Geography is the study of physical and human characteristics of the Earth’s people, places, and environments. This year in World Geography, students will develop geographic thinking skills by studying the “why of where” as they examine the interactions, interconnections, and implications of forces shaping our world today. They will apply geographic knowledge and geo-literacy skills to identify, locate, interpret, analyze, and evaluate geographic patterns and processes. These standards emphasize both human geography and physical geography, and students will explore the interconnections between the two. Please email me at AbbyW@provo.edu if you have questions.
