Is Geogrpahy worthwhile?- A ressearch thesis
« on: October 07, 2016, 06:19:55 PM »
Hi There- I am HoD undertaking a doctorate research degree investigating the worthiness of geography. I need some geography teachers views ideally to interview but can send questions to be filled in. Really appreciate any involvement. I am in the Lichfield area.

That's great thank you. I have 5 questions:  thanks for agreeing to give your views.

1) if asked what geography was how would you define it as a subject?
2) why do you think geography gets far less curriculum time compared to other subjects?
3) why do you think there is a lack of geography teachers?
4) how can more geography teachers be recruited?
5) why is fieldwork so important?
Any other comment on the nature of geography as a subject

With my sincere thanks.
