Earlier this year my students completed a field study around the Sydney Harbour foreshore from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay.
This was part of a major unit of work within the syllabus topic: Issues in the Australian Environment. A description of my approach is found here.
The project was supported by the SSC Leichhardt Geography Blog and after the students had completed a report on their field study activity, as part of an assessment task, I merged two student reports as the base document for a Wiki on urban processes.
Here’s a wordle based on the two papers.
That was in 2010.
Not long ago we repeated the field study. My feeling is that this years students really understood the issues at a deeper level than last years. Here’s the wordle from the two best students reports.
