World Regional Geography – LETU GEOG 2013/Honors
This dual credit/honors class focuses on the cultural geography of our world by examining the broad issues that affect the “realms” (continents and/or culture regions) and then focusing on specific “regions” within those realms (see textbook title). Students will complete readings and submit reading assessments each week. Other assignments will include tests and projects (group and individual). During live class time, students will share information and ideas, through presentations and participation in class discussions. A working microphone is highly recommended. An important aspect of the class will be a study of world religions and the ways that the Gospel impacts people around the world.
Please view prerequisites and required supplies below.
Special Note: This course is available as dual credit; however, a student does not have to dual enroll to take the class. This is a rigorous course intended for students ready to handle university-level content and pace. Please contact the teacher if you have any questions about placement.
