World Studies


World Studies constitutes an important part of the core curriculum. The program is designed to help students develop essential knowledge and understanding of basic concepts of the Earth's science that they can apply in a wide range of situations. It draws widely on the knowledge our students acquired in their subjects, such as Math, Science, Languages, etc., thus implementing an interdisciplinary approach towards studying.

The program focuses on exploring the main five themes of Geography as a science that studies the Earth and its physical features. These themes are location, place, human/environment interaction, movement and region.

Great emphasis is placed on developing such important skills as map and globe skills, skills of gathering, processing, evaluating and analyzing information, critical thinking, and oral presentation skills. These are the skills that are vital to success in our students' future life.
