Places for People: Urban Settlements is suitable for Year 12 Geography students, based around the focusing questions for the prescribed common topic Urban Settlements.
All of the focusing questions are applied to each of two case studies:
an urban settlement of continental importance (Singapore)
an urban settlement of national importance in New Zealand (Auckland)
as required by the curriculum document. These studies allow students to build on knowledge and ideas from the Monsoon Asia population section of School Certificate, and introduces them to the idea of planning, studied in Bursary Geography.
The book contains plenty of information on both cities, enabling students to gain a comprehensive coverage of the topic. This includes new, up-to-date maps which include all the features students and teachers will want to refer to. In addition, examples drawn from around the world illustrate important geographic ideas on a global basis.
