Additional Information: This book can claim, genuinely, to break new ground and is unique internationally in the world of geography education: take this quote from Prof Noel Castree, Head of the Geography Department at the University of Manchester, who was asked by OUP to read the manuscript: “I am most impressed. For years, books on 11-18 geography education have focused on classroom techniques, new pedagogic technologies and alternative modes of student assessment. Not this one. Teaching Geography 11-18 digs deep. It asks not only what geography is for, but bases its answer on a set of key concepts able to sustain an exciting and relevant curriculum. It also grounds its many arguments in the latest geographical research, thus re-establishing the broken connection between geography teaching in schools and that in higher education”. What this book, in effect, attempts to do is to theorise school geography. This is notoriously difficult to do and has, arguably, been avoided for many years, to the detriment of the subject in schools.
