planétaire 12 (GLOBAL GEOGRAPHY 12)
This course, which focuses on global geography, explores major themes that help us to understand the nature and origins of complex humanity/environmental relationships in the contemporary world.
Guided by the fundamental themes and skills of modern geography, students pursue this exploration through five themes: Population, Nourishment, The Environment, Global Politics, and Future Perspectives.
By using geographic skills and techniques, learning and applying a body of skills and techniques, learning and applying a body of geographic knowledge, and developing their own planet management awareness, students become informed global geography students. The process of becoming informed enables students to propose reasonable answers to the question upon which Nova Scotia’s global studies courses are built – “How did the world arrive at its current state at the close of the twentieth century?”
