Introduction

This section explores how teachers can support students whose attitudes, abilities, cultural backgrounds and preferred learning styles vary greatly. The discipline of geography is regarded as a unique form of knowledge rather than a diverse grouping of related topics. Students are encourage to plan their own geographical inquiries and create new understandings of place, space and environment. In this unpredictable discipline, teacher's role can become more one of setting an environment that is conducive to risk-taking, with goal setting that supports both a sense of playfulness and the seriousness of directed inquiry.
