GEOGRAPHY 11F - Full Year

GEO11F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Stoddart

Geography is the study of Earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time and explain relationships and connections between people and the environment. Essentially geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography). This course covers aspects of physical and human geography.

Study and assessments include:
1. Investigating an extreme natural event and evaluating the consequences of it.
2. Developing a geographic understanding of the sustainable use of an environment.
3. Conducting geographic research, with direction.
4. Describing aspects of a geographic topic at a global scale.
5. Describing aspects of a contemporary New Zealand geographic issue.
6. Applying concepts and basic geographic skills to demonstrate understanding of a given environment using a range of skills to interpret images and maps.

Future Possibilities
