By exploring human influences and patterns, you can better understand the world around you, make predictions, and propose solutions to current issues. In this course, you will investigate geographic perspectives and analyze historical and current patterns of migration, population, political organization of space, agriculture, food production, land use, industrialization and economic development.

In addition, you will learn helpful strategies for answering multiple-choice questions and free response essay questions on the AP Human Geography test.

Each of the seven modules in this course aligns with the concepts in the Advanced Placement* Human Geography course.

This course is specifically designed for students who are interested in learning more about the AP Human Geography course before enrolling, supplementary support and exam review, and for use in blended learning classrooms.

    This course is very informative, as in it helps you understand things in the world in a completely different way than what the news may be reporting on TV. It may take awhile for some people to fully grasp the concepts discussed in this course, but once you are able to immediately think of full and properly explained responses to FRQs, than you know you've got it.
