  • World Geography includes the study of the physical and human characteristics of the Earth; the study of the various world regions; the interaction between humans and the physical environment; the use of maps and other technologies to access geographic knowledge; the study of various cultures; and the characteristics, distribution, and movement of people. The goal of this class is to become a culturally-literate citizen in a global community.
