|Summary:||This popular Cassell series, intended chiefly for teachers and trainee teachers, places strong emphasis on practice but at the same time incorporates the latest research in the field. The books all demonstrate a strong belief in the ability of children to learn, and in the ability of teachers to increase children's learning potential. The series authors are distinguished practitioners in their fields who write with authority, but without jargon. This book is a readable and lively introduction to the teaching of geography for all primary teachers and fills a gap in the literature available on the subject. In England and Wales the National Curriculum has pointed to the need for greater understanding of geography by primary teachers at Key Stage 2 to level 5 and beyond. The book takes each of the attainment targets in turn, looks at the evidence for children's understanding and suggests appropriate classroom activities. There is a wealth of information gathered from British, American, Australian and German sources as well as the author's own research. Ideas are combined with reasons for putting them into practice. Although structured around the National Curriculum, the book has wide international relevance and even non-specialists will find it enjoyable and stimulating.
