At Nursery I like painting, watching the bunny rabbits in the garden and helping the teachers. I also like playing dancing games on the games console.

Higher Geography

The purpose of this course is to add breadth and depth to the conceptual understanding of physical and human environments and their inter-relationships. Pupils would normally be expected to have attained a pass at Intermediate 2 level, or National 5

 COURSE CONTENT

 The course is made up of three mandatory units 

  • Physical Environments            -     These are the key areas of physical knowledge, which include a number of themes identified at Intermediate 2/National 5
  • Human Environments              -     These are the key areas of human knowledge, which include a number of themes identified at Intermediate 2/National 5
  • Environmental Interactions    -     Two core areas are extended and investigated via ‘real life’ case studies.

 METHODOLOGY

 Fact sheets and worksheets supplement modern textbooks. Maps and videos continue to be used and classes are led on a seminar basis and discussion is encouraged.

 HOMEWORK

 Varied activities are set. These may include ink exercises, quick tests, researching, revising and re-reading course work on a weekly basis.
