Geography in the International Baccalaureate
Semple, Stuart; Dawson, Elisabeth
Journal of Geography, v107 n4-5 p198-201 Jul 2008
The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is doing much to promote the teaching of geography in schools. Since its establishment in 1968 to provide a common curriculum and university entrance credential for children of a geographically mobile international community, it has evolved and now includes schools in national systems all over the world. As part of the curriculum group "Individuals and Societies", geography is thematic in organization, human in focus, and comprehensive in coverage. The geography syllabus can prove challenging to both teachers and students. Workshops are provided in each region to introduce new teachers to the assessment standards and practices of the IBO.
