To be able to explain the problems associated with urban sprawl and traffic congestion.
To explain why/how transport can be managed sustainably.
Starts with the question- What are the negative effects of urban sprawl? This is encourage students to think about the problems associated with urban growth and I encouraged them to think about the problems we had seen in Rio.
In order to get the content over to the students, I have devised an A3 worksheet for them to fill in as they watch and then discuss a video about Curitiba. I found a video on Curitiba quite easily via YouTube.
We then did the same about Manchester Metrolink.
I've done this lesson three times now and my weakest group just about had time to finish the slides. With one group I had time to plan the homework answer with them and with the third, we had two students come to the front and debate the two transport schemes.
Homework is- Evaluate the effectiveness of an urban transport scheme(s) you have studied.
