I'm A Believer

Geography is a field of study that tries to make sense of the world around us. Geography also helps us to understand how people, places, and environments came to be and how they affect each other. The central key to our understanding of the concepts of geography will be the “Big Idea”.... that is, the idea that people impact places and places impact people. As members of the global community your actions (or inactions) could change the world!

The eighteen standards (as published by the National Council on Geographic Education) shed light on what the geographically informed person should know and understand. My hope is that every student in World Geography will become an informed person through an understanding of these standards.
