What We'll Do

The curriculum is organized in nine sections. The first, The World and Its Physical Geography, is a preliminary course which lays the foundation for the following eight sections. Global geographic features - including tectonic plates, oceans, continents, mountain ranges, deserts, major lakes, seas, and rivers - are the focus of the first section.

The following eight sections cover Canada, the United States, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia and Oceania. Each of them examines political geography - including countries, provinces, states and capital cities - along with a review and more in-depth study of regional physical geography. Outline and Thematic Maps are among the tools you'll use in these eight sessions.

What You'll Do

Learning is a lifelong process that knows no boundaries, so participants are expected to commit approximately five hours of online study per Expedition and extra time with offline homework. Course material, blank Outline Maps, Thematic Maps, and study aids are provided for home learning. The knowledge and pleasure that participants derive depends on the time and effort they invest.

What You'll Learn

The globe - that colorful, mysterious ball that stood in the corner of your classroom, full of odd-sounding names, twisting rivers, huge stretches of desert. That's what you'll learn. Point a finger anywhere, and you'll have something to say about it or the surrounding area. Pick up a newspaper and you'll recognize the places being written about. The world will become an old friend, still full of surprises but always easy to be with.
