Geography is a 1/2 credit, 9th-grade course focusing on the diverse ways of life found around the world. Through the study of major geographic themes, students will recognize and evaluate the relationships between people, places, regions, and environments. Students will develop a global perspective and further explore how physical environments affect human events. The major focus is the Delaware Geography Standards: maps, environments, places, and regions with a supporting focus on related concepts found in the state’s Civics, Economics, and History standards.
Assignments, classwork, quizzes, assessments, and projects are assigned points based on the depth of knowledge assessed.
