Geography Now 4
Geography Now looks at global issues explained in an Australian context. Students are introduced to a range of geographical concepts, each of which has contributed in some way to shape the human and natural world. Related content in Civics and Citizenship and Economics and Business is included
Information is presented in both textual and visual form. This enables learners to fully appreciate the information and gives insights into the interactions between people and their environment.
The stimulus texts include information reports, tables, maps, illustrations, photographs, breakout boxes and lists. Students respond to each text in a wide variety of ways. A mix of factual and inferential responses encourages students to relate the content to their own lives and communities, and to analyse what they have learnt.
