Christian Keil Host: Christian has been a Geography teacher for 9 years, teaching year groups from KS3 to KS5. He specialised in outdoor fieldwork prior to teaching. Alongside teaching, for the past 3 years, Christian has been an Examiner which allows him to understand exactly what is expected of students to receive the grades they wish to achieve.

Urbanisation is the movement of a population from rural to urban areas. In this class, students will examine the different reasons people move to the city (urban areas), spending time to focus on PUSH and PULL factors. Students will also consider the rate of urban growth across the world in developing and developed nations, linking back to contributing factors throughout the lesson. This is a common topic in Geography exams and assessments so is useful for students as revision of the subject or those keen to get a head start.
