 AP Human Geography

Class overview

The AP Human Geography course introduces students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their research and applications. The curriculum reflects the goals of the National Geography Standards. In order to better develop a local and world geographic perspective, we will view a variety of landscapes In order to better understand current events. This course stresses analytical thought, research and study skills, as well as factual knowledge and the ability to relate places and events to broader themes.
