Geography - Below satisfactory - Year 7
This portfolio of student work shows that the student can describe some of the human and geographical processes that influence the characteristics of places, and how places are perceived and valued differently (WS1, WS2). The student explains some spatial distributions and patterns among geographical phenomena, and proposes simple explanations for interconnections between people and places and environments (WS1, WS2).
The student locates relevant information from secondary sources to answer geographically significant inquiry questions (WS1) and simply evaluates sources for their usefulness. They analyse multi-variable data and geographical information to identify some relationships and propose simple explanations and draw conclusions (WS1). They represent data and information about geographical processes, distributions and patterns in several formats (WS1) including graphs and maps which conform to some cartographic conventions (WS2). The student proposes strategies in response to geographical challenges and describes some economic, environmental and social considerations (WS1, WS2). They present findings and proposals in a range of digital and non-digital formats using some geographical terminology and graphic representations (WS1, WS2).
