Is this big enough? Using big geographical questions to develop subject pedagogy

Rachel Lofthouse

Using big geographical questions make for a more coherent geography curriculum. They root geography in the principle of enquiry and offer a method of examining geographical topics from key stage 3 through to degree level, at local, regional, national and global scales. They can be used to aid planning, as a teaching strategy or to develop a more enquiring dimension to learning geography.
