Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School has become the widely recommended textbook for student and new teachers of geography. It helps them acquire a deeper understanding of the role, purpose and potential of geography within the secondary curriculum, and provides the practical skills needed to design, teach and evaluate stimulating and creative lessons.

This fully revised and updated second edition takes account of new legislation and important developments in geography education, including literacy, numeracy, citizenship, and GIS. Brand new chapters in this edition provide essential guidance on fieldwork, and using ICT in the context of geography teaching and learning. Chapters on teaching strategies, learning styles and assessment place the learner at the centre stage, and direct advice and activities encourage successful practice.

Designed for use as a core textbook Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School is essential reading for all student teachers of geography who aspire to become effective, reflective teachers.
