This is just one of my favorite "start of the year" videos.  I've compiled them for when you need to show the importance of geography, spatial thinking and geo-literacy.  Collectively, they show why taking geography courses is so important, useful and interesting.

If you're looking for material to get students to think of the implications of language and culture loss due to globalization, this article is a great, to the point read.  Also, lets not forget the Vanishing Languages article by Nat Geo- a longer, more thorough breakdown (links below).  Also, if you (like me) are always looking for a video, here's a great Ted Talk on the subject- one of my favorites for culture. 

I especially like the opinions listed at the end of this article.  We could have our students write their own 1-2 sentence justifications either for or against cultural diversity/globalization of language.  Enjoy!

This is a nice little gem of information about the world's biggest annual religions pilgrimage.  Questions- How does this demonstrate characteristics of both global and regional geography?  What logistical problems exist in Mecca, and should the pilgrimage undergo changes in order to protect pilgrims? If so, what changes, and how would they effect the cultural factors and traditions related to the Hajj? 

For a complete documentary covering the Hajj journey from the perspectives of 3 very different Muslims, check out this spectacular video!

Here's a cool way to discuss national separatist movements, in the context of how they effect us here at home.  While the UK, a sovereign state, leaving the EU isn't the traditional form of separatist movement we discuss in AP Human Geography, the European Union does retain a degree of sovereignty over the various states in that organization- agreed upon by all (or most, apparently).  This "Brexit" vote has now re-stimulated the Scotland question, and many others may try and follow suit with Britain.  I've also heard some news coverage questioning whether or not the USA will experience similar movements in the near future.

A longer discussion, this can serve as a source of more information for us teachers to use, in order to add food for thought to the discussion of whether or not Gentrification is more of a good thing, or more of a bad thing.  I encourage you to watch it!  Could also serve as further, more detailed explanation for knowledge-craving APHG students. This one has been around for a while, but it's quite the comprehensive discussion of the geographical concept of gentrification.

AAG's Interactive Modules

AAG's Interactive Modules | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Each module consists of a conceptual framework and case studies. The conceptual framework introduces students to some of the key concepts, theories, and analytical approaches in geography. The conceptual framework provides students with the background they need to think geographically about global issues. The case studies illustrate how geographic concepts, methods, and technologies can be used to investigate and solve problems in different places and countries."

In the unit on the political organization of space, one of the items listed to understand is the various forms of governance, including unitary, federal, and confederate forms of government.


Questions to Ponder: What are the advantages and disadvantages of each system?  How do this impact the human geography and how does the human geography help to shape these governance systems?  What real world examples can you think of for these categories?
