Geography is the science of the Earth. It deals with its land, features, inhabitants, and phenomena. It is loved by nature lover who want to know more about our mother Earth. It covers everything from topology of regions to hazards and risk management.
IB Geography is an introductory course that aims to highlight interactions between society and geography of a region. IB Geography can be taken at both higher (HL) and standard (SL) level.
At the end of the course, the student should be able to locate and differentiate different features of Earth, interpret and analyse visual data such as maps, chart and graphs, manipulate quantitative data and put qualitative data in context to make informed judgements and formulate and articulate, in a coherent manner, Geographical ideas and themes using case studies and real life examples.
IB Geography is very hard to teach for normal Geography teachers as the syllabus content is very different from normal high school curriculum. We are the only IB centre in Singapore which has an experienced IB Geography teacher.
Student’s Inn offers both group and ad-hoc classes. A structured program is created for each student. . Our tutors first go over the concepts in syllabus and then discuss various ways these can be applied in real-life situations. Case studies are then used to illustrate the theories. Emphasis is placed on use of appropriate terminology and structure. During class, frequently tested questions and techniques to tackle them are discussed and students are given take home practice material to crystallize their understanding of the subject. During review of these questions, if understanding of the subject is found wanting, the entire process is repeated over again to ensure that the students experience improvements in score.
So, in a nutshell, Student’s Inn aims to:
- Enhance understanding of the key concepts and themes
- Improve the ability to analyse and discuss case studies, and visual aids such as graphs and maps
- Enable students to discuss and articulate their ideas in a clear and coherent manner
- Ingrain time management skills through practice of texts and case studies
- Create and sustain interest in the subject through application of theory to real life situations
