Brand new activity designed for my A Level Business class for revision but also would work for skill building at end of year 1: 52 contexts (slips/boxes) and 32 Slides of the main theory/contexts in the Year 1 of the AQA specification (one theory per slide) on each slide students are asked to identify two contexts - one that could be useful / important / an issue for and one less so... they then need to explain why - so building contextualised analysis skills for short answers and compare and contrast judgment skills for essays. 52 compare and contrast contexts are thought of - which can be cut out so students can have a kinaesthetic activity or printed onto one A3 sheet of paper for quicker identification. fully editable revision or skills building resource
