Updates! & Thanks!

Mr. Martin, aka Jeff here, though the more time I spend out of the classroom the less I feel deserving of the title Mr. Martin (yes I consider that an honorable title.)

If you are reading this, you are likely an AP Human Geography teacher or student. You are probably looking for resources or tools to help you succeed in either teaching or passing this course. I truly hope that the resources on this site can be of some benefit to all of you.

I wanted to give a quick update as to my recent endeavors writing curriculum for Subtext. I discovered this app while working as an ELA consultant in high-needs schools in Boston and NYC for Johns Hopkins University. Since December of 2012, I’ve been proud to be a part of an amazing team that has built what I consider to be one of the greatest educational apps out there. And we have the reviews to prove it.

Update: This site is now archival – for new material go to www.martinsclass.com

Go visit http://www.martinsclass.com for anything new on Martin.

It’s been 2 years since I taught AP HUG, and I’ve maintained this site for several reasons:

  1. Thanks to the maps links I put up years ago, this site generates a considerable amount of traffic.  As of date this site gets between 775 and 1000 hits per day.  Mind you, these are not people examining the site, but rather clicking on the maps archived in the map research section of the site.  By putting up google ads, I’m able to generate enough revenue to pay for the $150+ in hosting costs and make a few bucks on the side.
  2. I put hours and hours into this site, configuring it, troubleshooting, getting it just right so that it would be a valuable tool for my students. I can’t bring myself to take it down.
  3. I still love this site – I wish I was teaching AP HUG so that I could maintain it more regularly.

Alas, times have changed – all of my internet activity will be documented at http://www.martinsclass.com.  There you will find twitter, linked in, and other pointless personal links as well.

All the best to you teachers and students!
