I have taught this AP course in a public high school in the south for 9 years. It is part of the designed Advanced Placement curriculum and I have been trained through the College Board on how to best handle these sensitive topics. I am a certified Advanced Placement Human Geography teacher on my valid SC teaching license and National Board Certified for Young Adolescents in Social Studies. I have also been an Advanced Placement Human Geography Reader for the past 6 years where these topics have been tested on the examination and I have scored.
No reading is required. Students should begin to work on the one-page teacher supplied graphic organizer before coming to class.
1 file available upon enrollmentA one-page teacher created graphic organizer will be given to students upon enrolling in the course.

2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course includes discussion on anti and pro-natal government policies, as well as, ethnic conflict. As this is a crash course in the topic discussion we will not debate how and why, but look at what they are and their importance within the curriculum. If a student has taken the formal AP Human Geography course, these topics have already been discussed in class and will be touched on quickly in our time together.
