Comparing Human-Environmental Interactions

Contributor :

Action Plan

I need to take photos and notes so that I remember the patterns and connections.

Pre-Departure Preparation

In Geography I will share whatever we learn about human-environment interaction, past and present. We will be able to compare what has happened in the mountains in Peru to other mountainous areas of the world, at different latitudes and different cultures. The impact of the topography on agriculture, architecture, and transportation/ movement is will be interesting for Human Geography. In Economics, I want to make comparisons between Peru and the US economic systems and production.

Preparation During Travel

I have been reading "The Peru Reader" to prepare myself.
