Geography Short Course broadens students' horizons

Published

The Geography Short Course adds to ASDAN's range of popular and flexible Short Courses. It has been authored by the Geographical Association.

The course comprises a series of challenges, grouped into nine modules covering topics such as Physical Processes; Food, Energy and Waste; and Tourism. The topics offered have been chosen on the basis that most will not have been taught at Key Stage 3. It is about real places. Much of it uses the student as a starting point. It is about their place in the world – how they live in it, how it is changing for better and for worse and about their future in it. It will be about broadening their horizons so they get a sense of seeing the bigger picture through social, economic and environmental lenses.
