8 May, 2020: Population and Urban Drift 1

This is the first integrated session of the Student Learning Continuity Program for Years 10-12. It is made possible by the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development.

Lesson Topic: Population and Urban Drift Research

Presenter: Sonia Basile

Population can be defined as the number of people living in an area, town or city whilst urban drift is when people from rural areas moving into urban centres. These terms have been identified as key concepts found in the studies of the three subjects History, Geography and Development Studies. The crises that History taught help us to understand the causes and effects as well as the changes that follow after. Importantly, it is the people who felt the effects of these changes. For instance, Geography and Development studies further develops our understanding of the influences on population distribution and changes and the factors that caused the movement of people from one place to another such as the rural-urban drift.

Our task title is STUDY OF POPULATION:

  • Factors that influence population change and movement of people.



  • Structured Inquiry – Question and instructions are provided for students to follow to reach the solutions.
  • Students actively engage and taking ownership of their learning/self-directed/student centred
  • Students can do research, experiment, investigate, collect data, analyse & interpret to find solutions to the question.


Task Key Questions:

1) What are the factors that influence the population and the movement of people within the society?

2) How do these factors influence the population and the movement of people?

3) What are the effects of these changes in the population?
