This chapter will introduce you to geography as a discipline, illustrate its changing nature
within the curriculum and how its relationship with citizenship may be mutually beneficial
to learners. citizenship teachers often incorporate their subject across the humanities
either through a cross-curricular approach to learning, or by teaching discrete subjects like
geography. This chapter will help you in both of these endeavours.
