This is a compilation of five teaching sequences about patterns of urbanisation around the world. It includes sections on poverty and wealth and how this affects where people live, correlations between the wealth of countries and urbanisation, living conditions in a range of urban locations, and the issues that impact on children in an urbanised world. It uses videos, websites, images and case studies to engage students in processing, analysing and interpreting geographical data and information. Countries in Asia, South America, South Africa and the Middle East are investigated to gain understandings about patterns of urbanisation and the issues that impact on children’s lives in urban settings.
