This class is a survey of America’s people and places, studied by regions of the United States. Students will practice map skills and learn about the country through the five themes of geography—location, place, human-environment interaction, movement, and region.  Class discussions will highlight the positive character traits of the people who helped shape our culture.

 

The objective of this class is to equip students to better understand the country in which we live. The course is a helpful foundation for US and World History classes.
