Advice for a new economics teacher

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by Lorelei131, Aug 29, 2011.

  1. Evening,

    My school is starting GCSE Economics this year, and I have been asked to teach it? any advice? Resources? Web site?
    Thank you so much...
  2. What exam board. Is it AQA?
  3. sorry OCR.....
  4. This course might be useful if time/budget allows.
    Keeping your case studies / examples fresh helps maintain motivation. Use articles from newspapers (or The Economist towards the end of the course once their skills are sharper and you're feeling adventurous).
    Make use of the schemes of work here and the Teachers' Guide, which contains links to other resources.
    Show a keen interest in what you're doing and communicate it to students.
    • The subject will help them to understand better the country and the world in which we live and to make informed decisions.
    • We can use economic theory to try to tackle some of the world's biggest problems.
    • It's a subject that many follow to A Level, undergraduate degree and further still - getting themselves a good career in the process!
    Have fun [​IMG]
