Business Studies Literacy 'Mats'

Business Studies Literacy 'Mats'

(0)
This resource includes 4 different ‘mats’ which can be printed and stuck to desks or kept in student folders. They are designed for students to refer to to help with spelling of key words, constructing sentences and developing extended responses to meet the requirements of the Business Studies assessment objectives. I usually laminate two mats together and my students keep them in their folders. They are encouraged to refer to them if they are struggling, but I also use them as a learning tool. Numeracy mats are also available.

A quiz about Welsh Businesses for St David's Day!

A quiz about Welsh Businesses for St David's Day!

(0)
Created for St David's Day, but it could be used year round. Give students the list of definitions - they are to try to identfy the businesses - I let them use the internet if they were struggling for themselves. It is based on the most up to date info I could find, so it will need to be reviewed. After the students had identified the businesses we talked about how important they are to the welsh economy as a whole, and the local economy where they are based - numbers employed etc..
