AP Human Geography Field Trip Explores Miami's Investments in Transportation, Cultural Landscape and Climate Gentrification

Students in Mrs. Massa's AP Human Geography class participated in a field trip to learn about our city's latest investments in urban and regional transportation.⁠

They visited Brightline Central Station where they conducted interviews and practiced participant observation techniques.⁠

After, they walked around the Central Business District and rode on the Metromover to visually identify the urban changes occurring. ⁠

The trip concluded in Little Haiti, where they explored the most iconic places of this cultural landscape and learned about its history and rich culture with a visit to a Botanica, a small store that sells remedies, charms, incense/candles, and other items used for spiritual purposes.⁠

Students witnessed the process of urban abandonment as the city heads toward a process of climate gentrification with challenging consequences for its diasporic community.⁠
