Developing a Learning Progression for Place: A Provocation and a Response
Lambert, David
Journal of Geography, v117 n3 p122-124 2018
The purpose of this short article is to offer a critical perspective on Larsen and Harrington's ambitious and stimulating review article. It does so by drawing a distinction between teaching and learning and discussing how progression metaphors for describing the latter can distort the moral purpose of the former. My response to the provocation offered by the review article is to resist the temptation to urge yet more research effort on developing a learning progression for place and instead focus on what is required to teach about place effectively. This would need to be driven by clear teaching goals rather than some technical learning progression. [For "Developing a Learning Progression for Place" by Thomas B. Larsen and John A. Harrington Jr., see EJ1175719.]
