Course Outline

Geography ATAR Units 1 and 2 are designed to suit the needs of students considering tertiary study at the end of Year 12. These units focus on natural hazards and impact minimisation as well as the sustainable development of globalisation.

In Unit 1, the focus will be explored through the contexts of geomorphic natural hazards (earthquakes) and ecological hazards (infectious diseases such as COVID-19). Students will investigate the impacts that these hazards have on the natural and cultural environment and the policies being put in place to minimise the risk of these hazards in the future.

The theme of Unit 2 is that of global networks and intercon- nections and how Tourism and Music have globalised and spread around the world and the impacts of this. Units 1 and 2 require students to participate in fieldwork activities involving conducting surveys, fieldwork to the Swan Valley and interviews with experts in their field.

The study of these units helps to develop students’ investigation, communication and analytical skills, in order to come to a balanced judgement and/or solution to complex issues that face the global human population.
