This was a subject I completed at FE College during
the 1990s, and at that time my destiny lay in becoming
a Geography Teacher (and who knows its not too late
yet). My interest in this subject stemmed from GCSE level,
and my particular fields were in the areas of plate
tectonics and climate.
My recollections of the two years are somewhat vague,
although I can of course recall the lecturers name and
mannerisms (Mr Peter
Rowbotham) and the field trips the group went on. My
one particular memory is of standing on a beach in Humberside (I think
we were looking at land erosion) in freezing cold weather
and driving rain, which I guess is what Geography is
all about. Whilst I did not continue
to study Geography at a higher level I would like to
pick up the subject again at some point in the future.
What I do have thus far is a collection of work undertaken
throughout the two years of study, including lecture notes and
tests. I came out with a B grade at the end of the two
years, which isnt bad!
