Length:Full Year Class Period: Wednesday, period
Description: As our world "shrinks," the study of geography and the cultures of the world and its people becomes more and more relevant to our lives. This class is designed to acquaint students with each continent by studying the geography, cultures, land forms, climates, resources, economy, religions, and government of each country. We will also take a look at the key historical events and current events of each country.

Tutor: Laura Glassel grew up in the New England area, Germany, and Minnesota. She received her associate's degree in Aircraft Maintenance, her bachelor's degree in Missionary Aviation, and her master's degree in Bible Translation from Bob Jones University. As part of her education, she earned both her aircraft mechanic's and pilot's certificates. During her college years, she tutored high school students, and learned a lot about teaching techniques and learning. She has since been able to transfer her tutoring skills to the classroom situation in order to share her passion for learning with more students.
