Credit Recovery - Geography B

Course Description

This Geography course will examine a broad range of geographical perspectives covering all of the major regions of the world. Each region will be reviewed in a similar structure so students can clearly see the similarities and differences between each region. Specifically, the course will explore where each region is located along with its physical characteristics, including absolute and relative location, climate, and significant geographical features. The exploration will then continue on to look at each region from a cultural, economic, and political perspective, closely examining the human impact on each region from these perspectives as well as how human activities impact the environments of the region.

This course has been designed with the credit recovery student in mind. The course content has been chunked into smaller topics and additional interactive practice activities have been added to the course. Diagnostic quizzes are presented to the student, allowing them to pass through areas of content that they may have previously studied successfully. Post-topic quizzes are presented with each topic of content. Audio readings are included for all portions of content, allowing auditory learners the opportunity to engage with the course. Test pools and randomized test questions are utilized in pre- and post-topic quizzes as well as unit exams.
