As a new school year approaches, Economics teachers around the world are looking for the latest, greatest resources to enrich their students’ experiences in the classroom. Welker’s Wikinomics has been offering such resources to students and teachers since 2007, including the Video Lectures available on the Econclassroom.com site, hundreds of categorized blog posts on Economics in Plain English, an IB-focused textbook, Revision Guides, PowerPoints, and now, after years of requests from teachers, a comprehensive set of Practice Activities complete with Answer Keys covering topics from Micro, Macro and International Economics.
Order a complete set today, or try the activities one unit at a time. It’s up to you. These activities have been developed, refined, and revised for years in my own classes. The answer keys offer in depth responses from a “teacher’s perspective” to help students reflect on their own knowledge of Economics. Also included are a handful of “research activities”, which guide students through online research projects. These do not include answer keys.
All in all there are over 60 activities covering nearly every topic in the IB and AP course. Order a set today so you can be ready to introduce activity 1.0 on the first day of class later this month!
