Geography - Below satisfactory - Year 9
This portfolio of student work shows that the student can analyse the interconnections between people and environments. Through an examination of the relationships between biomes and food scarcity (WS1), and trading patterns (WS2), and between human and physical environments (WS3), the student gives simple explanations for how these interconnections influence people, and change places and environments (WS1, WS2, WS3).
The student work shows an ability to select, interpret and analyse multi-variable geographical data and information to answer inquiry questions (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student proposes simple explanations for relationships, distributions, patterns, trends and anomalies over time and across space (WS1, WS2). The student analyses alternative strategies to respond to a geographical challenge; proposes and justifies a response using some environmental, social and economic criteria (WS1, WS2, WS3); and predicts the outcomes of the proposal. They synthesise data and information to draw simple reasoned conclusions (WS1, WS2, WS3), presenting findings and explanations using some geographical terminology (WS1, WS2, WS3).
