These two days will be used to
review the information and skills
presented in this semester and
measure the objectives learned.
(1)  History. The student understands how geography and processes of spatial exchange (diffusion) influenced events in the past and helped to shape the present. The student is expected to:
    (A)  analyze the effects of physical and human geographic patterns and processes on the past and describe their impact on the present, including significant physical features and environmental conditions that influenced
              migration patterns and shaped the distribution of culture groups today
(2)  History. The student understands how people, places, and environments have changed over time and the effects of these changes. The student is expected to:
    (A)  describe the human and physical characteristics of the same regions at different periods of time to evaluate relationships between past events and current conditions
(11)  Economics. The student understands how geography influences economic activities. The student is expected to:
    (B)  identify the factors affecting the location of different types of economic activities, including subsistence and commercial agriculture, manufacturing, and service industries; and
    (C)  assess how changes in climate, resources, and infrastructure (technology, transportation, and communication) affect the location and patterns of economic activities.
(12)  Economics. The student understands the economic importance of, and issues related to, the location and management of resources. The student is expected to:
    (A)  analyze how the creation, distribution, and management of key natural resources affects the location and patterns of movement of products, money, and people; and
    (B)  evaluate the geographic and economic impact of policies related to the development, use, and scarcity of natural resources such as regulations of water.
(18)  Culture. The student understands the ways in which cultures change and maintain continuity. The student is expected to:
    (A)  analyze cultural changes in specific regions caused by migration, war, trade, innovations, and diffusion;
    (B)  assess causes, effects, and perceptions of conflicts between groups of people, including modern genocides and terrorism;
    (C)  identify examples of cultures that maintain traditional ways, including traditional economies
(19)  Science, technology, and society. The student understands the impact of technology and human modifications on the physical environment. The student is expected to:
    (A)  evaluate the significance of major technological innovations in the areas of transportation and energy that have been used to modify the physical environment;
    (B)  analyze ways technological innovations such as air conditioning and desalinization have allowed humans to adapt to places; and
    (C)  examine the environmental, economic, and social impacts of advances in technology on agriculture and natural resources.
(20)  Science, technology, and society. The student understands how current technology affects human interaction. The student is expected to:
    (A)  describe the impact of new information technologies such as the Internet, Global Positioning System (GPS), or Geographic Information Systems (GIS); and
    (B)  examine the economic, environmental, and social effects of technology such as medical advancements or changing trade patterns on societies at different levels of development.
In Unit #12, students will study current issues that
the world is dealing with.  They will examine how
each issue affects the world we live in and its possible
impact on the future.  The class will discuss the issues
and attempt to develop some possible solutions to the
problems caused by these issues.
