Reviewer Comments:

This resource is the second lesson in the unit on developing and developed nations. Students review key terms from the previous lesson, read about policy options for developed nations to help developing nations, and then do a series of activities that help them gain a better understanding of the material. Activities include drawing illustrations of the content, matching options, and writing about what they believe to be the best and worst option. The lesson does not include answer keys, however, the content is available in the readings. It should be noted that some of the lesson is classroom specific and would need to be adapted by individual teachers.
