AQA A-Level Business - Models & Theories Revision

AQA A-Level Business - Models & Theories Revision

This resource is to support students with their understanding of the many models & theories that appear in the new specification AQA A-Level Business course (7132). The resource covers 24 different models/theories which appear on the course which students can complete the key information for. The models have been edited to varying depths to both challenge and support the students. Teaching & Learning Strategies 1. Assign each student in your class 1 or 2 of the models (depending on class size) and they work to become experts on these. Students then teach each other the models. 2. Print & cut out each of the models, students then can go into more depth on the reverse of the model about possible advantages/disadvantages. 3. Print & cut out each of the models to create a fun revision game. On the reverse of each of the models students come up with three words to describe the model/theory. Then play a game of guess the model based on the three word descriptions. It would be advised that this resource is printed to A3 to maximise its use. I hope you find this resource helpful. Thanks!

A-Level Business Connections Revision Activity

A-Level Business Connections Revision Activity

A great class activity to help students make connections between the many topics in AQA A-Level Business (7132) and also develop their skill of application. This resource contains 48 Topics/Concepts 32 Businesses 16 Connective Words Print the resource & cut out into individual card and create three draw piles (Topics, Businesses & Connectives). The activity can then be run in a number of different ways depending on the level of challenge you wish to set or the amount of time you have for the activity. The simple format would be to draw 3 topic cards, 2 connective cards & 1 business card. The challenge would be for students to create a paragraph (verbally or written) which would use all of the cards. This can be changed up in a number of ways: - More/fewer cards used - Each student draws their own set - Same topics & connectives but every student gets a different business I hope you find this resource helpful Thanks Ben
