Guerrilla Geography has been a concept developed by The Geography Collective. I posted last week about how it is always great to see members of the team give CPD to others, and it was great to see a seed of an idea being embedded within our practice.
Before I go too far, please remember that Guerrilla Geography is a small part of what we do. There are established Schemes of Work, assessment points and links to the wider curriculum.
We believe that this style of activity encourages:
- The use of spaces that are outside of the classroom;
- Encourages engagement through ‘naughty’ learning: pupils feel like they are undertaking a covert activity.
- The development of pupils’ understanding of space, micro-ecosystems, empathy, sense of place and team work
Guerrilla Geography and naughty learning. If you’d like to learn more, we will be speaking at the Geographical Association’s Annual Conference next month.
