Geography & World Cultures

The Beekman School's Geography Curriculum Prepares Students for
The Continued Study of History in High School

This is a yearlong course designed to introduce students to the physical and cultural geography of our world.  The course will explore the following essential question in order to understand the differences that pervade the modern world: How does geography affect the development of civilizations? In addition, students will examine the unique elements of culture that create a civilization’s history.  Students will be encouraged to engage in discussions of religion, diversity, environmental concerns, and to think critically about conflicts, political and economic systems, and the impact of geography on the development of cultural beliefs, differences, and diffusion. The students will be dealing with maps on a daily basis, and will leave class with a sense of where they are in the world and why it looks the way it does.

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
