Level 2 Geography
Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Welsh
LEARNING ACTIVITIES: The course is based around two external standards: Development issues (Tanzania), and Geographic Skills (using maps, graphs, photos etc). There are three internal standards: the Research standard is based around collection of data and observations across Auckland on a one-day field trip. The Current Geographic Issue standard looks at Auckland’s Housing Crisis. The Urban Pattern standard looks at the pattern of murders in the city of Chicago.
In addition to the content and case studies, students learn a range of skills such as gathering, presenting, analysing and interpreting data, together with practical techniques.
