Help for teachers.

I was a teenager when pictures of people protesting against genetically modified organisms (GMOs), many dressed in biohazard suits, hit television screens during the 1990s. Now, I'm a geography teacher, and I'm about to tackle the controversial issue of GMOs with my Geography and Managing Environmental Resources classes. Mark Rowe's article (GM update, October 2012) was exactly what I needed to give me a much better, and up-to-date, insight into the nuances of the debate, and it will be invaluable in helping me to raise pupils' awareness of the different viewpoints. Thanks again Geographical for enhancing my teaching--you are high-quality CPD (Continuing Professional Development)!
