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.

The Circular Flow of Income Game

The Circular Flow of Income Game

(0)
A classroom game that demonstrates the circular flow of income. Split your class into households and firms and give them the corresponding worksheet. You need to cut out the slips at the end of the document. There are two rounds to this game. At the start of the first game allocate households factors of production and allocate firms money. The initial allocation of factors of production represents wealth and I divided these unequally between the households but distributed money certificates equally between firms to see who is a better businessman. I did a ratio of two money certificates for every one factor of production so the equilibrium wage should be two (don't let the students know this though). Any unused factors of production represent unemployment and should be taken off households at the end of the game. In the second round change the firms factors of production into goods and services. I did one factor of production equals one goods and services. Ask firms to calculate there profits at the end of the game and find out who were the best business people. Ask the students to draw what they saw in the game. Then ask the students what is missing from the closed economy model.
Public Goods Lesson Activity with Answers

Public Goods Lesson Activity with Answers

(0)
A group activity for AS Economics that gets students to work together to decide whether each of the goods is excludable, rival, non-excludable and non rival. You can then get the students to discuss how we define each of the categories, private good, public good, quasi public good etc. Can also lead to a discussion on how these categorisations may have changed over time. The resource includes the teacher answers and a paper copy that students can cut and stick with. My students all have laptops so I just gave them the powerpoint without the answers and got them to drag and drop the answers.
The Labour Market Wages Lesson Starter - Higher or Lower?

The Labour Market Wages Lesson Starter - Higher or Lower?

(1)
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.
Price Elasticity of Demand Game Starter Higher or Lower?
annadavis23annadavis23

Price Elasticity of Demand Game Starter Higher or Lower?

(0)
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.

Behavioural Economics Worksheet - Worksheet with Teacher Answers and Quantitative Skills Extension

(1)
I use these worksheets at the start of teaching Behavioural Economics, before students have learnt anything about it. 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.
