Teacher essay summary

4 star(s)

This is a good introduction but prone to waffling at times. It incorporates appropriate models and gives a good overview of the key themes for this project. However, there is some repetition and it is very long for an introduction.

Geography coursework

The aim of my geography project is to find the economic centre of the CBD of Leeds (i.e. the area of highest value in the CBD of Leeds).

First of all - what is a CBD?

A CBD (central business district) is an area that dominates the commercial and cultural activity in a city. The CBD is normally found in the centre of a settlement where you can find a range of simple shops from cinemas, jewellers, department stores (e.g. Debenhams), offices, public buildings e.t.c, also this is the area of a town/city where businesses like to set up as it is the most accessible part of the settlement.

In the beginning, Leeds began as a Saxon village. By the time of the Domesday Book (1086) it had a population of around 200.
