Investor Game

Investor Game

I use this with my year 12 students at the end of the summer term. Just a bit of fun really, but actually, there's plenty of Economics in it.

snickers - intro to demand game

snickers - intro to demand game

I run this game as an intro to D&S - before ever mentioning the theory. After the game all students have a better understanding of the concept & can then 'frame' the theory arround a kinesthetic game. Not my own, taken from BIZED - but adapted & modernised from what I think was an American college Ec website (at least 3 years ago!) With good old tippex I then remove tweenies for TWIX....

Evaluation advice

Evaluation advice

A rough 'n' ready bit of guidance on evaluation skills for AS economists. I used this in a revision session, but there may be useful bits for you to adapt for your own situations.

Economcis revision using BBC news audio-visual clips

Economcis revision using BBC news audio-visual clips

A selection of BBC news video clips have proved useful in revision with my AS economics students. I have linked to some of them together with a selection of other resources including some data charts. They cover a range of micro and macroeconomic topics. In each case the news clip can be played once or perhaps twice and students have some time to draw from the clips relevant topics, issues or ideas which are then brought together in discussion. In a typical thirty-five minute or forty minute lesson we might use three or four clips.
