The A Level Economics Student Textbook and Revision Guide: Macroeconomics

The A Level Economics Student Textbook and Revision Guide: Macroeconomics

The A Level Economics Student Textbook and Revision Guide: Macroeconomics is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work to create the perfect classroom and revision resource for the new A Level Economics courses. Carefully crafted by a former student, the Guide has been designed with a plethora of features to help OCR, AQA and Edexcel A students achieve the top grades. Model Explanations: To ensure quality over quantity, theGuide has made a painstaking effort to explain economic concepts with concision while including all the key points. Current Examples: The Guide uses current and topical examples to illustrate economic concepts and help students apply them to the real world. Furthermore, model explanations have been structured to allow students and teachers to easily substitute their own examples in place of those already given. Digital Diagrams: The Guide includes every relevant diagram for A Level Economics, which have been digitally-drawn clearly and simply to provide an authoritative resource for students and teachers alike. Benefits, Drawbacks and Evaluation: From the different macroeconomics indicators to the various types of protectionism, the Guide has summarised the most important benefits, drawbacks and evaluative points in a straightforward table layout. Written According to Spec: The Guide is 100% compatible with the OCR course, 94% compatible with the AQA course and 98% compatible with the Edexcel A course. Due to the small differences between the courses, the Guide could never meet the exact requirements for all three A Level Economics specifications, but it nevertheless covers all the main points for both AQA and Edexcel A. Innovative Design: The Guide is the first of its kind to offer all three specifications with page numbers and subtitle codes to help students and teachers find the relevant content throughout the book.

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.
