Geography

Aims:

  • to inspire a passion for Geography within learners which encourages an interest in the subject beyond academic achievements, for the rest of their life
  • to encourage learners to think like geographers through an enquiry-based approach to contemporary topics of study
  • to develop fieldwork & geographical skills which are transferable.

Course content:

Distinctive landscapes

Population and Settlement

Natural Hazards

Economic Development

Climate change

How is the UK changing?

Resource security issues

Biodiversity


Structure:

The course content will be delivered using a range of teaching & learning styles to engage the learner. The content of this demanding GCSE course will be broken down into manageable sections and re-visited using a range of multi-media based apps. The traditional skills required in the subject will be embedded into our teaching so that core geographical skills are developed.


Assessment:

The students will be assessed using three different exams;

A Human Geography exam – People & Society (including assessment of fieldwork skills) lasting 1 hour 15 minutes - 35% of the marks

A Physical Geography exam – Our Natural World (including assessment of fieldwork skills) lasting 1 hour 15 minutes - 35% of the marks

A Geographical Exploration exam (involving a decision making exercise) with assessment of fieldwork skills lasting 1 hour 30 minutes – 30% of the marks
