A PowerPoint recapping cashflow and introducing students to the concepts of costs, profit and break even. There is a variety of activities building up students knowledge and a range of tasks for them to complete to ensure they understand all aspects of break even. There’s a GCSE style exam question with scaffolding and structure for peer marking.
There is enough content here to cover a few lessons.
A full set of lesson resources and a lesson plan to teach and assess the topic of the Boston Matrix. There is a ‘market place’ activity to teach the topic in an interactive way, an assessment, a PowerPoint and a lesson plan- nice little lesson.
A full lesson resource to teach the topic of remuneration. There is an activity that can be used as a treasure hunt or fact finding activity where the teacher prints and puts up the definitions of each method and the students need to find the information, before discussing in their groups the advantages and disadvantages of each method and recording it on their sheet.
This download includes a PowerPoint, the sheets for the treasure hunt, a worksheet for them to complete and a workbook of tasks. A fun way to teach the topic of remuneration!
A PowerPoint research task that students can complete to understand the concept of sources of finance. There are some introductory slides and then students can work independently to research the sources of finance or students can be assigned one and then can share with the group.
A full set of lesson resources to introduce cash flow. There is a PowerPoint with a range of tasks and peer assessment questions, there’s also a worksheet to calculate the cash flow for Nottingham Forest (the team can easily be changed!). There is an activity where students all take part talking through (or acting out!) a play, and the group record the cash flow activities as the day progresses- my groups really love doing this!
I use this PowerPoint to start every lesson to consolidate students’ knowledge of topics covered. We call it a rapid-fire recap and students are meant to answer the questions in as few words possible (and they get very competitive with each other about this!), It’s a great way to recap topics and gets students to distill key words and concepts into as few words as possible which really helps with revision and recall.
There are dozens of questions here than can be used of sequences of lessons and adapted as needed.
A PowerPoint to teach approaches to quality, including quality assurance and quality control. There is a game where students have to make products using the two approaches to see the advantages and disadvantages of each. There’s also a range of tasks and an introduction to cost effective operations. There’s enough content for 2 or 3 lessons.
My students love this revision activity. Attached is a list of key words for both Y12 (units1-6) and Y13 (7-10) of the A-Level. Our reprographics very kindly printed, laminated and chopped these up so we can use them to play articulate in lesson.
Students play in groups and put all the cards face down and pick a card up at a time, describing the key term using business definitions- the person that guess correctly keeps the card. Each person describes for one minute, whoever has the most at the end is the winner. A nice plenary activity or one for a Friday afternoon to keep students engaged- they can get very competitive- some of my students even asked for their own set so they could play at home!
A PowerPoint introducing students to the product life cycle. There is an activity where students can cut out the products and stick them on a product life cycle, considering what is happening to a business’s costs, revenue and profit at each stage
