Geographically Yours

Geographically Yours | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

"If an urban population demands the freshest vegetables, they should be produced within a 24-hour field-to-table delivery zone.  What, therefore, should be the highest and best use of agricultural land between Taiwan's two largest cities, Taipei and Kaoshiung, only 200 miles apart?  The Lord of the Rings, a.k.a., Johan Heinrich Von Thünen, has the answer."  [2011]

This image and analysis comes from the blog "Geographically Yours" by Don Zeigler.  He's a well-traveled cultural geographer and has been collecting great teaching images over his career and is now sharing them on this site.  These pictures are great discussion starters and bell ringers to start the day.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 5, 2013 11:13 PM

This image communicates the importance of agriculture and marketplace relativity. in an area where transportation is minimal and people happen to be more more poorer then need to supply needed resources in a timely manner is very important. Farmers and resource providers need to be close enough geographically. This image shows an outside clothing and food market were people get to shop around and choose in a convientent ways there most needed items. The umbrella suggests rain as the child and other shoppers are being covered. This outdoor market doesnt necessarily suggest poverty but a wide range of population given a convenient location to buy goods quikcly and efficiently. The market may be located in a urban downtown area or also a village central area. Regardless the location, and goods provided shows the valuable commodities need to be provided in a manner, freshest possible for delivery.

It is said that locally grown food can have more nutritional value than organic if the latter comes from thousands of miles away. If you had to choose, which would you rather have, locally grown or organic?

This is a great course site from an experienced Flordia teacher.  The 'Unit Presentations' tab would be an especially helpful resource for review material (best viewed in Internet Explorer).

What we can learn from Mexico

What we can learn from Mexico | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, the president told a newspaper the solution to partisanship is politics and more politics.

Marissa Roy's curator insight, October 23, 2013 9:46 AM

This article is particularly interesting. It is so common to hear about the drug wars going on in Mexico, but much less common to hear how the country is doing economically. It makes sense that their economy is growing, as the United States imports many goods and products from across the border. This goes hand in hand with how the Mexican government also pays their workers more than most Chinese workers recieve. Mostly it is their geographic location to the United States that is making their economy grow.

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, February 4, 9:22 AM

The future of Mexico is starting to look better and better as President Enrique Pena Nieto increases taxes, competition and takes on the teachers’ unions. With these reforms, Nieto is looking to build a better Mexico and succeed other surrounding countries.

Maria Lopez's curator insight, February 8, 2:44 PM

This is a great article describing the turn around that Mexico has made in the world. It is attempting to put its self on everyone's political map and I believe it is succeeding. Not only is heavy trading with the United States beginning to show its positive impact on the Mexican economy but Mexico is also in trading agreements with over 44 different countries. Even though Mexico may have issues with corruption, drug cartels, and labor conditions, it is still a country on the rise. The Mexican economy is growing and people would be a fool to ignore this fact.

I liked how in this video it gave the viewer a preview of what you will learn in AP Human Geography. When I signed up for this class i thought I was going to have to memorize every country, its location and capital. This video let me really know what I was going to learn over this year.
