Description

Class Experience

I decided to teach this class because I am addicted to maps and culture studies!  I love to pour over illustrations of the natural world and analyze human interactions with the environment.  Why not share my passion for all things geographic?  
Assignments may include map skills practice, geography activities, and culture studies.  There will be a final project, where students are expected to study a country on their own and make a presentation (with optional sharing in class).  There is a final quiz due after the last live class session. 
No textbook is required, but students should have access to maps. Ideally this would be a quality atlas, such as the Atlas of World Geography by Rand McNally (ISBN: 0528017896). Every class is recorded and is available for viewing after each class. Therefore, students can catch up if they happen to miss the live session.
Student work will be graded with feedback and a final grade (percentage system) will be issued.  Quizzes are posted as links on Class Marker and automatically graded.  
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will give an assignment that involves a website or suggest websites from time to time as resources.  I have selected websites that I believe are age appropriate.  Parents should also monitor internet usage and use internet filters.
