The lessons and assessments in this book promote skills and content that are taught in the AP Human Geography course as well as other courses in Geography. The teaching tips in each module provide step-by-step suggestions for class activities that will engage and enrich students as they explore a country that has faced many major challenges and has achieved notable successes.
