Abstract

Teachers and lecturers helping youngsters and mature students to prepare for the transition from secondary to tertiary (HE) geography will be familiar with the challenges of encouraging pupils into students undergound this transition. What we ought to be concentrating on is critical thinking and debate, through the medium of geography as a discipline. After all, most of our students will not be employed as "geographers" after they graduate, though some will become geography teachers who need a critical edge to be able to teach and influence.
I am proposing to have another look at a “A Different View” (ADV), the Geographical Associations' new manifesto - which I very much like, but expand on here.
