AP Human Geo Summer Assignment

May 25, 2017
Dear AP Human Geography Student,
This fall many exciting challenges and opportunities await you in AP Human
Geography. As the title indicates, this is a college-level course. Its format follows
that of survey classes in many colleges and universities. In addition, college credit
may be obtained if a student scores a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP examination in May. AP
Human Geography brings with it a significant amount of reading. With this in
mind, please plan other academic courses and activities accordingly. Every
assignment or project given by the instructor is done with the College Board AP Exam
in mind.
If you have any questions about the course please arrange to see Ms. Kittle at school,
if we are still in session, or through e-mail. In preparation for the college-level
manner in which AP Human Geography operates, you, the student, need to contact the
instructor if you have any questions. You will need to obtain the required textbook
and review book for the course before the first day of school. Information on these
required texts is included below.
