on their work with pupils.
