I have long been a keen advocate of the GA's Secondary Phase Committee's work. They have produced an excellent series of Top Ten Ideas (including promoting GCSE geography,  fieldwork, exam revision, liaison with primary schools, etc etc).

Their latest is great ideas for promoting Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) in Geography - please see  http://www.geography.org.uk/resources/toptenideas/

Thanks for highlighting this Kate.

If any SLN folk have suggestions for areas they'd like us to do a Top Ten Tips for, feel free to email/message me or one of the other SPC members.  Emma Johns (Edge) and Simon Renshaw are currently co-chairs of the SPC, and several other committee members are also SLNers.

I must say not many things make me say I will use that these days.

This resource certainly does.

Great work,
