Western Hemisphere: Exploring Geographic Issues

We will learn about various historical geographic issues and modern geographic issues in the Western Hemisphere. Geographic issues are used to help usunderstand the impact of physical systems on human systems or the interaction between different human systems. In addition, we will consider national and global perspectives (of past and present geographic issues) and how individuals and nations can influence change as global citizens. As global citizens, we will identify potential solutions considering the global interconnectedness and interdependence of people.
