Geography Curriculum 3 - EDMT6608

Year - 2018

This unit of study will focus on teaching the Geography Syllabus for Years 11-12. In this unit students will study particular issues facing students studying for the HSC in NSW schools. Students will build on their previous studies in Years 7-10 Geography and further develop teaching strategies, resources and assessment techniques for teaching Stage 6 Geography. Added emphasis will be placed on assessment strategies and programs for the Preliminary/HSC course in Geography focusing on NSW Board of Studies requirements. Additional emphasis will be placed on strategies, skills and resources for both fieldwork and the Senior Geography Project. Students will also look at the ways the study of Geography for the HSC can lead to various post school destinations. Professional association membership and HSC marking will be promoted throughout this unit.
