Lesson 2: Biophysical and Social Drivers
In this lesson, students will learn about the various biophysical and social drivers which impact land use in detail. They will then use their knowledge about urban land use as a class to explore various data sources (maps, charts, figures, etc.) to determine how these drivers have influenced land use in New Orleans. Students will then relate their understanding of the case study to the Ecological Services Model.
