The last section of the specification that we HAVE to cover is settlement.
Site . dry and wet point, aspect, shelter, defence, resources and communications. Many siting factors important in the past are now no longer important due to technological change. Settlements with a favourable site especially in respect of communications e.g. gap towns, route
centres and bridging points often grew into trading centres.
Urban morphology models of an MEDC and LEDC city , contrast in morphology. This includes detailed study of one MEDC & one LEDC city. We will mainly study LEEDS & Rio de Janairo.
Definition and causes of urbanisation.
What factors have infuenced the SITE and SITUATION of Boston Spa?
Start with factors that affect the site & situation of settlements. The S Cool Revision site is really good for this (or use the text books). You need notes on the factors that determine the site & situation of a settlement. DO NOT JUST PRINT OUT from S-Cool! Then answer the question about Boston Spa. Complete this plus homework task before the next lesson.
Homework: Watch this! Its a production by BBC schools in Northern Ireland & its examples are from Northern Ireland but it will provide an excellent review of the introduction to the topic.
