Geography 303

Geography offers a dynamic, interactive learning environment.  Grade 9 students explore the geologic processes that have formed the Canadian landscape, and engage in inquiry and discussion of current issues facing Canadians: resource depletion, energy production, demographic change, international commitments, trade and defence.  Senior programs (IB SL and non-IB) build on this foundation, investigating trends and issues surrounding travel and tourism, causes and response to natural disasters, and solutions to the most pressing world issues.  Learning is often hands-on: mapping and graphing, playing simulations (e.g., urban planning), using GPS devices in the field or Geographic Information Software in the computer lab, engaging in First Nations debates (Grade 9) and the model UN Assembly (Grade 12).  We’ve got the whole world in our hands.
