This file is a great way to introduce your students to the concept of "literacy rate" and to show them how it impacts a country's standard of living. The notes include facts, vocabulary, statistics, etc. I use this file when teaching my students' about Europe, so there are 3 slides about UK, Germany, & Russia, but those can be omitted if you are not studying that area of the world. There are also a notes graphic organizer, review questions, engaging activity, and a ticket out the door printable included in this file.
