GeoVisions and the new GCSE (2003)
GeoVisions and the new GCSE
The core specification for the new hybrid Geography GCSE is now finalised. It will be piloted in 20 centres from September 2003. The GA has been commissioned by QCA to produce some supporting guidance for these centres, and the GeoVisions group has been asked to take this on.

The U.S. National Geography Standards
The U.S. National Geography Standards
The U.S. National Geography Standards were published in Washington, D.C., on October 20, 1994. They appeared at a time of great optimism and great controversy over the concept of national standards for K-12 education.
As the writing coordinator for the standards project, I am pleased to say that the National Geography Standards are alive and well today. We were and still are optimistic. The vast majority of states have incorporated parts or all of the 18 geography standards into their state standards. The main document, Geography for Life, has sold nearly 100,000 copies, and the executive summary has sold nearly 30,000 copies. Textbooks have incorporated the standards into lesson plans and exercises.
