What is Geography?
In its most basic terms, geography is the study of places, people and environments. The subject of geography can be categorized into two key branches: physical and human geography. Physical geography focusses on natural science, such as the atmosphere and geosphere, whereas human geography focusses more on the study of people and their relationships with the environment. The word 'geography' originates from the Ancient Greeks, who wanted to describe the writings and maps that they were already using to understand their environment. Throughout history, there is evidence of many societies who attempted to understand their place in the world through the people and environments that surrounded them. Geography, in some sense then, has existed for thousands of years.
Why is it Important to Study Geography?
Geography teaches us about contemporary issues from a far-reaching and comprehensive outlook. The issues that play a key role in everyday life, from climate change and resource management to population growth and global development, are all covered in the study of geography. Developing transferable skills and better understanding the world makes geography students highly employable. Furthermore, studying geography does not restrict a student to learning just one subject, but instead, a whole range of topics, subjects and avenues can be explored through the extensive study of geography. As geography links both the social and hard sciences, it teaches students a whole range of skills, such as effective communication, research and reporting skills, and the ability to undertake fieldwork, problem-solve and work well in a team, among many other things.
How will Geography Help Me in the Future?
Geography provides ample opportunities for future growth, both academically and professionally. Different fields of geography will undoubtedly provide varied openings for future work and study. For example, economic geographers will perhaps delve in to predicting the growth of cities, whereas a geographer with an interest in resources and soils may become involved in developing sustainable resources. As geography teaches us about such a wide breadth of topics, many geographers will have skills, expertise and experience in more than one area of study, so will therefore be well equipped to explore more than one aspect of the subject in future endeavors.
Why does Geography Matter?
Geography plays a key role in the world we live in today. Two of the most critical issues facing us as a society are climate change and globalization; both of which involve geography. Without the study of geography, our future professionals would not have the knowledge or confidence to be able to change the direction our world is headed for in the future. Almost all of the stories we see in the media have some relation to geography and experts are often invited to give their opinion on incredibly important issues. Therefore, geography undeniably matters to the development, protection and sustainability of our world.
Who Should Study Geography?
As geography is such a far-reaching subject, it suits the skillsets of a lot of different people. It's a good start if you enjoy learning new things about people, cultures, society, the economy and the environment. You should also be open to new ideas and willing to develop upon your existing geography knowledge and skills. Above all, to study geography, you need a passion for the subject itself. As with any other subject, if you don't have a drive to learn as much as possible and grow your knowledge, you'll soon become bored and dissatisfied.
How Can Geography Resources be Used in the Classroom?
Geography resources can create an engaging and educational learning environment to help all pupils understand hard-to-grasp topics. As geography is such a far-ranging subject (especially in GCSE and A-level, prior to specializing) it is important that pupils can understand every topic and every aspect of geography with clarity and confidence. This will then help them to excel in class, with homework and while sitting exams. With a range of different geography resources available, it will essentially come down to the individual teacher's preference over what resources he/she believes would work best for the class. Posters, revision guides and educational apps can all help to stimulate learning and guarantee comprehensive understanding.
Why Should Geography Posters be Displayed in Class?
Colourful, informative and decorative geography posters displayed in class will help pupils to learn information without even being aware of it. A dynamic and vivid learning environment will also help students' creativity to flow and will encourage the likelihood of unique and varied answers to problems and questions. A plain classroom with little decoration on the walls will feel rather stifling and dreary, yet a colourful and informative wall display can make all the difference to pupils' motivation, and ultimately their success.
What are Geography Pocket Posters?
Geography Pocket Posters are handy, pocket-sized revision guides that can be used by pupils of all abilities to solidify their understanding of topics that have been taught in the classroom.
