The Next Level
This section of the Geography in the News homework requires you to do some further research. In our first homework, this requires finding out what the Indonesian Transmigration policy is. This will change in other homework.
Above and Beyond
Above and beyond activities require you to be creating by developing something and/or applying your knowledge. This can sometimes require you to do further research into the topic. You’ll probably also need to make synoptic links. For example, our first Above and Beyond questions requires you to develop a plan of where you would install buoys for a global tsunami early warning system. To be able to do this you’ll need to know where tsunamis can occur. As they typically occur along destructive plate margins you need to find out where they are located.
