1 BELRIDGE SECONDARY COLLEGE GEOGRAPHY Natural & Ecological Hazards Global Networks & Interconnections NAME:

2 BELRIDGE SECONDARY COLLEGE YEAR GEOGRAPHY 205 The study of geography draws on students curiosity about the diversity of the world s places and their peoples, cultures and environments. Geography addresses questions about the interaction of natural and human environments within various natural and social systems. It examines the factors that impact upon decisions about sustainability, the conflicting values between individuals and groups over sustainability and the degree of commitment towards sustainable development. The Geography ATAR course promotes students communication abilities by building their skills of spatial and visual representation and interpretation through the use of cartographic, diagrammatic, graphical, photographic and multimodal forms. In addition, students communicate their conclusions by written and oral means. The Year syllabus is divided into two units, each of one semester duration, which are typically delivered as a pair. It is an excellent preparation for Units 3 & 4 in Year 2. UNIT : The focus of this unit is Natural & Ecological Hazards. Natural and ecological hazards represent potential sources of harm to human life, health, income and property, and may affect elements of the biophysical, managed and constructed elements of environments. This unit focuses on understanding how these hazards and their associated risks are perceived and managed at local, regional and global levels. UNIT 2: The focus of this unit is Global Networks & Interconnections. This unit focuses on the process of international integration (globalisation) and is based on the reality that we live in an increasingly interconnected world. It provides students with an understanding of the economic and cultural transformations taking place in the world today, the spatial outcomes of these processes, and their political and social consequences. The unit explains how advances in transport and communication technology have lessened the friction of distance and have impacted at a range of local, national and global scales. ASSESSMENT: The four types of assessment in the table below are consistent with the teaching and learning strategies considered to be the most supportive of student achievement of the outcomes in the Geography course. The table provides details of the assessment type, examples of different ways that these assessment types can be applied and the weighting range for each assessment type Weighting 20% Types of Assessment Geographical inquiry: Plan & conduct an investigation. Examples: assignment, report, oral/multimedia presentation. Approximate Number of Assessments per semester 20% Fieldwork/practical skills: Collect primary data Examples: excursion, map interpretation, data analysis. 30% Short and extended responses: Responding to stimulus questions. Examples: tests, essays, multiple-choice questions. 2/3 30% Examination Examination details There are separate examinations for Stage 2 pairs of units and Stage 3 pairs of units. In their final year, students who are studying at least one Stage 2 pair of units (e.g. 2A/2B) or one Stage 3 pair of units (e.g. 3A/3B) will sit an external examination in this course, unless they are exempt. Each examination will assess the specific content, knowledge and skills described in the syllabus for the pair of units studied. Submission of Assessments: Students are expected to adhere to the school s assessment policy.
