  1. I'm having a heck of a time developing a yearlong World/Cultural/Human Geography course for my rising 9th grader. For some reason, I thought finding high school materials would be easier than it was for earlier grades. I was wrong. There really aren't a lot of options all around. And, if you want secular/neutral, there's practically none. I've read every high school post pertaining to geography on these boards from the past 5-7 years at least three times. I've gone through Rainbow Resource's entire geography section. I've Googled. I've looked at edX, Coursera, and Saylor. These are the resources that sort of made my list. The Great Courses Understanding Cultural and Human Geography Oak Meadow's World Geography (I generally like it, but we already plan to use their Biology, so I fear it might be too much of the same.) Apologia's Around the World in 180 Days (I don't like that it's multigrade. We want straight high school. Many parts we wouldn't use.) Runkle's Geography (Too much physical geography. We want cultural/human geography. And, I'm not sure it's high-school level.) I'm on the verge of just buying Oak Meadow, but I don't really want to. Is there anything else I can pair with Understanding Cultural and Human Geography? Any other resources that I'm missing? (Online won't work for us right now unless it's completely self paced, as we have some family health issues that can potentially uproot our lives at any moment.) What I would kind of like, I think, are 4-6 great book selections and some kind of human geography project guide to pair with the lectures. I don't just want a bunch of papers to write, as we are still working our way through Writing With Skill 2. We have plenty of writing with it. I've tried Googling high school course syllabuses, but all that I find are geared toward the AP test, which DD isn't going to take. Teachers Pay Teachers wasn't much help either.
  2. Which are your favorites? I had a list, but I lost it, so starting over!!! I am awful with remembering titles, so please share your best reads.
  3. Hello, I am in the very early planning stages for preparing an AP Human Geography course for my son to complete at home next year. I may possibly go through the AP audit process, or I may just have him "self-study" and take the exam. Either way, I need a plan/syllabus for the course. Obviously, one of the first steps will be to choose a text(s). According to the AP site, there are several suitable texts for this course. Could anyone give me some feedback on one or more of these texts? (This list has been narrowed down to 3 based on other info I have found on the internet...if you have an opinion on a text not listed, please share). de Blij, H. J., and Alexander B. Murphy. Human Geography: Culture, Society, and Space. Fellmann, Jerome Donald. Human Geography: Landscapes of Human Activities. Rubenstein, James M. The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography. Thanks in advance! Jetta
  4. Came in email today: Website: http://www.scoop.it/t/geography-education'>http://www.scoop.it/t/geography-education'>http://www.scoop.it/t/geography-education'>http://www.scoop.it/t/geography-education Seth Dixon, Ph.D. Assistant Professor Rhode Island College Twitter: @APHumanGeog Website: http://www.scoop.it/t/geography-education This is an excellent collaboration of geography clips from all over the web. What I found was that the graph/chart/visuals were really well represented.
  5. I have often heard the AP Human Geography test is a great first AP test. Does anyone have any experience with it? Did your dc take an AP class or self-study with a review book? Which curriculum did you use? I was considering BJU Geography with the DVD (feel I may need the handholding...this high school stuff is scarying the pants off me!!) with a review book. But I have NO idea if this is a good choice for the AP exam. And remember, I know nothing about teaching High school or preparing for AP tests :willy_nilly: I am open for any other suggestions though... I also have the opportunity to have a friend teach them (who has a degree in Geography), along with her daughter, but she doesn't have any experience with the AP exam either. She plans on teaching them mapping skills using one of the mapping by art or mapping by heart or something, and then use the review book for the text on culture.... I don't know why but I Feel VERY uneasy about this.... I have also considered the PA Homeschoolers online class but I have twins so that would be quite costly (but not totally un-doable... but would rather save PA Homeschoolers later for "harder" AP tests, if needed) Please share with me your experience preparing your child for the AP Geography exam. I tried to search, but didn't come up with AP Geography specifically. :001_unsure::willy_nilly::001_unsure: Thanks, Grace
  6. Please, please, please help me narrow down our book list for our Introduction to World Cultures & Religions study for my 9th grader. I want to focus on studying the cultures and religions (we are doing a separate physical geography program). So far, this is a compiled list of various titles mentioned by other people studying world cultures. I have not yet previewed all titles and obviously, I don't plan to cover all of these. Please tell me which titles you would cover for each continent and why. If there are any that should definitely be eliminated, please tell me that too! Cultural Geography Book List Spines: ?
