Introduction to GeoCapabilities
The purpose of the GeoCapabilities website is to help teachers develop as leaders. Teaching geography is our main focus. Geography teachers and teacher educators are the main audience.
The materials promote a capabilities approach to thinking about who we teach, and why we teach geography in schools. The activities help teachers explore their role as ‘curriculum leaders’ by the identification of geography as ‘powerful disciplinary knowledge’.
The resources are flexible and have been tested by school teachers. Teachers and teacher educators around the world can adopt or adapt them for use within their own training programmes.
