Steps on our `learning journey’: developing understanding of teaching about Geography and the Global Dimension.

During the last project meeting of the summer of 2012 we sat down to tease out those aspects we felt had made the project successful.  We also wanted to identify the lasting legacy, i.e. what teacher’s would take away with them and that they would continue to put into practice in their own classrooms.  

In terms of offering a shape for any further projects that might be run we put together these points:

  1. It starts with us the teachers – exploring the values and attitudes that we hold and developing and extending our conceptual knowledge and understanding in relation to:

a) Geography,        and

b) What we mean by the Global Dimension.

2. The focus moves onto the children we teach – we provide opportunities and develop learning experiences in order to support our children as learners. We extend and challenge learners through enquiry learning and P4C.

3. We think through the issues and support our children to `Take Action’ and we square the circle by considering the place of charity
