The Society’s A Level subject content overviews have received a Geographical Association (GA) Publishers’ Award. Developed to support teachers with the introduction of the 2016 A Level courses, the resources provide an introduction to some of the key content, concepts and geographical theories within the new A Levels.
The Society was presented with a GA Publishers’ Award at the GA Annual Conference in Manchester last week. The awards recognise resources that make a significant contribution to geography in schools. The Society received a ‘highly commended’ award for six A Level subject content overviews.
The overviews have been written by leading academic geographers: Professor Martin Evans, Professor Klaus Dodds, Professor Peter Jackson, Dr Peter Knight, Professor Richard Phillips and Dr Richard Waller – a number of whom were members of the A Level subject advisory panel for geography. They were funded as part of the Rediscovering London’s Geography project through the London Schools Excellence Fund (LSEF).
The GA’s citation noted: “This free online resource will provide teachers with a valuable grounding in six of the content areas of the new A Level, and inform and enhance their knowledge in these areas. Written by specialists, the overviews are concise and up to date, and incorporate complex key terms and helpful diagrams and figures.”
Steve Brace, Head of Education and Outdoor Learning said: “It is the Society’s partnerships across Higher Education and schools which underpin the support we provide to geography teachers. By connecting the work of academic geographers with the classroom, these overviews are essential reading for teachers who are preparing for the new A Levels”.
The Society's first Rob Potter Award has been awarded to Dr Gemma Sou from the University of Manchester.
