History/Geography


 

As in other subjects, the Humanities classes are led by the teacher using the microphone (backed up by text, whiteboard and multimedia software).  The students respond with a combination of short written answers, verbal responses, and using our interactive whiteboard.  Frequent dipping into other websites for materials (especially pictures, text, and video-clips) is normal in History and Geography lessons at Briteschool, especially given the geographic location of the students!

 

Introductory Humanities is cycled over a two to three year period, with history and geography each being taught as a discrete subject by a specialist teacher for one hour a week. The courses satisfy the main requirements for the Common Entrance Exam and Key Stage 3 in the UK, but also have the flexibility to address topics with a global relevance and to respond to the interests of the students.


 

Home assignments are set most weeks; these are marked and feedback is given to the student.

 

Exam Students will be offered both IGCSE Geography and IGCSE History this year.  Students who have already commenced a course similar to the IGCSE will be welcomed, and the course delivery adapted to suit their requirements as far as possible.
