The Geography Teaching Today
website is now closed.

All the resources and other materials that were previously hosted on the Action Plan for Geography website "Geography Teaching Today" are moving to the respective sites of the Geographical Association [GA] and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) [RGS-IBG]. We hope you will continue to use these materials to support geography in your schools.
