Let us know what you do in your school?
Do you celebrate Geography Awareness Week? What do you do in this week?
How do you “sell” our awesome subject to students and parents?
Do you make videos? print off pamphlets etc – how about you share your ideas with us all here.
Please contribute ideas yourself so we can all learn from each other. If you are struggling with how to add material please feel free to email material to the address email@example.com and we will put it up.
There are new examples of internals up for Level 1, some new websites to use with your classes, a re-organisation of resources and some fun ideas for promoting geography as we get into the season of encouraging students to do geography in 2014!
