Always Do the Reading
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because it gives a whole new meaning to humans and our impact on the world! With this class you will learn how two people from very different countries can have more in common than you ever thought. You will learn about diffusion of cultures as well as the diversity of languages, and how religion plays a part in our way of life. AP Human Geography is the perfect course to take when you want to see the world in a new light. We aren't just a cluster of people! Instead each individual is someone who matters and has the ability to effect the world. You will learn about how humans contribute to agriculture, economy, religion, culture, linguistics, and so much more.
In this course I was able to not only indulge myself in the lives of many cultures, but to understand their ways of life. How does the population growth of a country effect it's ability to sustain healthy economic standards? How can we improve the world by simply having less children? What is it that's preventing developing countries from evolving? What does communication, transportation, and connection through social media have to do with diversion of cultures and beliefs? What are the roles of women in various societies? There are so many questions that will be answered in this course, and you will gain a new understanding of not only yourself but the people around you.

Advice for students:
When taking this course, it is best to first keep an open mind and read the material from a standpoint that is unbiased--and from there decide which side you partake in based off what you've learned. It is important to thoroughly read and watch videos that pertain to the subject, and to understand them fully and be able to create arguments from the knowledge you acquired. Since it is an AP course, you should purchase the latest Princeton Review or other AP exam study aid and begin reading at the start of the class. Highlight key points and spend extra time reading the material to understand it thoroughly. This will be important when you take your AP Exam.
