  • 1. City or countryside?
  • 2. Should people live in the city or the countryside?
    • Half the class write for moving to the countryside and against moving to the city
    • Half the class write for moving to the city and against moving to the countryside
    • Be prepared for a boxing match debate…
  • 3. Boxing match instructions
    • Up to 4 contenders in each team : one at a time get into the ring and participate in the debate. If they run out of ideas they are allowed to ‘tag’ in another contender
    • 3 Judges : are impartial and score the contenders for every very good point that they make.
    • Up to 4 people are coaches: are allowed to call time three times. They should only call time when they think that their contender is flagging, they should then give them more ammunition and continue the debate.
    • May the best team win! (I will call time)
  • 4. What is the rural idyll?
    • In MEDCs urban-rural migration is occurring
    • This is called counter-urbanisation
    • People who can afford to are moving permanently to countryside areas, or are buying a second home there
    • This can have negative impacts on the services in these areas
  • 5. The rural idyll
  • 6. The rush for the cities
    • Watch this clip once to see what it is like in a rural farming area of India
    • Then come up with your own narrative over a shorter part of the clip to outline what it is like in this area, describing the difficulties that people face (these are the factors that would push them to move out of the village and into an urban area)
  • 7. Who moves? What impact does this have?
    • Who are the migrants?
    • Usually young males move from the rural villages to the towns and cities, why do you think this is?
    • They usually send money back home to their families, but their moving away has a serious impact on the villages they leave.
  • 8. China’s changing population
    • This graph is in your booklets
  • 9. The rural idyll vs the rush for the cities
    • Just a minute

    • You are not allowed to repeat yourself, or talk reeeeeaaaallllyy slllllooowwwly!
    • And, you must talk about LEDCs and MEDCs
