  • The curriculum is about the destination, the aims and goals, and is therefore a matter of serious moral deliberation. A skills-based curriculum leads us into believing we needn’t trouble with the knowledge question.  But, what shall we teach and how do we justify this? These are the important questions: surely the starting point for teachers in schools.
  • Teachers as curriculum makers
    Every teacher is a subject leader
  • Article in #pgcetips guide...Food analogy...
  • Food analogy explored a little
  • “Last year, nearly one in four of the world’s six billion people lived in extreme poverty. A quarter of all human beings on the planet had no electricity. Nearly a third did not have reliable access to safe drinking water, and even larger numbers subsisted on wood and charcoal instead of modern fuels. Just under 800 million adults were not able to read or write last year. And, close to nine million children died before their fifth birthday.”
  • “Can we have a fun lesson ?”What does that question ‘mean’ ?
  • #ukedchatThursdays – 8pmDifferent discussion each week...
  • “It's never the technology thatentertains an audience, it's what you do with it.”John Lasseter, Disney Pixar Head of Animation

  • On a day-to-day basis, young people participate in their own ‘lived’ or ‘everyday’ geographies.
    Geography in school can draw from these experiences, and help young people understand them, connecting them to the wider world of people.
