GEOGRAPHY

Either or Both Semesters

There are two units of study, Semester 1 is Biomes and Bushfires and Semester 2 is Geographies of interconnections.

In Semester 1 - Biomes and Bushfires focuses on investigating the role of the biotic environment and its role in food and fibre production. This unit examines the biomes of the world, their alteration and significance as a source of food and fibre, and the environmental challenges and constraints on expanding food production in the future. These distinctive aspects of biomes, food production and food security are investigated using studies drawn from Australia and across the world.  This Unit then examines the interconnections between biomes and bushfires, examining the history of Australia‚Äôs biggest bushfires.

In Semester 2 - Geographies of interconnections focuses on investigating how people, through their choices and actions, are connected to places throughout the world in a wide variety of ways, and how these connections help to make and change places and their environments. This unit examines the interconnections between people and places through the products people buy and the effects of their production on the places that make them. Students examine the ways that transport and information and communication technologies have made it possible for an increasing range of services to be provided internationally, and for people in isolated rural areas to connect to information, services and people in other places. These distinctive aspects of interconnection are investigated using studies drawn from Australia and across the world
