The Prometheus Academy - High School World Geography
Sharing the fire of learning
It becomes more important every day for us to have a deeper understanding of the world. We need to pursue knowledge of not only where countries are on a map, but also what factors shape the culture, economics, and politics of those countries. Geography blends the study of natural environments with human societies. Our excellent textbook offers up-to-date information from more than one perspective. Students are expected to do reading at home in order to fully participate in the class. Each student also chooses one global issue (such as literacy, climate change or gender equality) to follow through all the regions we study, preparing informational maps to share.
This world geography course is high school level and therefore appropriately rigorous. However, we will still enjoy foods and guests from different countries!
