I have taught A Level Economics at a range of schools using different pedagogical techniques. I want to make my lessons as interesting and engaging as possible and so create all my own content from scratch, which I am keen to share with you. I try to push boundaries, be creative in my approach and give students a learning experience that goes beyond simply passing their exams.

Price Elasticity of Demand Game Starter Higher or Lower?

Price Elasticity of Demand Game Starter Higher or Lower?

A fun game or starter that gets students to apply their knowledge of price elasticity of demand. Students are shown a good and given its elasticity. They are next shown another good and have to guess whether the next goods elasticity will be higher or lower. This sparks a discussion of whether a good is likely to be price elastic or inelastic and how elastic or inelastic it will be. This can be done either as a whole class activity or in two smaller groups as there are two sets of questions. For each set there are 10 goods which range in difficulty.

They complete the 'How rational are you?' worksheet and later in the course once they have learnt about the topic they will review their answers and see where they were affected by cognitive biases. This session opens up much discussion and includes teacher answers and a quantitative skills extension task using data from the class.

The Labour Market Wages Lesson Starter - Higher or Lower?

The Labour Market Wages Lesson Starter - Higher or Lower?

After the success of my first higher or lower game I thought I would make a second one for the labour market which often is a dull topic. Students must use their knowledge to decide whether the next occupation will have higher or lower wages than the previous job. They can then be asked to explain their reasoning by drawing on concepts such as MRP, wage elasticity and non-pecuniary benefits. There are two sets of 10 occupations so the students can be divided into two groups and compete against one another.
