EconoME - lesson ideas for teaching decision making
Be prepared for the new term, with ready-made curriculum-linked lesson ideas to help with learning the importance of critical thinking and decision making – look out for the EconoME initiative.
Find this new and improved programme of resources, at The National Schools Partnership. From the Bank of England, and supported by the PHSE Association and Young Money, the lessons include real-world examples and best-practice strategies.
Young people are required to make important decisions throughout their lives, so the FREE set of econoME activities, engaging videos and case studies will be great to use in classrooms. It is ideal for 11-16 year olds.
The programme features a PowerPoint presentation and lesson plan, and covers:
Lesson 1: What influences my decisions? Explore a variety of factors that influence decisions, including the economy.
Lesson 2: How can I make informed decisions? Explore the process of decision-making including the sourcing and analysing of reliable information.
Lesson 3: Why do my decisions matter? Consider the consequences of any decisions your students might make – for themselves, others and the economy.
The econoME classes are well-designed, so they can be taught without previous economics experience, and also with clear curriculum links to programmes of study – PHSE/PSE/Health & Wellbeing/Social Studies/Learning for Life and Work/Thinking, Problem-Solving and Decision-Making, Citizenship, and Economics.
