This is a great introductory assignment to the Urbanization unit for AP Human Geography. The assignment covers the definition of urbanization and gives some statistics showing the global growth of urbanization. It then gives the reasons for urbanization in the developed and developing world. It also teaches the students the important terms "Megalopolis" and "Mega Cities." Finally the students will look at the "World Urbanization Prospects" report from the United Nations in small groups to promote cooperative learning. This assignment includes a 19 slide PowerPoint and a skeleton outline for easy note taking.
