    WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE STUDENT EDITION
    "The book is reasonably compact and is well written."
    –Billy Goodman, Passaic Valley High School, NJ

    "I love the fact that we finally have a textbook that follows the CED. I have found that many of the real life examples are blended right into the pages and it flows very well. This is a great book for freshmen. Love how the vocabulary is located right there within the page."
    –Dana Evans, Reagan High School, TX

    "I like the real life samples for the students to see the application of vocabulary and key concepts. Many times they understand the definition, but need examples that show how things are applied for better comprehension."
    –Jeffrey Begeal, Harding University High School, NC

    "I think that the content is very comprehensive and the writing is very clear and at the correct level for the students that we teach. It also has excellent visuals such as large maps and photos to analyze. The AP® practice questions both multiple choice and FRQ are excellent for both teachers and students."
    –Morgan Patel, Montgomery Blair High School, MD

    "[The book is] concise and clear enough to be accessible to students, but extensive and deep enough to cover completely the content required to prepare them for the exam…. I enjoyed reading the text and I think my students would too."
    –Matthew Ence, American Preparatory Academy, UT

    “...I now have the Barbara Hildebrant, Ken Keller and Max Lu authored text, Human Geography for the AP Course, with the TE written by Kelly Swanson. [I'm] never, ever going to use anything else. Not only is the text fully aligned to the CED but it has lots of MCQ and FRQs within each module. Additiona lresources are awesome as well. While I teach seniors, the text is very accessible for 9th graders.”
    -Kim Howard Schiller, AP® Human Geography Table Leader, American Geographical Society Teacher Fellow, The International School of Minnesota

    "I have been teaching AP Human Geography for 18 years.This is, by far, the best resource I have come across."
    –Jim Huston, Bloomer High School, WI

    WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE TEACHER’S EDITION
    "The Teacher’s Edition is a one-stop shop for teaching AP® Human Geography. You don’t need to carry around the CED binder and other supplemental texts because everything you need to effectively plan for the course is in this Teacher’s Edition. It is obvious that it was written by an experienced AP® Human Geography teacher."
    –Josie Perry, Rising Sun High School, MD

    "I love the suggested pacing guide and examples."
    –Carol Ward, Windsor High School, CO

    "As an experienced reader, I love “Kelly’s Corner” and think that it will help more teachers see the value of attending the reading. I also really like the bellringers. They seem low-prep for teachers and highly engaging for students."
    –Laura Kmetz, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts, TX

    "ALL. THE. RESOURCES. I can’t emphasize that enough. Mr. Swanson’s done an exceptional job pulling together resources and planning tools to make my job much easier. I have 5 preps; I don’t have time to scour the internet for myriad ideas/lessons/videos to augment the lessons. He’s pulled it altogether [sic]."
    –Kimberly Schiller, The International School of Minnesota, MN

    "The breadth of AP® Human can be intimidating for new teachers and challenging to get through for anyone. The features here can support teachers in their weakest areas and help them streamline their favorites."
    –Rachel McLemore, Mount St. Mary Academy, AR

    "…the Teacher’s Edition would streamline the planning and creating of lessons to better teach content, make connections throughout the course. The skill building sections placed in the content areas will also help in planning and creating so that it’s very easy to include skill learning while delivering content. I also very much appreciate the Challenging Content sections because sometimes it’s difficult to know what students are/will struggle with."
    –Emily Jackson, Georgetown High School, TX

    Max Lu

    Max Lu has been involved in AP® Human Geography for almost 20 years. He went to his first reading in 2003, the third year after the AP® Human Geography course was created. Since then he has gone to the reading almost every year, filling roles as a reader, table reader, and question leader. From 2007 to 2015, Max served on the College Board’s AP® Human Geography Test Development Committee and was co-chair for the final three years of his service. As a College Board-certified consultant, he has taught AP® Human Geography workshops and summer institutes around the country since 2007. Max received his BS and Master’s degrees in China and his doctoral degree from Indiana University. He is currently a professor in the Department of Geography and Geospatial Sciences at Kansas State University. His research has dealt with such topics as population migration, rural population change, regional inequality, and the geography of methamphetamine labs. An interesting fact about his life as a geographer is that in the last 30 plus years, Max has lived at about 40°N in latitude in three different places: 6 years in Beijing, 6 years in Bloomington, Indiana, and then Manhattan, Kansas where he currently lives and teaches!

    Roderick P. Neumann

    Roderick P. Neumann is a professor of geography in the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies at Florida International University. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley. He studies the complex interactions of culture and nature through a specific focus on national parks and natural resources. In his research, he combines the analytical tools of cultural and political ecology with landscape studies. He has pursued these investigations through historical and ethnographic research mostly in East Africa, with some comparative work in North America and Central America. His current research explores interwoven narratives of nature, landscape, and identity in the European Union, with a particular emphasis on Spain. His scholarly books include Imposing Wilderness: Struggles over Livelihoods and Nature Preservation in Africa (1998), Making Political Ecology (2005), and The Commercialization of Non-Timber Forest Products (2000), the latter coauthored with Eric Hirsch.
