12GE

Level 2 Geography

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Lanigan

We will study the South Island High Country as an example of a large natural environment. We learn about the formation and characteristics of the environment and how people perceive and interact with the environment.

Wellington is used as an example of an Urban Settlement; learning about the history and development of the city, pattern within the city and how cities change.

Our study of development, using examples of places with differing levels of development, will aid our understanding of how development can be measured, factors that influence development and strategies for reducing differences in development.


Pathway
