Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'It should not...be viewed exclusively as a PGCE text, but rather essential reading of all professional educators who decide to think critically/evaluate and reflect upon classroom practice in order to improve the quality of learning for their pupils.' - David J. Turton, British Journal of Educational Studies

'It is a useful and stimulating addition to the literature on geography teaching. The issues covered are relevant to many teachers and...there is something of interest in every chapter. Its wide-ranging scope will enable readers to pick and choose as they wish.' - Paul Weeden, British Educational Research Journal
