Put the Excitement Back in your Geography

Course Details

Course overview Geography is an exciting subject that is about real people and places It should be enquirybased and definitely NOT a diet of inappropriate and non-challenging worksheets, or comprehension exercises based upon reading the big book.

The subject is about NOW and should throw open the window on the world for every child regardless of age, and always through the progressive use of geographical skills, activities and an appropriate ‘pitch’. The overuse of published schemes, insufficient visual material and its place as an extension to literacy-based work have driven out the immediacy and the synthesis of geographical knowledge that only comes from the subject being for everyone and always.

The day will explore many practical ways in which the excitement and immediacy can be promoted and develop a deep understanding and enthusiasm with young children. After all geography is everywhere and without it we are nowhere!!!..
