This is a full 1 hour GCSE lesson that introduces urban site, situation and connectivity through a case study of Rio De Janeiro. The lesson is part of a unit on urban change and challenges on the new Ed-Excel spec, though it could easily be adapted to other specifications.
Learning Outcome 1 - 'I understand how site, situation and connectivity of a megacity, at various scales have affected its growth and function.'
This lesson covers the following themes:
- Urban growth
- Economic change
- Site situation and connectivity
The lesson looks at the factors that shaped Rio in the first place focusing on place, space and scale.
Ease of use is the aim, so the lesson includes a compact presentation with instructions and guidance in the notes section below each slide, it also includes referenced, differentiated handouts with printing instructions and is of course, proof read. I have also included a sample question in the pack for G&T students.
