econoME : decisions matter
Young people will be required to make important decisions throughout their lives and the Bank of England‘s free econoME education programme provides students aged 11-16 with the analytical skills to make informed decisions, that will benefit themselves and the world around them.
Using real-world examples and best practice strategies from the Bank of England, econoME will help your students to understand how their decisions are affected by, and influence, the economy, through the use of interactive activities, captivating videos and informative case studies.
Using the Bank of England’s expertise, experience and management of the UK’s economy, your students will learn the importance of critical thinking and forward planning in decision-making, through three engaging and curriculum-linked lessons.
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 resources are designed to have clear links to the curriculum programmes of study in PSHE/PSE/Health & Wellbeing/Social Studies/Learning for Life and Work/Thinking, Problem-Solving and Decision-Making, Citizenship, and Economics.
Each engaging lesson in the econoME education programme is ready-to-go, without any additional preparation. They can be taught without any previous economics training with our easy-to-use classroom PowerPoint presentation, a lesson plan, student activity sheets and an engaging video with thoughts directly from those that make decisions at the Bank of England.
