Population growth: Brainstorming

Contextual information

This Year 12 class was held at a medium-sized non government girls’ school in metropolitan Adelaide. As part of their year 12 course, the students have been studying Population Geography ‘mostly on a global scale’. In this lesson, the teacher’s stated purpose is to get students to ‘look at the population of Australia and try and relate it to what you have done on populations and relate it to what you are doing now on environment and ecosystem and ecological footprints’. This sample of practice occurs at the point at which the students have been given the task of brainstorming ideas about the factors that will encourage or restrict population growth.
