Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss A. Begley

Level 1 Geography in Action

Why should students take this course?

Geography is a unique subject that develops students' ability to investigate and analyse their world. Students will develop a range of theoretical frameworks and practical skills that allow them to analyse primary data and secondary research. 

The students who take this course should be curious about the world around them. Students will learn about local issues, perspectives, as well as global topics, geographic skills such as mapping, and important geographic concepts, will be learned, and students will complete an individual research assessment. Assessments in this course will include internal assessments as well as an external examination. This course will have both a natural and cultural lens throughout the topics which cover both local contexts (South Kaipara deer cull) and global contexts (Tourism in Bhutan).

Achievement Objectives


1.  Understand that natural and cultural environments have particular characteristics and how environments are shaped by processes that create spatial patterns. 


2.  Understand how people interact with natural and cultural environments and that this interaction has consequences.
