Match each example to the type of migration

  1. _____My cousin, Heather moved from Elgin, IL to Rome, Italy.
  2. _____ My friend, Lynsday, moved from Westerville, Nebraska, then to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and finally to Oak Park, Illinois when she secured her first teaching job in Chicago, IL.
  3. _____ Migration can have positive and negative effects on the areas that "export" people and the areas that "import" people. Income sent home by Turkish migrants (gastarbeiter) working in the German car industry have helped their families back in Turkey. On the other hand, the loss of young men creates an unbalanced population structure within Turkey.
  4. _____ In 1994 there was a bitter civil war in Rwanda between two ethnic groups, the majority Hutu and the minority Tutsi. Subsequently many refugees, mainly Hutus, fled from Rwanda to neighbouring countries. Approximately two million went to Zaire and half a million to Tanzania.
  5. _____ As countries joined the European Union many workers from poorer nations have exercise their right to travel to and work in other nations such as Britain.
  6. _____Spain's government faces a more insidious kind of separatism that diminishes the country's economic strength and potential for growth. Young Spanish engineers, and other professionals, are increasingly leaving home to find jobs elsewhere. Who can blame them when starting wages offered in Bavaria are twice as high as what they can earn in Spanish industry?
  7. _____ The struggling economies in Latin American countries have created difficulties in terms of providing for their families. In recent years, the United States has seen an increase in young males from these regions.
  8. _____ Many ethnic enclaves (is a geographic area with high ethnic concentration, characteristic cultural identity, and economic activity) were created in Chicago as friends, family and neighbors moved into certain parts of the city from their homelands.
  9. _____ In recent years, migration from Mexico to the US has slowed. Despite depictions in the media, a bettering Mexican economy has lured many US-living Mexican migrants back to Mexico.
  10. _____  During the Great Depression, many farmers were forced to move off their land: they couldn't repay the bank-loans which had helped buy the farms and had to sell what they owned to pay their debts. Many migrants headed west to 'Golden' California, thinking there would be land going spare, but the Californians turned many back, fearing they would be over-run. The refuges had nowhere to go back to, so they set up home in huge camps in the California valleys - living in shacks of cardboard and old metal - and sought work as casual farmhands moving from farm to farm.

Review From Unit 1: Making Connections to prior learning

  1. How does the gravity model relate to migration (think WHERE people are moving and WHY)

  2. How does friction of distance related to migration? Explain.

Review from Migration KIS: Reviewing notes

  1. After reading the section  International Migration Patterns on page 81, review and rewrite you make 2 summary statements regarding global migration patterns.

  2. Although the reasons people leave their countries to immigrate to the U.S. have not changed over time, what has changed here in the U.S.?

Applying Knowledge: Reviewing notes

Explain and use REAL WORLD examples (think historical or current) to explain the following. I have done some examples for you.  Use info from your textbook, notes, and outside sources if necessary. You can use examples related to the United States and the world.  You can skip 2 boxes-your choice-just X them out.

Intraregional migration

Interregional migration

International migration

Intranational migration


Many Chicago residents are leaving the city, citing fear of violence and also searching for better climates, for cities in the Sunbelt like Houston and Atlanta.

Many families, young men, and young women in Bangladesh are moving to Dhaka, the fastest growing megacity in the world. The city’s infrastructure is completely lacking and cannot keep up with the increasing number of migrants.


White Flight in Chicago in the 1940s-1950s. Movement of white population out of the city of Chicago and into the surrounding suburbs.


In the US, “white flight” moved populations out of the cities and into the suburbs, with residents commuting to the cities for work. As of 2002, many suburbanites no longer commuted to the city at all, as corporate headquarters have followed them beyond the edge of the city into rural areas where land is cheaper for factories, small shops and other services. Counter urbanization has replaced urbanization as the dominant force changing the nation's settlement patterns.
