Course Description: 

This grade 10 geography course deals with physical geography.  This course has two sections.  Part A, Graphic Environment, helps students develop an understanding of and practical experience in constructing, using and interpreting some of the image, map and graphing skills geographers commonly use to analyse the environment.  Part B, The Physical Environment, deals with the various land, ocean, and atmospheric processes that are at work sculpting the face of the earth.  These processes illustrate that Earth’s ecosystems are in delicate balance and require careful stewardship. 

Extra Help:

If you experience any difficulty with your studies please arrange to see me as soon as possible so we can develop a plan for you to meet your goals; I am available daily at noon hour and most days after school until 4pm.  In addition, students can access extra help from the Assignment Completion Area.  Late assignments will be sent to ACA, students have received a sheet from their homeroom teacher outlining this procedure.
