Hi Everybody!

    I am missing you all greatly! The room feels very empty without you - and my messes have expanded beyond the front table! I hope you are keeping yourselves healthy, safe, and entertained. Distance learning is a new thing for me, and I'm assuming for most of you as well. PLEASE communicate with me. If something isn't working or is at all unclear, please let me know. My teacher access doesn't always look the same as your student access, so I might not know if something is funky. The keyword, for now, is FLEXIBILITY. 

    This is a challenging time, no question. Please accept that this trimester isn't going to go "as usual". Do what you can, when you can and know that your best in distance learning might look different than your best in the classroom. That's OK. Use your resources to reach out to me and your classmates as we are all here to support one another. I believe in you and your ability to be successful in this situation.

    World Geography - 1 trimester

    The purpose of Geography is to introduce students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth's surface. Students employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human social organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice.
