Why take Geography?

In Geography, we teach you the skills you need to SOLVE PROBLEMS. You will exercise your creativity and become an innovative thinker! 

I can THINK like a Geographer. I can ask these three questions whenever I examine an issue in Canadian or World Geography: 

What is WHERE?

I can ANALYZE like a Geographer. I can use the following Geographic Thinking Concepts as I learn:

Geographic Perspectives: 
I am able to consider multiple perspectives to solve problems, make decisions, and create plans of action. I consider environmental, social, economic and/or political implications.

Spatial Significance: 
I am able to determine the importance of a place or region and understand that humans, animals and plants can have different and unique relationships to this place or region.

I am able to explore and critically analyze connections within and between human and natural systems.

Patterns and Trends: 
I am able to recognize characteristics that are similar and repetitive in place and time.
