As you all know the subject of Geography is my passion. Just like any other class, what you put into and hope to get out of it is determined by your state of mind. One thing that is important to understand about geography is that it drives our world.  Whether it is taken as an 8th grader or junior, what I will be sharing with you is meant to help you develop an understanding of how our environment has influenced who we are and how we live.

Global Studies 8 is an introduction to the basic concepts of geography. We will look at how the earth has influenced our lives and survey the world in regard to culture, economics, population, and politics.

As an 11th grader you are preparing to make many critical decisions in your life and these decisions are going to be influenced by many aspects of geography learned in Human Geography. 

Current Issues is an elective open to juniors and seniors who are interested keeping up with what is happening around the world. Rather than teaching this class I act more as a facilitator and much of what you learn will be based upon your particular interests.  

In the end, my hope is that what you learn will help you find "your" place in a world that is becoming globally interconnected ecologically, culturally, economically, and politically. 

Please make sure you are checking the Global Studies 8, Current Issues, and Human Geography links/buttons to the left on a regular basis, especially if you are absent.
