Economics A-Level Taster sessions

Last year, I collected some ideas about Economics taster sessions here. Tomorrow, I have a session with some of Year 10 'academic scholars' to introduce them to Economics, and I wanted to come up with something different because:

  • It's a short session - about 30 mins and I don't want it to feel rushed, as I know the students in this group are quite curious so likely to ask lots of questions!

  • Those who select Econ will do 2x1hr sessions in the summer before Year 12, so I don't want it to be repetitive for them

  • I'm aware that students won't have selected their A-Level options yet, so this might be an opportunity to raise awareness of non-financy/businessy side of the subject to those who might have misconceptions, thus potentially attract students from underrepresented groups

As a result, I've gone with MRU's efficiency vs fairness activity which you can check out here along with the Choose Economics images. My PowerPoint isn't anything special, but I've attached it below
