Summary

Published in 1994, this book is the result of the collaborative work undertaken at the Liverpool-based Geography INSET Primary Project (GIPP) over three years. It presents a series of chapters for primary teachers seeking to implement the Statutory Orders for Geography in the National Curriculum. Steering a middle course between the sophistications of a theoretical/methodological text and the over-simplifications of a ‘tips-for-teachers’ approach, the authors highlight the positive opportunities offered by the National Curriculum. At the same time they are critical of many aspects of the Statutory Orders, without losing sight of their objective to help teachers to improve the quality of primary geography teaching.

The book is especially useful for INSET work for teachers who have already grappled with National Curriculum Geography and who will be adjusting to the post-Dearing rearrangements.
