Human Geography (soan 1250)
The Advanced Placement* Human Geography summer institute at Carleton College is designed for both experienced and non-experienced teachers. We will examine best practices, teaching resources, technology, assessment development, review strategies, and lesson ideas for the seven major topics of the course (Introduction to Geography; Population; Culture; Political; Agriculture and Rural Landscape; Economic Development and Industrialization; and Urban). Participants will recognize key information and topics necessary to begin a successful Human Geography course and lessons will be modeled for each of the seven topics. Additionally, participants will identify tips and strategies in preparing students to take the AP* Human Geography exam.
