National Geographic Learning, a Cengage Company, Introduces New Advanced Placement Human Geography Program to Support Distance Learning
BOSTON, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- National Geographic Learning, a Cengage company, is providing the first geography program sponsored by the National Geographic Society, a global nonprofit organization promoting the study of geography since 1888.
Human Geography, A Spatial Perspective AP Edition is a new program, developed to align with the College Board framework, and to provide learners with an engaging, rigorous and accessible approach to geography. Unique features of this text include:
"As the number of students enrolled in AP Human Geography continues to grow rapidly each year, ensuring students have the tools and resources they need to gain mastery of the subject is vital to success on the AP Exam," said Vincent Grosso, SVP and Managing Director at National Geographic Learning. "We are thrilled to launch this new Human Gegraphy program in partnership with the National Geographic Society to provide advanced placement students with an engaging, accessible text designed specifically to align with the College Board course and exam description."
The impact of COVID-19 has posed a number of challenges for educators, and with back-to-school rapidly approaching, much is still uncertain. Human Geography, A Spatial Perspective AP Edition is well suited for classrooms that need to adopt a distanced or hybrid approach. For the fall semester, a digital teacher's guide and etext will accompany print versions so that teachers have both a print and digital option to teaching AP Human Geography. Furthermore, the entire course will be available online with MindTap, offering customizable learning portals for teachers and students starting in January 2021.
"Understanding geography has never been more important because it helps learners to see the whole picture—to draw connections, explore patterns and inspire solutions to today's complex and interconnected global challenges from a pandemic to biodiversity loss and everything in between," said Dr. Vicki Phillips, Executive Vice President and Chief Education Officer at the National Geographic Society. "We're proud to partner with trusted sources like National Geographic Learning to provide students with the resources and tools they need to deepen their knowledge of real-world issues as well as build strong foundations to think critically, become informed decision-makers, solution-seekers and the architects of change that our planet needs."
Human Geography, A Spatial Perspective AP Edition is available now. For more information on the partnership and AP Human Geography program, visit: ngl.cengage.com/aphumangeography
