This page introduces the lesson on suburbanization with a couple of fun starters; one based on a1 950s animation and another on a cartoon of US suburban utopia. The lesson is then based on a role play, whereby each student is given an account of suburbanization in one place. These include, the US, UK, China, Mexico and Eastern Europe. The students then create a character to reflect the surbanization in that place, before taking part in a 'speed dating' activity with the outcome that students realise that suburbanization is far more diverse than the Western ' stereotype would have us believe!
