World Geography Honors is an advanced course in the study of where people, places, and things are located and how they relate to each other. Emphasis is placed on helping the student develop a concern for international affairs and an individual responsibility as a member of the global community. This course examines Physical Geography-mountains, oceans, and climate, along with Human Geography-cultures and peoples, throughout different regions of the world.
Honors level classes can expect more rigorous requirements for assignments and assessments.
This 6-week course is offered for first time credit, for credit grade replacement, or for non-credit enrichment in preparation for taking the course in the future. Please check with your school regarding credit from outside institutions.
