This comprehensive book provides an exploration of the main themes in geography education, as well as pedagogical insights into the subject * The Times Education Supplement *
The list of the book's contributors is impressive and the structure is immediately appealing, being logical and apparently sequential ... Is another book [about geographical education] really needed? I think this book provides such a good synthesis of previous writing, and balances theory and practice so well, that it deserves its place in the research literature ... I would certainly recommend it for teachers embracing, and new supervisors of, Masters' researcher. I learned much from it, despite many years' experience in the field! -- Dr. Margaret Mackintosh * RIGEO - Review of International Geographical Education Online *
This is a very welcome new book as it directly supports research rooted firmly in the discipline of geography. The text takes research principles and applies them very successfully in a commendably engaging and very readable fashion, always returning the reader to the subject context. It offers genuine and thought-provoking support to those embarking on research into geography education. The contributors, who are all highly respected geography educators, offer a platform from which both experienced and beginning researchers can successfully scope, design and execute their geographical research. * Justin N. Woolliscroft, Programme Director for Secondary PGCE and Geography PGCE Leader, University of Hull, UK *
Education is currently going through a number of rapid and complex changes resulting in a course into uncharted territory. One strand of this change is a renewed interest in the role of teachers as active agents in research. Whilst there is much energy and enthusiasm from the profession to be actively involved in research, there is far less support aiding teachers to do so. MasterClass in Geography Education is a crucial step forward in making the case for practice and research being facets of the same process rather than isolated poles. The book has an importance beyond geography in opening up wider debates concerning the relationship between practice and research, which are relevant to all those in education; as is often the case geographers have opened up a new and important front in education. * Phil Wood, Lecturer in Education, University of Leicester, UK *
