Teaching Geography 11-18: A Conceptual Approach

David Lambert , John Morgan, "Teaching Geography 11-18: 
A Conceptual Approach" 
Open University Press | 2010 | ISBN: 0335234488 | 
192 pages | PDF | 2,5 MB

"This is a must read for all 11-18 geography educators. It argues for a new geography curriculum founded on a set of major concepts that are profoundly relevant to 21st century life. For years, books on 11-18 geography education have focussed on classroom techniques, new pedagogic technologies and alternative modes of student assessment. Not this one. 'Teaching Geography 11-18' digs deep. It asks not only what geography is for, but bases its answer on a set of key concepts able to sustain an exciting and relevant curriculum. It also grounds its many arguments in the latest geographical research, thus re-establishing the broken connection between geography teaching in schools and that in higher education".

An Explorer's Guide to the Universe

For thousands of years, astronomers have worked to unlock the mysteries of the heavens. As they observed the stars and planets that parade majestically across the sky, one great source of wonder was a huge faint trail of light that was called the Milky Way Galaxy because it looked like milk, spilled across the darkness of night. When scientists started using telescopes in the 1600s, they began to understand more about the Milky Way. But it wasn’t until the 20th century that new technology allowed scientists to take the full measure of this galaxy and others scattered across the universe. What they have uncovered is richly detailed in the pages of this book.
