Content

There are two units of study in Year 10 Geography: Environmental Change and Management and Geographies of Human Wellbeing.

'Environmental Change and Management' investigates environmental geography through an in-depth study of a specific environment. The unit begins with an overview of the environmental functions that support all life, the major challenges to their sustainability, and the environmental worldviews, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Students investigate a specific type of environment and environmental change in Australia and one other country. 

'Geographies of Human Wellbeing' investigates global, national and local differences in human wellbeing between places. This unit examines the different concepts and measures of human wellbeing and the causes of global differences in these measures between countries. Students explore spatial differences in wellbeing within and between countries and evaluate the differences from various perspectives.
