Summary

Venue

  • L.E.A.D. Teaching School Hub, Lincoln, LN6 3QR

Intended impact of the programme

  • To better understand substantive and disciplinary knowledge within the context of the national curriculum and the 'real world'
  • To enable improved planning and implementation of a well-sequenced and coherent curriculum that will have maximum impact on pupils' geographical learning
  • To recognise and mitigate some common misconceptions around the subject
  • To explore and develop a range of practical ideas for teaching high-quality geography, including field work opportunities

 

Overview of the programme content

Session 1The first part of the day will concentrate on exploring the golden threads of geographical learning and how these inform curriculum content and learning intentions.

Session 2The second part of the day will consider how to implement relevant and authentic delivery of the subject's content and how to continuously monitor the impact of the curriculum on pupils.

Session 3The final session of the day will focus on geography fieldwork. Geography is an active and dynamic subject and fieldwork plays a pivotal role in making the content memorable, engaging and enjoyable by connecting it to the world outside the classroom window. We will consider what great fieldwork looks like and how it can be woven through the curriculum.
