Level 3 Geography 301
This course will introduce and develop your expertise in aspects of human Geography. Internal assessments include a contemporary geographical issue, a planning problem and a global study. You will develop a wide range of geographic skills including research, map and photograph interpretation, statistical analysis and critical thinking. The course builds on knowledge and skills from Level 2 Geo. but we welcome everyone; it can be picked-up if you have note done Geo. before and are prepared to make an effort.
METHODS OF ASSESSMENT:
Four internally assessed Achievement Standards completed throughout the year (14 credits), plus two externally assessed Achievement Standard examinations completed at the end of the year (8 credits).
