  19. 19. GeoCapabilities http://geography.org.uk/projects/geo-capabilities/ http://www.geocapabilities.org/ Teachers should go beyond delivery of a curriculum of prescribed ‘given knowledge’ and of a curriculum that over-emphasises ‘learning to learn’, which blurs subject distinctions. Instead we advocate creating a ‘curriculum of engagement’ - what we call a Future 3 curriculum.
