A short unit on development. This was taught to students who had already met objectives for writing DBQs, while those who hadn't were remediated.

Lessons include:

  • Developed and Developing Nations
  • Policy Options
  • Population Growth in Africa
  • Population Growth in China
  • Human Rights
  • Offshoring
Resources include projects and quizzes.

This resource is part of the Social Studies 7 course.


After remediation week, there were still quite a few students who hadn't met the DBQ requirements. So Ben did a one-week enrichment unit on international development with the finished students, while the others completed their requirements.

This lesson compares developed and developing nations and asks why we should care about international development.
