Like a lot of subjects, Geography isn't really the same at degree level as it is in school, and I teach in the university sector.
Probably a lot more interesting at degree level...
Sorry, I wrote a whole section about how we don't do our work.
But then I decided that was rude, and defacing the subject, so deleted it
I just hope it gets more interesting next year.
The thing is though, we have it right have music most of the time, so we come from music buzzing after a performance, or learning something new, or a brain teaser with naming notes/transposing/key signatures etc.
Then we come to geography (funnily enough, my friend groups are the same in geography and music) and we sit down. The teacher comes in, and says "Today we're going to learn about the different types of erosion!!!!"
And step by step, we go through the same things we did in year 8, hydraulic action, attrition, abrasion etc. We do the hand gestures to describe the way a rock erodes "Crack, cave, arch, stack, stump, wave-cut-platform"
