3 – 5 Urban Dynamics


In your book there are three units dealing with the Human Geography topic of SETTLEMENT, Units 3, 4 and 5.  In Year 10 (January-February 2017) you worked on Unit 3 and learned about site and situation; functions and hierarchies of settlements; urban land use models; the CBD and cycles of urbanisation.  Two case studies completed that work: Stoneleigh, a south London suburb; and New York, Manhatten as an example of urban problems in the city centre.  You also did exercises from the book on pages 54-55 (Exercises 1, 2 and 4.

As you prepare for mock exams in January it is important to revise this work now.  A three page settlement test will be used in the lesson to remind you of key points you should already be familiar with.  Then looking at your notes from last year, work your way through exercises 6, 7 and 9 on pages 56-57.  (Carry on into homework.)

23/24 November 2017
We will be extending our work on settlement into Unit 4 on Urban Change and pages 58-61 should be pre-read before Thursday’s lesson.
