1º British: What is Geo-literacy?

These two videos illustrate what geo-literacy means to individuals and to our global community.

  2. Why is Geo-literacy important? 

After reading the class information and watching both videos, answer the following questions:
  • What is geo-literacy?
  • What are examples of careers that use geographic thinking and reasoning?
  • What does the sentence “Geography is interdisciplinary” mean?
  • Geography explores three different systems. What are they and how are they related?
  • How might a geographer approach global problems differently than other scientists?
  • Critical Thinking: How do you see the work of geographers in your everyday life?
