Economics: Lesson 21 - Functions of a Central Bank & Interest Rates

Economics: Lesson 21 - Functions of a Central Bank & Interest Rates

This presentation contains a whole lesson! Specifically, this lesson is for teaching the functions of a central bank and it’s role in an economy. The lesson also looks at the effect of interest rates on a micro level, with a more detailed look at interest rates at a macro level coming later on in the course. 25 slides with questions imbedded. More at an IGSCE level than A-Level. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, specifically slides to prompt/force myself to ask those key questions at the right moments, slides to explain keywords with short and easy explanations, prompts for me the teacher when to use the different activities, games, handouts, articles etc… that make the lesson up as. All the teaching presentations, include starters and plenaries, normally a quick discussion, but sometimes something else and differentiated learning objectives. ALL 82 LESSONS are available as ONE BIG BUNDLE !! Note: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Inspired By.... Janesville: An American Story

Inspired By.... Janesville: An American Story

Janesville: An American Story, by Amy Goldstein. 2017. The 2017 Business Book of the Year. It tells the story of Janesville, Wisconsin, home of a large GM car factory – until it closed in 2008. This is the story of what happened next. To understand modern America, you need to understand Janesville. Teaching as I do mostly foreign children the view from outside is that America is still a land of wealth and opportunity. To see its people, react and vote, in a manner that suggests otherwise is deeply puzzling. Outside the country the US voter’s desperation for change looks merely like ignorance and hatred for everyone else. Outsiders need to understand that large parts of this once mighty nation have essentially been gutted thanks to globalisation and technological change. This lesson hopes to address that need. With a strong focus on EAL needs and vocabulary it tries to tell the story of the negatives of globalisation. It is part of a wider mini-SOW on Globalisation I have made especially for EAL students. I’d highly recommend teaching this lesson in the context of the wider SOW so students get a real appreciation of the larger forces at work. Hope it helps. See more at www.wolseyacademy.com
