Trumponomics Two Years In!

Trumponomics Two Years In!

Be sure to get some sleep-in tonight because Tuesday night promises to be a long and eventful one over in the US of A!

The results of the US mid-term elections – US general elections held every four years to decide upon the legislative structure surrounding the incumbent administration - are expected to come in overnight. The mid-term results are hotly anticipated as they are likely to form the first tangible evidence of sentiment and opinion on the progress made by Donald Trump’s administration half-way into his first term of office i.e. has Trumponomics really worked?

Something to engage and inspire your economists

b2ap3_thumbnail_Slide1.png

 

This article and videos are great material for young economists. Loved watching the video and reading the article on Sky News this morning.

Historical context, some good explanations, several connections to the real economy and some interesting thoughts on what happens to US interest rates, what the consequences might be and why current policy tools might not dig us out of another financial crisis.

For more detail on the technicalities of banks and coverage of the 2008 crisis please feel free to use and share:

Financial crisis recap video

Banks and financial institutions recap video

2017 CPD presentation - free slide pack

Don't forget:

  1. You won't learn much via passive video viewing i.e. just watching a video
  2. Take your time, make notes and turn your time into an active viewing event.
  3. When you think you understand it then test yourself via our assessments
  4. Read the feedback when you get questions wrong as "feedback is the food of champions"

Micro Questions Upgrade

Micro Questions Upgrade

Following the upgrade to our macro questions back at Christmas, we are excited to be upgrading all of our micro questions as well!

As time has passed since we first launched the EzyEconomics courses, we have developed our functionality. In particular, we have created our own question functionality which allows us a lot of flexibility to ask different question formats. It also makes questions prettier and clearer for students to understand.

Towards the end of August, we will publish all of these new-format questions.

What does this mean for our learning data?

All previous assessment outcomes will be retained. This means that reports like the Gradebook will be unaffected. Students will notice no difference to their data.

However, some of the more advanced reports available to teachers, including student learning analysis, will not contain data for attempts at the 'old-format' questions. All attempts from the end of August onwards at these new questions will be recorded. If you have any questions about this, please get in contact with us!

A huge thank you to all of the schools who have supported us thus far. We are looking forward to yet another record-breaking year of usage within EzyEconomics and the production and release of ever more (and ever better) resources!

Best wishes,

The EzyEconomics Team

How can I improve the outcomes my students achieve next year?

This is the time of the year when there is time to think ahead. In order to think about how to do better next year a good idea might be to focus on what you are trying to achieve. If the objective is to improve performance against target grade it is worth reflecting on just how this might be achieved.

Economics Year 13 revision Day 29 - Development Economics

Economics Year 13 revision Day 29 - Development Economics

On day 29 of the Year 13 Recap we review the field of macroeconomics titled development economics.

Development economics is a branch of economics established to evaluate the link between growth and development.
