Thanks for attending the session.
There is a post from July which contains another of my units/lessons on the the geopolitics of Russia. It is from a presentation I did at the National AP Conference in San Antonio. You may want those materials as well.
The Geographic Perspectives Project is due Thursday, October 1st. Students will have class time on 9/21, 9/22, and 9/24 to work in class on this assignment. No late work is accepted unless previous prior arrangements have been made. Students received the project outline and scoring guide in class on 9/17.
This week we are examining Chapter 1 in Human Geography in Action: “True Maps, False Impressions: Making, Manipulating, and Interpreting Maps.” Tuesday in class students had a chance to complete a reading guide on this chapter. Reading is extremely important in this course, so students got a chance to work in class to see how long it took to scan a chapter and complete a reading guide. This reading guide (and the presentation from in-class today) is preparation for today’s computer lab on the same topic. Both the reading guide from today and the map analysis assigned last are due today, Thursday 9/3. Students have received a complete calendar for this first unit. Students can also review concepts from this chapter at the Human Geography in Action website.
