CGU 4U World Geography: Human Patterns and Interactions – Summative Activity
Unit 5: Culminating Activity: Interactions in Human Geography
During the 10-hour time block in Unit 5, students receive support/feedback to complete the course culminating activity, “Interactions in Human Geography”, and complete the final presentations. This activity is introduced in Unit One and time is allotted during each unit of the course for research, use of technology, conferencing, reflection, and group/peer assessment. For this research project, students focus on a large-scale project or event such as the China’s Three Gorges Project, tourist resort development in Mexico, hydro-electric power development in Canada, clear cutting in the Amazon, land development/ creation in Hong Kong, port development in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the industrial regions in the Asian Pacific Rim. A detailed case study is produced, supported by primary or secondary data, and presented in both written essay and oral formats. Students are expected to enhance their presentations by using available technologies.
