A 25 mark exemplar essay for the AQA Economics syllabus for Year 2, Macroeconomics. Students would not be expected to write this much of course, but I tried to cover a range of ideas, so that they can steal the bits they can relate to the most based on their own understanding, and so they can see lots of different points of analysis in terms of breadth of ideas.
This is an essay checklist which students can use to check they have included all aspects of an essay in order to reach the top level.
Ideal for weaker students to use as a tick list for each essay they write, whilst providing an aid memoire for the most able students.
A bundle of 32 memory challenges covering the AQA Economics specification. Most of them involve 10 key terms being on the board for 30 secs and then students have to remember as many key terms as they can and define them.
A few involve diagram sketching or understanding images relating to behavioural economics, so students get 1 minute and then students have to remember as many key terms/ draw the diagrams as they can.
Students reflect on their confidence/ability to draw the Macro diagrams needed for the new AQA A-Level Economics specification.
I would get my students in groups to come up with as many diagrams as possible themselves, and then issue them this afterwards as an aid memoire.
This is a selection of potential 9 mark questions "with the help of a diagram, explain..." on the topic of economic policies. This has been divided into demand side policies of fiscal and monetary, as well as supply side policies.
I produced this booklet for my L6th tutor group to help them when writing UCAS personal statements. My tutees are primarily interested in applying for Economics, or Economics related undergraduate courses, however, there are other sample personal statements in here too such as Maths, Engineering, Drama and Experimental Psychology.
