A new and improved edition of the best-selling Today’s World 2 for Leaving Certificate Geography, providing even greater continuity from Junior Cycle to Senior Cycle.
The syllabus requirements for both Higher and Ordinary Level students are met by Today’s World 1 along with either Today’s World 2 OR Today’s World 3.
Today’s World 2 covers the following units of the course:
Elective Unit 4 (Economic Activities)
Optional Unit 6 (Global Interdependence)
Optional Unit 7 (Geoecology).
Two optional units (Higher Level students only) are included. This allows teachers and students to make choices within the syllabus (only one optional unit is required).
Clear, concise and straightforward language is used throughout.
The layout is accessible and student-friendly, and the text is packed with new fullcolour Ordnance Survey maps, photographs, charts, diagrams and satellite images.
Linkages are highlighted within the text.
Continuity has been established with the settings and regions selected in Today’s World 1.
New and up-to-date case studies and statistics reflect the changed economic and social environment of recent times, e.g. fracking in Ireland and deforestation in Brazil.
Leaving Certificate exam questions are provided at the end of each chapter.
