This course is also offered in French, which counts as a credit towards the Ashbury Bilingual Diploma – students must be enrolled in Extended or Immersion level French. This course examines interrelationships within and between Canada’s natural and human systems and how these systems interconnect with those in other parts of the world. Students will explore environmental, economic, and social geographic issues relating to topics such as transportation options, energy choices, and urban development. Students will apply the concepts of geographic thinking and the geographic inquiry process, including spatial technologies, to investigate various geographic issues and to develop possible approaches for making Canada a more sustainable place to live.
Due to the unique opportunity provided by summer school learning, students will participate in a variety of field work activities. Planned activities include a trip to Montreal's Biodome and Biosphere, as well as local trips to Gatineau, Mer Bleue and Hog's Back Falls. This field work will allow students to study geo-physical and environmental concepts using real world applications.
To cover the cost of the field trips the course fee will be $1,300.
