Encyclopedia of Earth IB English A: Language & Literature: Written tasks Throughout this course, you will build a portfolio of written tasks. There are two types of written tasks, known as written task 1 (WT1) and written task 2 (WT2). These are very different in nature. Written task 1 is an 'imaginative piece' in which you demonstrate your understanding of the course work and a type of text. Written task 2 pertains to HL students only. Remember: An essay is not an acceptable type of text for the written task 1. WT1 basics Written task 1s are between 800-1000 words long. * At SL students must have written at least three written tasks 1s. * One of the two tasks submitted at HL is a written task 1 and the other is a written task 2, meaning that HL students submit either 'possibility 1' or 'possibility 2' from the table below. WT1: what it is and what it is not The written task 1 can be difficult to write, if you do not understand the nature of the task. WT2 basics (HL only) Written task 2s (also called 'critical responses') are between 800-1000 words.

It enables pupils to better understand the ‘messiness’ of ‘geographical reality’, develop subject knowledge, and gain a range of skills that are difficult to develop in the classroom alone.

It also aids motivation and self-development. This resource aims to help teachers to introduce and develop fieldwork with students in both primary and second schools. In each section we have listed useful resources along with introductory text to help you find the most useful materials for your needs. ‘The environment is at the heart of everything we do and we believe being outside in different habitats offers exciting challenges that students may not otherwise get the opportunity to experience.
