This resource is a good opening activity for students to better understand the causes and effects of urban sprawl. Topics covered include lower land rates, improved infrastructure, rise in standard of living, lack of urban planning, lower house tax rates, rise in population growth, consumer preferences, increase in public expenditure, increased traffic, health issues, environmental issues and impact on social lives.
Definitely a resource for high school level students, since it goes into some more in-depth content.
The reading guide asks several guided questions for note taking and wraps up with an extension personal opinion essay that requires students to support their viewpoint with information from the article.
The 3 page reading guide is a PDF.
The 5 page article is included in PDF format.
