Global Settlement: Patterns and Sustainability

  • A1 Application: Interrelationships between Settlements and the Environment
  • A1.1 analyse some of the ways in which the physical environment(e.g., climate, landforms, soil type, vegetation, natural resources) has influenced settlement patterns in different countries and/or regions around the world
  • A1.2 analyse how processes related to the physical environment may affect human settlements in the future
  • A2 Inquiry: Human Settlements and Sustainability
  • A2.1 formulate questions to guide investigations into issues related to the interrelationship between human settlement and sustainability from a geographic perspective
  • A2.4 interpret and analyse data and information relevant to their investigations, using various tools and spatial technologies
  • A2.6 communicate the results of their inquiries using appropriate vocabulary (e.g., settlement patterns, population distribution, population density, land use)
  • A3 Understanding Geographic Context: Settlement Patterns and Trends
  • A3.1 identify significant spatial patterns in human settlement on a global scale (e.g., linear, scattered, and clustered patterns in populations in different regions; global patterns in population density and/or distribution)
