Understanding the Impact of the Three Agricultural Revolutions
Presenter: Dan Synder, APHG Teacher, Pine Crest School, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Description: Necessity is the mother of all invention, and global climate conditions necessitated the onset of three distinct agricultural revolutions throughout human history (V. A. 1-3 of the AP Human Geography outline). Each of these eras were followed by significant improvements in technology, alterations in the urban landscape, and the transformation of regional social organization. Teaching students to recognize the patterns attributed to these changes in history is paramount in understanding the current world, and predicting future trends. Materials including visuals and class activities that correspond with the APHG Course Description will be shared in the webinar.
