* Description
During our first session, we'll explore the nature of geography and its branches — physical, social, environmental, and regional, and the disciplines of mapmaking and chartmaking to display information tied to locations. During the following seven weeks, we will look at major regions of the world, focusing on physical geography. In our final session, students will present reports on a region or country they have selected to study in detail. Students taking this course will be better prepared to understand historical information, literary references, and current events.
* Meetings
This course meets once a week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
Students will be assigned weekly map work and other exercises to help them become familiar with geographic terms, characteristics of different regions, and map-reading skills. Older students may be assigned more extensive work to help them prepare for high school or AP courses in history or literature.
