Why Geo-literacy?

Course Objectives: Human Geography focuses on how people make places, how we organize space and society, how we interact with each other in places and across spaces and how we make sense of others and ourselves in our localities, regions and the world. By the end of the course students should be able to fully comprehend this discipline and demonstrate that understanding on the AP exam.

There are clear Learning Targets found on each unit page.
