This course takes students on a tour of the world and explores all of the world's continents. Each of the elements of the eighteen National Geography Standards outlined by the National Council for Geographic Education is taught. While examining the physical and human forces that shape our world, students will use geography tools (including maps and graphs) to analyze the ways resources are used and investigate advancements in technology that affect the way we live. Students are motivated by providing solutions to world issues related to geography and are also encouraged to apply what they have learned beyond this world geography course.
