Global Geography 12

Course Description

Global Geography 12 explores major contemporary global issues, using the discipline of geography, in an attempt to answer the question, “How did the world arrive at its current state at the beginning of the twenty-first century?” Global Geography 12 is organized into six units: The Global Geographer, The Planet Earth, Population, Resources and Commodities, and Urbanization. The Global Geographer introduces students to the discipline of geography and establishes important year-long expectations related to skills and understandings, including the concept of interdependence. The Planet Earth examines the unique planet Earth, its ecosystems, the planetary state of health, and the relationship between humans and natural disasters. Population examines measures of quality of life, population distributions and densities, and vital statistics. Urbanization looks at patterns of urbanization, models of urban structure, growth trends, and urban improvement strategies. Global Geography 12 students will also be expected to employ research methods appropriate to the discipline of geography.
