Raising the profile of Geography- Part.4

For Part.3

31. Establish a geography club, plan some interesting activities, and make them active. Use this as an opportunity to develop relationships and challenge their thinking and perceptions of geography.

32. What’s the point? Highlight why it is important to study particular concepts or issues in Geography. Sometimes it is necessary to focus on the selfish, what’s in it for me?

33. Take the opportunity to give a geographical assembly on a topic close to your heart. Year leaders are often happy to have a break from this task.

34. Look at the Key Stage 3 curriculum, how can it be made more relevant and interesting to students? Ask their viewpoints on topics.

35. Develop an interesting PowerPoint about geography and its study. Have it playing at open days and parent’s evening.

36. Don’t do down other subjects, maintain your professionalism. Highlight and stress the cross-curricular nature of Geography.

37. Get a group of GCSE students to develop an alternative leaflet for GCSE geography.

38. Make use of the R.G.S ambassadors scheme.

39. Set up a YouTube channel/Flickr account for your department, use them to share student work to a wider audience.

40. Work towards the Geography Quality Mark.

I think I’ve exhausted my creative juices, any other suggestions are gladly welcome…

    Thanks again. Excellent stuff! I think if you do all of those surely you should get the quality mark anyway! 🙂

    Mmm, I sure you would, not up to date with the criteria for the quality at the moment.
