Geography - Above satisfactory - Year 9
This portfolio of student work shows that the student can analyse the interconnections between people and environments. Through an examination of the relationships between biomes and food scarcity (WS1), and trading patterns (WS2), and between human and physical environments (WS3), the student gives comprehensive explanations for how these interconnections influence people, and change places and environments (WS1, WS2, WS3).
The student work shows an ability to select, interpret and analyse multi-variable geographical data and information to answer inquiry questions (WS1, WS2, WS3), proposing detailed explanations for relationships, distributions, patterns, trends and anomalies over time and across space (WS1, WS2), and records findings on a map which complies with cartographic conventions (WS3). The student analyses alternative strategies to respond to a geographical challenge; proposes and justifies a response using environmental, social and economic criteria (WS1, WS2, WS3); and predicts comprehensive outcomes of the proposal. They synthesise data and information to draw reasoned conclusions (WS1, WS2, WS3), presenting findings and explanations using relevant geographical terminology (WS1, WS2, WS3).
