AP Human Geo
Welcome to AP Human Geography.
AP Human Geography is a yearlong course that focuses on the distribution, processes, and effects of human populations on the planet. The course contains the following units: population, migrations, culture, language, religion, ethnicity, political geography, economic development, industry, agriculture, and urban geography. Emphasis is placed on geographic models and their applications. Case studies from around the world are compared to situations in both the United States and locally. Students are expected to think and formulate their own views. Students will acquire skills through work with primary documents in making cause and effect relationships, identifying trends and cycles and detecting bias. In this course there will be discussions on a wide variety of human geography subjects some of which are controversial in nature. Please be aware that every effort is made to ensure that discussions are relevant to the students’ understanding of the material and tolerance is promoted. Lastly, please remember that writing is a manifestation of analysis and the thinking process.
