In AP World History: Modern, students investigate significant events, individuals,
developments, and processes from 1200 to the present. Students develop and use
the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and
secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and
utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The
course provides six themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make
connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the
environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social
interactions and organization, and technology and innovation.
Welcome to World Geography, I look forward to seeing you in the classroom!
 
In World Geography Studies, students examine people, places, and environments at local, regional, national, and international. Students describe the influence of geography on events of the past and present with emphasis on contemporary issues. A significant portion of the course centers around the physical processes that shape patterns in the physical environment; the characteristics of major land forms, climates, and ecosystems and their interrelationships; the political, economic, and social processes that shape cultural patterns of regions; types and patterns of settlement; the distribution and movement of the world population; relationships among people, places, and environments; and the concept of region. Students analyze how location affects economic activities in different economic systems. Students identify the processes that influence political divisions of the planet and analyze how different points of view affect the development of public policies. Students compare how components of culture shape the characteristics of regions and analyze the impact of technology and human modifications on the physical environment. Students use problem-solving and decision-making skills to ask and answer geographic questions.
