Geography Matters? Refreshing our minds
A. Harm de Blij was a well known geographer who wrote the book Why Geography Matters in 2005. He followed up with Why Geography Matters More than Ever in 2012. Having completed the first half of the IBDP Geo course, do you agree or disagree with him? Explain your position in detail.
B. Based on the video and your experience in Year 1, what skills are required to understand geography? Is there danger in not understanding geography?
C. Now that you have revisited the value of geography as a course of study and the skills required to understand/do geography, work with a partner to complete the chart in the file below. Once you have completed the chart, construct a concept map with your partner reviewing what was covered in year 1. You may need to consult the syllabus.
