Understanding the European Union (EU)

Understanding the European Union (EU)

A short PowerPoint presentation that can be used for one lesson and is mainly useful for providing a background on the European Union. It can help provide students an overview of why the EU was created and it explains the treaties that are significant for the functioning of the EU. It also includes a few engaging activities that will help students understand the content of the presentation. This presentation works great along with a presentation I made on Brexit, that can be found on the following link: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/brexit-examining-the-economic-and-political-aspects-11686242. The presentation addresses the following learning outcomes: Identify the formal structure of the EU; Recall several treaties relevant to the formation of the EU; Understand relevant trends to the further evolution of the EU; Identify key areas of cooperation for EU member-states; Identify key concerns in the further development of the EU.

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. There are THREE more FREE crosswords based on cities and countries around the world. The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a great activity for supporting literacy, logic, and research skills. It quietly helps students with handwriting issues and it sneakily encourages students to learn more about their word and to discuss why... Why? Why did the UN impose more sanctions on North Korea? Why did Russia suggest UN peacekeepers for Crimea? Why are Australian landowners encouraging Australians to eat kangaroos? And why is Amsterdam's government wanting to discourage tourism? These are just some of the discussions that will pop out of this week's crossword. Or maybe they'll ask where? Where is Lahore? Sri Lanka? New Zealand? South Africa? Myanmar? North Korea? Paris? Barcelona? Crimea? It's a pdf so it can be downloaded quickly, saved to a flash drive, opened and printed quickly for use at a moment's notice.

Economics: A-Level Lesson - The Phillips Curve & Policy Conflicts (+ worksheet)

Economics: A-Level Lesson - The Phillips Curve & Policy Conflicts (+ worksheet)

This presentation contains a whole lesson! Specifically this lesson is for teaching about the Phillips Curve, the theory behind it, lots of graphs and data and some of its complications and criticisms, including alternative views such as the Nairu. The lesson briefly looks at other policy conflicts. The lesson alongside some excellent teaching slides includes a handout giving a detailed look at all major opinions on the Phillips Curve as well as an excellent worksheet to consolidate and test learning. This lesson goes particularly well with the other lessons that I teach on economic policies. 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 excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Economics: Lesson 63 - Economic Growth or Economic Welfare ( HDI / GPI )

This presentation contains a whole lesson! Specifically this lesson is for teaching about other indexes such as HDI and GPI to judge and analyse economic development outside of just looking at GDP figures. This lesson really builds on the previous lessons on economic growth to give an excellent overall picture. I highly recommend getting this lesson as a sequence of lessons that is available as a bundle. 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.

Economics: A-Level lesson - the Laffer curve and Tax Incidence (+ resources)

Economics: A-Level lesson - the Laffer curve and Tax Incidence (+ resources)

This presentation contains a whole lesson! Specifically this lesson is for teaching about taxation and the theory of the Laffer curve, with a lot at the theory as well as the historical evidence about its effectiveness in real life. It details a look at the substitution and income effects. The lesson also looks at tax incidence of indirect taxation, which includes a handout. The lesson has an excellent multiple choice question with student answers. This doesn't sound like a lot, however, it does raise some excellent questions and debate. This will help consolidate learning from the lesson as well as reminding students NOT to forget what they have learnt previously!! This lesson comes after 3 prior lessons on taxation that are also available in my shop and I highly recommend that you buy them as a series of lessons. 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.

The World News Crossword - September 10th, 2017

The World News Crossword - September 10th, 2017

The World News Crossword - September 10th, 2017 is a pdf containing a crossword based on the events in last week's news. There are three more BONUS crosswords based on world geography that can be used at any time - substitute lessons, homework activities, time-out sessions, staff meetings (yes, really). Crosswords are good for encouraging neat handwriting and literacy. These crosswords are good for encouraging research on current world events. More than that, these crosswords will encourage discussions about the stories behind the news events, for example... almost 30,000 weapons were handed in in Australia during an amnesty. A German gun manufacturer promised not to sell weapons into war zones and to corrupt governments. And the UK arms manufacturers reported record profits from soaring sales. The UK government condemned North Korea's missile programme. Irma, Kim Jong-un, and Aung San Suu Kyi... Why was so much news time devoted to a hurricane when an entire ethnic group were being persecuted by the Myanmar military? Previously extinct tigers in Kazakhstan, plastic in the ocean and now in the food chain, and three mega-hurricanes. Are these related? Six farmers in the Amazon were murdered by gangs who want to steal the land to farm palm oil. What's palm oil used for? An artist who donated some of (but not all?) of his prize money because the competition was sponsored by BP (er, why did he enter?) Bad behaviour by German football fans in Prague and 50,000 people protested in London against Brexit.
