Included in Class Fee
Taught using a distinctly, creative, highly interesting strategy of mnemonics, this continuing one-year world geography course will help students shape a more in-depth mental map of their world around them. Mini documentaries with vivid visuals, energizing music, crisp narration, and entertaining story lines will describe interesting facts about each country, e.g., mountains, rivers, lakes, languages, etc., while showing actual footage of the country, maps, satellite views in each country. By turning the shape of each country into a memorable object through mnemonic lessons (mental map), your students will be able to easily recall a country’s location, size, shape, bordering countries, capital, and interesting facts around continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, The Americas & Oceania. The Student Activity Workbook includes student mnemonic drawing pages, fill-in-the-blank questions, atlas exercises, continent map quizzes, practice drawing sheets (maps with great circles and exact longitudinal/latitudinal coordinate information with grid lines) which will be used for assessments. *New students are welcome to join this class mid-year!
World Geography is an important foundational course of study for both jr. high and high school students (history/social studies elective for high school credit).
