Year 8 Geography and the Continent of Contrast

Ms Cartlidge: 8B have been learning about Africa, the continent of contrast. This week we have been looking at the media’s perception of Africa and whether the stats back that perception up. Students were asked to investigate two contrasting African countries and their levels of development. We were also looking at where the theory of knowledge comes from – an International Baccalaureate principal that encourages you to question how you know what you know!

Special thanks to Jaheim Robinson and his grandmother, Betty, who both gave very interesting talks to 8B.
