ASSIGNMENT

Today, you will be using the textbook to continue our exploration of Unit 6: Cities & Urban Land Use. Our focus will be on Chapter 12: Services & Settlements. Read Key issues 1 and 2 which span from pg. 432-441. The reading will introduce the (3) three types of Service sectors (Consumer, Business, and Public). The reading will also serve as a refresher for Walter Christaller's Central Place Theory and the elements of Threshold and Range. Other topics that will be covered in the reading include the Urban Hierarchy, Rank-Size Rule, Primate Cities, Gravity Model, Food Deserts, and Periodic Markets. This reading will be the foundation for the next couple of assignments. There is no need to answer any questions for this reading, JUST READ!

Naturally, the journey we will embark upon over the next couple of weeks (maybe even for the rest of the school year) is not an easy one. It requires a great deal of self-motivation and discipline on your behalf. There isn't anyone to check for understanding or answer questions (at least not immediately) about the content. Thus, you must not become discouraged and you must be willing to take on any and all challenges that you may encounter as we break away from the traditional sense of Education as we have known it. Let us embrace this challenge, keep things positive, and move forward with what NEEDS to get done.

Monday, March 23, 2020

  • For the 2019-20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered.
  • Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be two different testing dates.
  • AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
  • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they've worked this year to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
  • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
  • We recognize that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. Working with partners, we'll invest so these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach us directly to let us know.
  • The exam questions are designed in ways that prevent cheating. We use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams. Scoring at-home work for an AP Exam isn't new to the AP Program. For years the AP Program has received and scored at-home student work as part of the exams for the AP Computer Science Principles and AP Capstone courses.
