How can the government boost economic growth?

How can the government boost economic growth?

This is an activity based lesson where the students break into groups of 4 to form a new government. There are four roles: Prime minister, chancellor, minister for business and home secretary. They work through a series of scenarios and have to argue their position. For each scenario, each person receives a "briefing" letter from their dept that outlines their position. They have 5 minutes to discuss within the group and then the prime minister needs to record their decision on the worksheet and justify it to their electorate. At the end of each scenario I get the prime minister in each group to stand up and justify their position to the rest of the class. They then see if their decision paid off on the powerpoint. The scenarios cover interest rate cuts & rises, investment in human capital, tax cuts and infrastructure spending.

Price Elasticity of Demand

Price Elasticity of Demand

A powerpoint presentation and lesson plan on Price Elasticity of demand, how it is calculated and why it is important. With timers on several slides, it is a practical and innovative approach to illustrating the concept using rubber bands and erasers - these help to explain it like never before and make for novelty gifts at the end of the lesson! The method is thoroughly explained in the lesson plan with additional slides that can be used for differentiation.

Economics: Lesson 17 - Production Possibility Frontiers / Curves (+ worksheet)

Economics: Lesson 17 - Production Possibility Frontiers / Curves (+ worksheet)

This presentation contains a whole lesson! UPDATED Specifically, this lesson is for teaching ... PPF / PPC with diagrams, explanations etc.. 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 key words 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 well. All the teaching presentations, include starters and plenaries, normally a quick discussion, but sometimes something else. All the additional worksheets etc... that are prompted in the presentations should be located in the free section under handouts. If you struggle to find a handout that is obviously part of the lesson, then please ask and I can get it uploaded again or emailed across directly. Note: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.
