18 Geography Concepts

19 Environment The human-environment link The concept of environment refers to the biosphere including living and non-living elements. The environment has intrinsic value and is essential to, and interconnected with on-going human wellbeing. Environments which have been significantly altered and created by human activities such as rural or built environments (constructed urban places) are sub sets of the bio-physical environment. Geographers also identify with and study social, cultural, economic and political environments.

20 Interconnection All things are connected Interconnection refers to the linking of places, environments and spatial patterns either by tangible links such as roads, railways or by intangible links such as political, economic systems or electronic systems. Interconnections are important in understanding why things are changing or need to be changed in different places or environments. Interconnections may occur between features of the physical environment (effect on water on soil), human environment (impact of political decision on industry )or between physical environment and human environment features (impact of water on cities).

24 Change The geographical past and future Places, environments and spatial patterns alter over time. Changes may be quite slow as is the movement of the tectonic plates or they might be quite rapid as the advancement of a bushfire. Places, environments and spatial patterns may be in a state of equilibrium or inertia with little change occurring over a long period of time until an event such as a flood, cyclone or political decision occurs, which rapidly alters the place, environments or patterns. Change is about the future as well as the past. Urban World app

25 Sustainability Sustaining life on Earth Sustainability addresses the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life. Sustainability is a broad social goal linking on-going natural environmental (ecological) wellbeing with human (social and economic) wellbeing. Whilst focussing on the environmental sustainability of the natural world, geographers also talk about social, economic and political sustainability the quadruple bottom-line.

26 Space Mapping space Human and natural features have locations within space. Within a space we can locate human features, such as a town or a specific building. The world is organised spatially i.e. location, distribution and pattern. Where are the 4 corners of the earth

27 Scale The zoom tool Scale is about the hierarchy of divisions from the personal to the local, regional, national, world, regional, global and sometimes, universal. A map is a scaled snapshot of where we are looking at any time the zoom snapshot.

28 This is data attached to place we call it spatial data and it is the raw material for modern geography.

29 Place A sense of place Place describes specific areas of the Earth s surface, and range from a small place such as a classroom, through to a local area, to a country to a major world region. The uniqueness of places is closely linked to identity and culture. Geographers talk about a sense of place and the varying of perception of place. The characteristics of a place include population, climate, economy, landforms, built environment, soils and vegetation, communities, water resources, cultures, minerals, landscape, and recreational and scenic quality. Some characteristics are tangible, such as rivers and buildings, while others are intangible, such as wilderness and socioeconomic status.

43 Geographical Issues related to the Year 7 geography curriculum?

44 A CIVICS AND CITIZENSHIP INQUIRY ABOUT.. Harvest 1.Collect all the information you know about 2. View through the concepts of: Deconstruct Construct Impossible to not integrate the concepts within and across the HASS subjects when studying a topic/issue Question 3. Based on the concepts pose the geographical questions for inquiry (can?, should?, what if? why not?)

45 Year 7 Civics and Citizenship Achievement Standards By the end of Year 7, students explain the role of groups and the significance of particular individuals in past societies. They suggest reasons for continuity and change over time. They describe the effects of change on societies, individuals and groups and describe events and developments from the perspective of people who lived at the time. They identify past events and developments that have been interpreted in different ways. Students describe geographical processes that influence the characteristics of places. They explain interconnections between people and places and people and environments, describing how these interconnections change places and environments. Students identify the ideas, values and principles that underpin the institutions and processes in Australia s political and legal systems. They explain the diverse nature of Australian society, and identify the importance of shared values in contemporary Australian society. Students describe the interdependence of consumers and producers in the market and identify factors and strategies that contribute to the financial success of businesses and individuals. They identifywhy individuals choose to work and the various sources of income that exist. Students recognise that people have different perceptions of places, events and issues and explain how this and other factors influence views on how to respond to an issue or challenge. Students formulate significant questions and propositions to guide investigations. They locate and collect useful data, information and evidence from a range of primary and secondary sources. They examine sources to determine their origin, purpose and reliability and to identify past and present values and perspectives. They interpret and analyse data to propose simple explanations for distributions, patterns, trends and relationships, and evaluate and synthesise evidence to draw conclusions. Students sequence events and developments within a chronological framework, using dating conventions to represent and measure time. They organise, categorise and represent data in a range of appropriate formats using discipline-specific conventions. They make informed decisions by collaborating with others to generate alternatives, comparing the potential costs and benefits of each and developing and using criteria to make a reasoned judgement. Students reflect on their learning to propose individual and collective action in response to an issue or challenge, taking account of different factors and multiple perspectives, and predict the probable effects of their proposal. They present ideas, findings, viewpoints, explanations and conclusions in a range of communication forms that incorporate source materials, citations, disciplinespecific terms, conventions and concepts.
