Welcome to the blog...

This blog emerges from a major project that I have spent time on this summer: a new Scheme of Work and resource package for teaching geography through an exploration of LANDSCAPES and what they mean for us, and how we interact with them.
I will post further ideas on SOURCES of information, WEBLINKS which you'll find useful, and my own TRAVELS and IMAGES.

One particular focus will be on the use of writing by some of my favourite authors, who share their experiences of landscapes. Teaching should be about continuous development and extending our own knowledge, and pedagogy.

To finish, a quote from Robert MacFarlane's "Wild Places" book.

"I think imagination needs a precise geography"

I will try to provide both in my blog postings...
