American Geography is a live lecture- and picture-based class that will cover basic world geography, the nations of North America, the provinces of Canada, and the 50 United States. Students will take weekly notes on each nation, province, or state, create weekly portfolio entries, take regular geography quizzes, and complete an end-of-year project.

The live course consists of:

  • Weekly classes with lectures (see schedule below)
  • Weekly homework: notes and portfolio entries graded on a pass/fail basis
  • Quizzes: given every few lessons and graded objectively
  • Final Project: something creative and hands-on
  • Final grade submitted to parents for their records

The class will meet weekly over Zoom on Thursdays, from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM Central Standard Time, according to the schedule below.
