This is a guided notes packet (with graphic organizers) for the topic of LDCs and the obstacles they must face when trying to move to MDCs. It goes over the two approaches to development (Self sufficiency model and the International trade model). It asks students to define the approaches, identify goals of each and record down advantages and disadvantages of each model. There is a second notes page on Rostow's Development model that covers all 5 stages and critical information. This set of worksheets is great for an in class activity or to use as a preview or review homework assignment. Some teachers even section it off and give parts of it as entrance or exit tickets over the course of a few days. An answer key for both pages is also included, which takes the guess work out of the material that should be included.
