Strand

Statement

Learning outcomes

Activity

Time, Continuity and Change

Students understand relationships between events in ancient and modern settings and can formally communicate these with reference to primary and secondary sources of evidence. They also understand how ideas and the pace of change impact on different groups in different times and can use inquiry processes to evaluate historical heritages.

5.2 Students represent situations before and after a period of sudden change.

D5.6 Students identify changes in Australia's rural economy using a combination of primary and secondary sources.

D5.7 Students summarise the short and long-term effects of a particular change on a group.

Place and Space

Students understand the relationships within and between ecosystems in different place settings and can use geographical and environmental inquiry processes to investigate these relationships. They also understand the patterns of environments in Queensland, Australia and the Asia-Pacific and can apply values to evaluate the effects of decisions related to industries.

5.2 Students design strategies for evaluating environmental impacts of a proposed project, highlighting relationships within and between natural systems.

5.5 Students evaluate ideas concerning sustainability to identify who may benefit and who may be disadvantaged from changes to a Queensland industry.

D5.6 Students apply ideas concerning sustainability to suggest how natural, social and built environments should interact in a preferred future.

D5.7 Students use appropriate technologies to take action about environmental issues of international significance.

Level 6 - Studies of Society and Environment

Strand

Statement

Learning outcomes

Activity

Time, Continuity and Change

Students understand changes and continuities in various regions and can critique behaviours about causes and effects. They also understand that ideas and beliefs related to changes and continuities can be constructed from different perspectives and can apply the processes of inquiry to identify these perspectives.

6.4 Students produce a corroborated argument concerning causes of a change or continuity in environments, media or gender roles.

6.5 Students develop criteria-based judgments about the ethical behaviour of people in the past.

Place and Space

Students understand the interactions of forces involved in the evolution of places and can apply criteria and geographical data to advocate decisions about these interactions. They also understand representations of spatial patterns and can develop strategies to confront issues in global environments.

6.1 Students use criteria and geographical skills to develop conclusions about the management of a place.

6.3 Students initiate and undertake an environmental action research project based on fieldwork.

6.4 Students use maps, tables and statistical data to express predictions about the impact of change on environments.

D6.7 Students create a performance or product to highlight an environmental issue and to reveal the values held by the issues's stakeholders.
