My students are a very unique group. They come from widely disparate socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. We are lucky to have a great deal of ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity at our school, which is characteristic of Santa Fe and New Mexico in general. I have Native American students, Anglo students, Hispanic students, Pakistani students--and the list goes on!
Many of my students are first-generation Americans.
They are ALL excellent students. They take a rigorous college-prep curriculum, and their hard work and excellent performance has led us to become one of the top schools in the both the state and nation. Our students are proud to call themselves Phoenixes--and we are proud to teach them!
My students are in need of a companion text for our AP Human Geography class. It allows them to find definitions and examples from a reliable source that they can take home, which is useful because many don't have internet access once they leave school. These dedicated students would make great use of these texts. They are taking AP Human Geography as an elective. Many of them are choosing to do so as seniors with multiple other AP classes, jobs, and responsibilities. They want to learn!
Human Geography creates global citizens in a rapidly changing world.
The students will study the causes and effects of immigration and climate change, examine urban and rural landscapes, and analyze the pressing challenges that human civilizations face. It’s a class that will give these young people a factual basis to understand and address relevant topics that are widely and often-inaccurately discussed in our contemporary society.
