Additional Information: The quality of geography education in England and Wales has been a concern raised by Ofsted. The content of geography lessons has become a pressing issue in geography education in schools, but much of the debate has focussed on what geography we should be teaching young people, and on how the curriculum is constructed. Lesson planning is often perceived however, as a practical task rather than an intellectual one. This article critically analyses the geographical knowledges presented in three geography lessons observed as part of the external examination of a PGCE course. The article questions what students have learnt about geography from these lessons and challenges initial teacher education to address issues of ill-conceived school geography. The article develops not just our understanding of school geography but also the way that it is presented in schools.
