World Geography

Students examine people, places, and environments at local, regional, national, and international scales from the spatial and ecological perspectives of geography. Students describe the influence of geography on events of the past and present. The course will focus on the physical processes that shape patterns in the physical environment, and the social processes that shape cultural patterns of regions. Students compare how components of culture shape the characteristics of regions and analyze the impact of technology and human modifications on the physical environment. Students use problem-solving and decision-making skills to ask and answer geographic questions. This course is the introductory course to the high school social studies AP Program. The course cannot be entered at mid-term.
