Urbanization - Megacity Case Study Task & Student Samples
Attached here is the major assessment task I use for my grade 10 International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) Humanities unit on Urbanization. This task and unit could be easily adapted to any high school level geography/social studies course.
Students select a megacity not studied in detail as a class. They are expected to provide an analysis of their city, its land use patterns, challenges the city faces, and offer solutions to these problems.
Attached is the task sheet and assessment rubric - followed by five
student samples of graded work - ranging from high to low quality work. These samples include: Guangzhou, Dhaka, Cairo, Bangkok, and Moscow.
If you are interested in purchasing the unit plans along with these samples, this is available to be purchased as a bundle in my store. Please click here to access.
