Advanced Placement Human Geography is a high school course equivalent to a one semester introductory college course in Human Geography. Course topics include the nature and perspectives of geography, population, cultural geography, industrialization and economic geography, agriculture and rural land use, urban geography, and political geography.The workshop will focus on the new course articulation for AP Human Geography developed in 2013. During the workshop, participants will be exposed to content information and will be expected to develop lessons, activities, and testing items. Suggested teaching materials and techniques will be reviewed. This includes syllabi, texts, videos/DVDs, computer software, web sites, and other resources. Participants will also be instructed in how the AP® Human Geography exam is prepared and scored. An additional goal for the week will be to develop meaningful field trips (even in urban areas!) to enhance the curriculum. Teachers should bring their 2016-17 school calendars, and encouraged (but not required) to read either Connectography: Mapping the Global Network Revolution by Parag Khanna, or Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps that Explain Everything About the World by Tim Marshall.
