I am a passionate business and economics teacher who tries to approach teaching from an interactive style. At times I feel that business and economics can seem a little dry for students and as such they struggle, my resources are designed to spark engagement and make the dull interesting. I am also a Head of Subject with whole school responsibility for teaching and learning and as such I create lots of different activities and documents that are useful for cross curricular working.

Business Education - Embedding Differentiation

Business Education - Embedding Differentiation

A support document to aid the teaching of Business Education subjects with the focus on supporting the lower end whilst improving/stretching/challenging the top end. I collated 8 strategies into this document in order to raise this as a target within the department. I have mapped out how the resources could be use and how this might enable learners to be challenged in the subject. These are by no means the only strategies to use for this but these are some that I felt were easy to embed whilst having the maximum amount of impact on students. The use of these strategies had a significant impact on the department and results improve significantly. I have removed all branding from the school/department. Please feel free to use as you wish.
