The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018 is a teaching and learning activity based on the events of last week’s news. There is a crossword on last week’s news events, there are two background/explainer search and cloze puzzles (The Venezuela crisis and Jerusalem), and there is another crossword based on a country mentioned in the news crossword (this week it’s Comoros). What happened in last week’s news? India inaugurated a hydro-electric dam that prompted protests from Pakistan because it affects water flowing into the Indus River. Ebola cases were reported in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and 4000 vaccine doses arrived in Kinshasa. Comoros’ ex-president was arrested on charges relating to selling citizenship. Malaysia’s ex-PM’s residence was raided of bags of cash and jewelry. A mountain lion killed a mountain biker in the US. Hawaii’s volcano erupted, prompting more evacuations. Australia and the US were the only countries to vote against a UN investigation into the Israeli killings of Palestinians in Gaza. The two background/explainer puzzles aim to teach more about ongoing news stories. This week there is an explanation of why Jerusalem is central to the Middle East troubles. There is also an explanation of Venezuela’s economic and human crisis. These puzzles are excellent for driving students’ research skills. When students work in small groups they learn cooperation and team work. They help with concentration and, of course, handwriting. But best of all, these puzzles generate real-world discussions. The students leave the less asking questions like, ‘Why would North Korea even want nuclear weapons and why does the US care?’ ‘Why does China want a military base in the South China Sea?’ ‘Why have some UK supermarkets added a ‘plastic-free’ label on some products?’

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.
