Perspectives on the Development and Future of Advanced Placement® Human Geography
Hildebrant, Barbara
Journal of Geography, v115 n3 p137-138 2016
Advanced Placement (AP) Human Geography faced a number of hurdles that nearly derailed the course before it launched in 2000-2001. A dedicated cadre of geography professionals and high school teachers rose to the challenge and the course remains one of the fastest growing AP courses currently offered by College Board. Seventeen readers and leaders scored 3,272 exams in 2001. The numbers increased dramatically to 160,013 exams scored by 597 readers in 2015. This article briefly discusses the early challenges, and considers three long-term goals.
