Geography Alive 10 for the Australian Curriculum is clearly structured around the Geographical Knowledge and Understanding and around the specific Geographical Inquiry and Skills strands, as outlined in the Australian Curriculum.

Geography Alive 10 for the Australian Curriculum provides the best of both worlds. Whilst the print version of the textbook provides a solid and tangible starting point, it has been re-engineered with links that will launch students into the rich array of online digital resources which stimulate and extend their learning beyond the confines of the pages. This makes it a very flexible resource for both students and teachers to use.

Key Features

• Interactivities, weblinks and elessons are now integrated in each spread rather  than at the end of the chapter.
• Completely new topics and content from a range of regions and scales around the world to address the requirements of the Australian Curriculum: Geography.
• Based on the Geographical Inquiry approach of the Australian Curriculum.
• Up-to-date case studies are vital for Geography students so selected case studies are exclusively online, enabling information and statistics to be updated as required.
• The most comprehensive resource for implementing Australian Curriculum: Geography textbook, eBookPLUS and SkillBuilder and together with links to supporting case studies in the Jacaranda Atlas 8E.
• Activities are clearly structured around the General Capabilities and the seven concepts outlined in the Australian Curriculum.
• Activities provide an opportunity for students to apply their understanding of the concepts to the content.
• Each of the two units to be covered in each year level now has a customised Geographical Inquiry or Fieldwork module based on the popular ProjectsPLUS structure. These are designed to further develop students’ Inquiry skills

Each chapter opener:
• introduces the chapter and relates the content to students’ lives
• Has a link to an introductory video to stimulate student interest at the start of the topic
• Includes starter questions to help students think about their existing knowledge and viewpoints.

Geography SkillBuilder

• Introducing a completely new learning reference/resource — Jacaranda Geography SkillBuilder, which comes free with Geography Alive. SkillBuilders which were in the textbook have been significantly enhanced and brought to life as an interactive online resource, available in eBookPLUS.

• Two skills are described in each chapter. Each skill is explained in a step by step ‘recipe’ and is supported by an eLesson practically demonstrates the steps involved in undertaking that skill.  These “how to” eLessons help  visual learners see what to do and provide a model of what the finish product looks like

• Students then practise and apply that skill to the topic they are studying to deepen their understanding. Students can track their understanding of each skill as they gain instant feedback from questions. 

• Skills are developed in context of topics and address the Geographical Inquiry and Skills strand.
