Summary The presence of geography in the National Curriculum in England and Wales means that even teachers of children in the first years of school need to consider and monitor the distinctively geographical element in their teaching. Joy Palmer here helps them to do so enjoyably, combining concise summaries of the latest research with transcripts of classroom conversation, case studies and suggestions for the development and implementation of sound geographical work in practice. A final section provides a brief guide to resources available to the teacher
