GTIP Think Pieces

The 'Think Pieces' are intended to inform and to encourage reflection on a range of themes and issues, and provide practical support for tutors planning PGCE sessions.

Each one includes a short introduction and a series of key questions that you should consider in relation to the topic area. They also contain suggestions for what should be included in a geography PGCE course together with some activities for sessions, a reading list and further links.

Note - The Think Pieces were written in 2008-2009 so information and links may be out-of-date.

The Think Piece have been divided into 'Primary' and 'Secondary and Post 16' in the list below.

Although each Think Piece was written with a focus on the needs of either primary or secondary teacher educators, most Think Pieces are likely to be of wider interest.
