Doorstep Geography Is all about getting the kids outside and doing geography on their doorstep... My teacher likes it when we do Doorstep Geography because: - I am DOING geography and learning lots of new skills - I am meeting the National Curriculum/GCSE/A Level criteria - I am able to complete small enquiries within one lesson
My Headteacher likes it when I do Doorstep Geography because s/he doesnt have to worry about the cost of supply and cover. My other subject teachers like Doorstep Geography because it means I dont miss their lessons – I can do my fieldwork in my geography lesson time.
