NCEA Level 1 Geography

11GEO
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Grey

Geography at this level covers a range of topics and skills. 

The external achievement standards involved a study of extreme natural events, and in particular, the Tarawera and Whakaari eruptions. This study also includes a trip to the Buried Village in Rotorua and a visit to Waimangu thermal valley to see effects of the Tarawera eruption. The second external achievement standard involves the application of skills such as map, cartoon and graph interpretation.

Students also cover a selection of internal achievement standards such as research, a current issue in New Zealand such as the use of 1080 and a global study.

This course provides an interesting and broad base for any future studies in the social sciences or in earth science.
