Course Version: World Geography Studies

The World Geography Studies course for high school Social Studies now has two different versions – Conceptual and Regional:

  • Conceptual World Geography course is organized around major geographic themes enabling a comparison of various regions throughout the year.
  • Regional World Geography course is a survey of each major region across the globe and important geographic themes related to those regions.

TCMPC Curriculum and Assessment content has been tagged accordingly and is now searchable in the system using the existing filters on the Quick Search, View TCMPC Components, Search All Components pages, as well as in the Manage Assessment tool.

District Content Creators and basic users also have the ability to tag with a version when creating new content for district and personal use.

The following components are currently utilizing the World Geography Studies Conceptual and Regional version tags:

  • Unit Assessment Items
  • Performance Assessments
  • Rubrics
  • Instructional Focus Documents
  • Year At a Glance
  • TEKS Verification Document

NOTE: Additional Social Studies Courses, as well as Science, will adopt multiple versions later in the school year, and possibly other subject areas to follow in the future (TBD).
