I'm using the AP Human Geography Textbook, "The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography" (9th ed.) to create my own Pre-AP course for my middle school daughter in our homeschool. This board has resources I've found to help explain the concepts in the book. I am not in any way connected with the College Board, just a homeschool mom reading the textbook & finding resources I like. Hope you find it helpful too, whether a homeschool or classroom teacher or a student taking the course.
