Geography shapes people who, in return, shape past, current, and future events. Geography shapes the way people live, their cultures, their jobs, and their families. It also shapes governments, nations, and populations. Technology today, has created a connection across global channels and made the world smaller place. This connectivity has made it so small that ideas, cultures, governments across the globe can affect us domestically. This class will not only discuss current events, world cultures, and issues, but prepare you for future social studies classes.
