Course Description

Summer 2020 • Grade 6 and above • History Sequence

Around the World in Nine Weeks

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, using short videos, animations, and live chat discussions, 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.
