I am unaware of how Illinois covers geography, but we (at Fort Osage) cover it from 5-7th grade, and we thread it through every Social Studies class until 11th grade, when it becomes a stand-alone class. At schools surrounding us, it is a 9th grade required class. Needless, to say, how well it is co...
