World Geography (Credit: 1.00)In an increasingly interconnected world, equipping students to develop a better understanding of our global neighbors is critical to ensuring that they are college and career ready. This course empowers students to increase their knowledge of the world in which they live and how its diverse geographies shape the international community. It begins with an overview of the physical world and the tools necessary to exploring it effectively. Subsequent units survey each continent and its physical characteristics and engage students and encourage them to develop a global perspective.
