If only Tim Prescott had not cracked the pages of the architectural design magazine that afternoon in March of 2007, his retirement might have proceeded normally. The photo of the Pueblo III-era jar stopped him dead. How is it that a single glimpse of an image in a magazine could change his life forever? A celebrated National Geographic writer, Prescott spots a distinctive vase he last saw in a magnificent Anasazi ruin in southern Utah almost forty years ago. In 1968, he and photographer Wesley Channing discovered Blood House in Skinned Knee Canyon, a forty-mile trek from Mexican Hat. But between the moment the pair discovered the ruin and their return some weeks later with US government officials, the site had been ransacked, creating a Washington kerfuffle that disgraced the National Geographic Society. At the moment Prescott saw the vase in the magazine photo spread on the luxury condo owned by a hedge fund millionaire, he knew exactly who betrayed him and who it was that embroiled the National Geographic Society and Prescott himself in that scandal. Prescott and Channing return to work for National Geographic and to confront what happened in an obscure canyon out West—a trip that may have fatal consequences. In The Geography Lesson, his first new novel in more than twenty years, bestselling author John Buckley returns with a tale that is part adventure story, part love letter by an elderly man to his recently deceased wife, and part deeply funny exploration of the National Geographic Society.

Mark Enser’s ‘Making Every Geography Lesson Count: Six principles to support great geography teaching’ maps out the key elements of effective geography teaching and shows teachers how to develop their students’ conceptual and contextual understanding of the subject over time. What sets geography apart from other subjects is the value placed on seeing the connections between the different parts of its broad curriculum, on building links between different topics, and on thinking like a geographer. Writing in the practical, engaging style of the award-winning ‘Making Every Lesson Count’, Mark Enser has set out to help his fellow practitioners maximise this value by combining the time-honoured wisdom of excellent geography teachers with the most useful evidence from cognitive science. ‘Making Every Geography Lesson Count’ is underpinned by six pedagogical principles – challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning – that will enable teachers to ensure that students leave their lessons with an improved knowledge of the world, a better understanding of how it works and the geographical skills to support their learning. Each chapter looks at one of the six principles and begins with twin scenarios which illustrate some of the real challenges faced in geography classrooms. Mark then delves into a discussion on the underpinning theory and offers a range of practical, gimmick-free strategies designed to help teachers overcome these obstacles. Furthermore, each chapter also ends with a case study from a fellow geography teacher who has successfully employed the principle in their own classroom. Written for new and experienced practitioners alike, this all-encompassing book offers an inspiring alternative to restrictive Ofsted-driven definitions of great teaching and empowers geography teachers to deliver great lessons and celebrate high-quality practice. Suitable for geography teachers of students aged 11–18 years.
