The geography curriculum: development and planning

Introduction to Geography Education Research into the geography curriculum

The geography curriculum can be thought of in different ways as it is reconstructed from policy documents. It can refer to the curriculum planned and intended by teachers; to the taught curriculum as teachers reconstruct these plans in their classroom practice; to the curriculum the students experience; the assessed curriculum and the hidden curriculum (unintended messages of how the geography curriculum is implemented).
