A.P. Human Geography

What you need to know to be successful!

Description

This class introduces students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and organization of the earth. Students will employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human organization of space. This AP Human Geography class teaches spatial relationships at different scales ranging from local to global.

This class is designed to meet AP standards and requirements (these can be found on the AP College Board website). The class will prepare students to take the AP Human Geography test in the spring. Students are encouraged to prepare for and take the A.P. Test

Homework Policy

  1. All work needs to be neatly completed and turned in on time. If work is not turned in when due, you may turn it in late for a maximum grade of 70. Some assignments may require outside research and/or need to be typed. The library is open before and after school so broken computers, broken printers or no internet connection are not acceptable excuse for not completing an assignment.

  2. Make up work is the responsibility of the student and will only be allowed for excused absences. If you know that you will miss class (field trip, sport, etc.) you must turn in assignments before you leave on that day.
