Economics before A-Level




On the agenda for May's EconEdChat were 3 questions:

  1. What do Economics teachers need to know about the Discover Economics campaign?

  2. How do we ensure students get practice using data and what data sources are useful?

  3. What experience or knowledge do we want students to arrive with at the start of Economics A-Level?


This post focuses on the second question, you can first question here. We were lucky enough to be joined by Professor Sarah Smith, Head of the School of Economics at Bristol, and Co-Chair of Discover Economics.
