Geographic skills are a critical part of the Geography course and they are generally woven into the teaching of the different syllabus points. The skills are distinctive to the methodology and approach of Geography as a discipline. While it may seem that there is a long list of skills to learn these are covered during the whole two years. There will be two lists developed to suggest which skills will be covered in Year 12 and which ones will be taught in Year 13 (the Year 12 list is below). It is much better to teach these skills in context rather than in isolation but we will review them before the examimation periods. You could be assessed on any of the skills during the exams and you will further demonstrate them during the Internal Assessment.
