Theory into Practice: Place, 'Race' and Teaching Geography
Series Editor: Mary Biddulph and Graham Butt
Key Stage: Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4
Each book in this series takes aspects of current research into geographical education and delivers them to the classroom practitioner. The Theory into Practice series is dedicated to improving and reinvigorating the debate about teaching and learning in geography.
Key elements of the series are: direct communication with the classroom practitioner about current aspects of research in geographical education, and how these relate to the classroom.
An important addition to the series, this book deals with racism in teaching and learning geography.
The authors analyse the progress made in recent years in 'prejudice reduction' but challenge the often limited and partial stances still found in secondary texts. They describe how teachers can use critical approaches to help students adopt new ways of thinking about difference and offer strategies for doing so.
Chapter 1: Unsettled geographies
