This is a bundle of all of the lessons for the Urban Issues and Challenges unit as part of the new AQA GCSE Geography specification. This unit focuses on urbanisation, megacities, counterurbanisation, and a chosen case study of a city in a newly emerging economy (NEE): Rio. Within the case study, the location of Rio is examined as well as its importance nationally and internationally, and how it is structured. We then move on to looking at the social, economic, and environmental challenges and solutions and finally look at the management strategies used. This bundle also contains an exam-style assessment to use at the end of the unit.

This is the second week of revision homework. Students are asked to create flash cards for the key terms we have learned throughout the rivers unit. This is a method of studying that most students forget to take advantage of and they can keep the flash cards for their mock exam revision.
Throughout the rivers unit I have included a focus on the importance of constant revision. This is the activity to be completed on the first week. Students will take a multiple intelligences test to see which way they learn best. From there they will look at a website that recommends different revision methods based on their learning style. Very useful if this unit is completed before a mock exam.
