Global Development Trends



This study guide introduces students to global development trends over the past 50 years.


It includes a link to reading called  “Understanding The Last 50 Years of Global Development” by CFR along with comprehension questions on how development is measured, global trends on poverty, literacy and GDP and on the factors that have enabled or hindered development in Haiti, Singapore and Syria.


The culminating activity asks students to identify the claim that the author is making about development trends and synthesize information from the reading to support it.
