This book explains how the concepts of geography can teach young people to think geographically, deeply and ethically.
Thinking Geographically demonstrates how the concepts of place, space, environment and interconnection teach students new ways of perceiving and understanding the world, the concepts of scale and time teach them ways of analysing the world, while the concepts of sustainability and wellbeing show them how to evaluate and reflect on what they observe, and all eight concepts develop their higher order and critical thinking. To further support teachers, this book includes a chapter on how to teach for conceptual understanding, as well as two chapters that illustrate the application of geographical thinking to an understanding of the effects of land cover change and the problem of regional inequality.
Rich with practical examples, this book is an essential resource for geography teachers, whether already teaching or studying to become one, and for those who teach therm.
