COVID-19 and Remote Learning Invitation
Due to Covid-19 circumstances, student course loads for most classes are divided between two semesters.
During one semester, a course covers the equivalent of curriculum from a full fall term and a full spring term for a total of one year of instruction.
A student receives 2.0 credits per course (equivalent to 1 year of instruction.)
By offering our courses on a semester basis, we are supporting deeper and more focused learning. We offer more personalized support, without sacrificing time allotted to the course. AP courses have the equivalent of twice the amount of time to engage in the content and skills of the course compared to years past.
Human Geography, Advanced Placement – Human Geography is the study of human activities across space. This field of geography is divided into several main subfields such as cultural geography, population geography, economic geography, political geography, behavioral geography, urban geography, and agricultural geography. Each of these subfields studies some aspect of human activities on how these activities manifest themselves on the earth’s surface. Students learn to employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their research and applications. In this course, we will study all of these subfields in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the field of human geography. This course will culminate in the AP Examination. This course is open to students in Grades 9 – 12.
