This course will demonstrate how geography can encourage pupils to engage with literacy, providing you with ideas to develop a rich and relevant curriculum which will give pupils excellent educational experiences. It will explore geography through stories, consider the use of images to develop speaking and listening, and think about sharing and justifying opinions in geography.
