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.

Cases and places critically examines the teaching of 'place' through case studies in secondary geography, challenging the way case studies are used and offering accessible classroom materials for place study based on the way place is conceptualised in academic geography.
