Oxford Big Ideas Geography explicitly integrates content and skills from both strands of Australian Curriculum Geography:

  • Geographical Knowledge and Understanding.
  • Geographical Inquiry and Skills.

Provides comprehensive coverage of ‘Concepts for geographical understanding’ – concepts are clearly explained and supported with worked examples, then revisited with increasing complexity throughout each chapter to reinforce student understanding. Organises learning around meaningful inquiry-based questions, or big ideas, that are closely mapped to the content of the Australian Curriculum: Geography.

The obook is a cloud-based web-book available anywhere, anytime, on any device, navigated by topic or by ‘page view’. Assess is an indispensable online assessment tool, explicitly mapped to the Australian Curriculum that drives student progress through tailored instruction. As well as containing the student text and study tools, this obook offers virtual case studies including interactive maps, videos and other interactives.
