Today we discussed some of the issues/consequences that arise from rapid growth of cities and overpopulation in LEDCs. All cities have similar consequences. I handed you photocopies from 2 books to help and you also made some notes.
I also went through how to write an essay so make sure you plan it well and are as concise as possible.
Remember to use the mark criteria too and have your parents read it before handing in.
