Geography and World Cultures (Apex)

Geography and World Cultures is a robust one-semester course that explores how geographic features, human relationships, political and social structures, economics, science and technology, and the arts have developed and influenced life in countries around the world. Along the way, students are given rigorous instruction on how to read and create maps, charts, and graphs. 

Geography and World Cultures is designed to be the first course in the social studies sequence. It helps students develop note-taking skills, teaches analytic writing, and introduces students to the close examination of primary documents. 

This course is built to state standards and informed by standards from the National Council for History Education, the National Center for History in the Schools, and the National Council for the Social Studies.

This updated course was originally created for Apex Courses and is now available in Courseware.
