Delivery Format
Advance Placement

This is the first course in a two-course sequence. In this college level course, students will systematically study the geographic patterns and processes that have shaped our understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students will employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human social organization and its environmental consequences, and will also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice. Students will prepare to take the College Board Advanced Placement Human Geography Examination and possibly receive college course credit. This course is rigorous, fast paced, and requires extensive reading and writing. Students will learn how to approach both the multiple-choice questions and the free-response questions on the AP Exam. In addition, students will engage in class discussions and apply concepts learned to aspects of the real world. In order to maintain the integrity of AP standards, all AP course midterm and final exams must be proctored.
