The geography department at the International School of Toulouse have recently launched a (bright orange) forum for teachers of the aforementioned subject. Looks good. :)

Richard means this rather hideous thing I think :)

Sheez, you'd think that with all that colouring in experience they'd choose something a little easier on the eyes!

Potentially a very worthy project however.

Ideally I'd prefer Geographers to use our Geography section here but we have been notably unsuccesful in attracting them thus far.

The colours may indeed be the issue :)

Perhaps I should stop taking a crack at geography teachers then...

You could send them a site map...

Never do that!

I don't think a site map would help much either.

I have the pleasure of teaching a number of pupils in the 6th form who also take (have taken) geography. A particularly revealing exchange with one of them recently went as follows.

Pupil: Where are you from Sir?

Me: I'm from the Isle of Man

Pupil: Is that near France?

Me: No it is between Northern Ireland and Cumbria?

Pupil: What's Cumbria?

Me: Have a look at this map (I point to both cumbria and IOM on a map). The Isle of Man is a British crown dependency with its own devolved government, language and currency.

Pupil: Are you one of them asylum seekers then?

Me: Yes but they won't let me back in

Pupil: Is the Isle of Man like the Isle of Sheep? (I think she meant Sheppey)

Me: What did you get in your Geography GCSE?

Pupil: A* Sir I'm really good at Geography.
