Reflective Teaching of Geography 11 18

THIS IS THE SERIES BLURB...LIST ALL BOOKS TOGETHER:Continuum Studies in Reflective Practice and Research is a new series of textbooks aimed at teaching students. As with Andrew Pollard's books, they use the idiom of reflective teaching. In other words, they avoids the two extreme views about learning to teach, namely that it is best done simply through acquiring practical "tricks of the trade" without any theory or that it is best done applying sytematized, objective theory. The distinctive feature of relective teaching is that it encourages practitioners to develop by continually inter-relating theory and research findings to their own practice, situation and style.These comprehensive textbooks provide an accessible guide to all those who are new to teaching in secondary schools. Covering all aspects of job, from planning through to teaching and assessment, the authors provide constructive, accessible and, above all, practical advice to help subject teachers become more effective in their work.

Geography and Japan s Strategic Choices

Geography, this author contends, is the indisputably unique feature of any country. Geography and Japan's Strategic Choices begins by explaining Japan's unique location and topography in comparison to other countries. Peter Woolley then examines the ways in which the country's political leaders in various eras understood and acted on those geographical limitations and advantages. Proceeding chronologically through several distinct political eras, the book compares the Tokugawa era, the opening to the West, the Meiji Restoration, the long era of colonialization, industrialization and liberalization, the militarist reaction and World War II, the occupation, the Cold War, and finally the rudderless fin de siecle. Finally Woolley demonstrates how Japan's strategic situation in the twenty-first century is informed by past and present geo-strategic calculations as well as by current domestic and international changes. For students and scholars of U.S.-Japan relations and of Japanese history and politics, this book offers any informed reader a fresh perspective on a critical international relationship.
