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.

The latest addition to the GA’s professional development series offers a dynamic approach to the study of place, encouraging the reader to consider place as a process and offering a theoretical framework and an examination of how pupils acquire their place-based knowledge. Includes exemplar material for classroom use, linked to GA website resources.
