Charlotte as a Window to the World: Finding Global Phenomenon at Work in Your Own Backyard

Tommy Phillips, Social Studies, Northwest School of the Arts




This curriculum unit is designed to create a local connection between the activities and designs of the Charlotte metropolitan region specifically and the South in general to the wider, global activities and designs connected to the field of human geography. The goal is to bring these academic terms involved with the curriculum to life by presenting them in very familiar, local formats. This unit will shadow the broader goals established by the College Board in preparation for the AP Human Geography exam.
