Teaching Primary Geography for Australian Schools helps to develop your knowledge and understanding of Early Years and Primary geography and of their teaching. It discusses the nature of geography and geographical knowledge and understanding, and links this with everyday life, in particular, with children’s environmental and geographical experiences, a thread running throughout the book. Key aspects of Early Years and Primary geography are covered, including the core ideas in the subject, and understanding places and environmental sustainability. It considers inquiry approaches to teaching and learning geography, learning outside the classroom through fieldwork, the geographical skills children need, such as map work and visual skills, world knowledge and global issues, citizenship and cross-curricular approaches. Aspects of planning geography teaching and learning and assessment are discussed, as are ways in which you can investigate and reflect on your geography teaching and children’s learning in your classroom.
The purpose of Teaching Primary Geography in Australian Schools is to encourage and develop well-grounded geographical knowledge and understanding for all children through high-quality planning, teaching and learning in and of geography.
