Day & Time: Wednesday 9:00-10:10
Mentor: Stephanie Haynes
This course will emphasize map skills and country locations along with physical geography, ecosystems, climate, major landforms, and bodies of water. We will study how physical processes have shaped the Earth's surface, as well as how humans have modified their physical surroundings. We will learn how these physical features affect people and why people choose to live in various regions. The course will cover Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, Central and East Asia, Australia and Oceania, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the US and Canada.
This course can be taken in conjunction with World Cultures, which will focus on world cultures through literature from various regions and groups.
We recommend taking the Simulations class along with this class. Simulations are a great way to experience what you have learned about in class in a more interactive way. In this once a month class, we will recreate historical and hypothetical events to help students engage in the subject, learn from one another, and have an educational experience they will never forget. We plan on having simulations on the Civil War, Stock Market Crash, WWI, WWII, spreading of a virus, and many more.
Simulations will be held at the Rocklin Center.
All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
