The main aim is…
For students to describe the scale of population growth in their NEE case study of Mumbai.
To explain the growth (link to rural-urban migration and natural increase) specific to Mumbai.
To understand how rural-urban migration and natural increase are driving urbanisation in their city
Key ideas and content…
Rural – urban migration drives population growth
Population growth drives natural increase
Most migrants are young (natural increase)
Mumbai is a dominant and important city which attracts migrants (rural-urban migration)
The growth of Mumbai can be explained by a series of events in the history of the city
Rural-urban migration and natural increase are linked
NEE’s are likely to experience rapid urbanisation / population grown in cities because of their socio-economic contrasts
Use the differentiated resources as appropriate.
Include discussion prompts and time the lesson accordingly
Students can peer assess / improve their exam questions or photo analysis answers.
Change/adapt the exam style questions
Students can develop their own questions with mark schemes.
Higher ability should be given the opportunity to link the statements about Mumbai to one another
The photo analysis offers some assessment opportunity if a focus is given to linking concept/theory to what’s happening in Mumbai
The line/bar graphs aren’t suitable in terms of content, however as a skill they could be assessed for accuracy
The exam style questions offer a summative assessment opportunity for the lesson.
