Settlements in the UK Flip Learning gives the students pre-lesson knowledge that they are expected to read before each lesson. Each lesson of knowledge is provided allowing the teacher to conduct different activities with students prior knowledge allowing less teaching but more embedding of their understanding. It also creates revision before, during & after the lesson to improve results.
Lesson 1: Investigate the economic, social, political and cultural processes that have
transformed large urban areas in the UK with some urban areas growing fast.
Lesson 2: Examine how these processes have led to variations in the quality of urban residential areas
(including housing, services, amenities and recreational areas), and the levels of deprivation within large urban areas.
Lesson 3: Identify different types of rural settlement, including remote rural communities in upland areas, retirement communities, commuter villages, and explain how these have developed.
Lesson 4: Investigate two contrasting rural regions in the UK, e.g. the Highlands of Scotland and South West to explain the variations in the quality of life and levels of deprivation.
Lesson 5: Examine the environmental, social and economic impacts of rising demand for residential areas in one urban area in the UK.
Lesson 6: Evaluate the success of strategies to improve urban areas, e.g. ‘rebranding’ and urban regeneration.
Lesson 7: Examine the role of rural development schemes and larger projects, e.g. the Eden Project in
stimulating growth in the rural economy and arresting outmigration.
Lesson 8: Evaluate the success of planning policies such as ‘green belts’ and National Parks in both conserving valuable landscapes, as well as allowing economic development.
