Welcome to ...
Welcome to World Geography with Coach Harrison! Born and raised in Houston, and a graduate of Texas Lutheran University, I am excited to be on this inspiring journey with my students to see the world through the eyes of others.
World Geography is an amazing place to start in high school! Learning that there is so much more out in the world than what is just right here in front of us is a great way to encourage our students to explore more than just what they know. World Geography combines sociology, economics, government, and history all together to give an elaborate view of the wonderful world in which we live. In this class we travel the world and learn about different cultures, compare and contrast governments, and understand how the global economy works. World Geography is a hands-on class and students work with atlases to find places of geo-political significance, create projects that immerse our students in the culture and lifestyle of people around the world, and even create media about what they are learning! Feel free to ask your students what they are learning.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at any time. I will get back with you fairly quick. The success of my students is extremely important to me. I believe if we work together, we can accomplish anything, and help students to grow.
I am looking forward to working together to making this a spectacular school year!
