Drucker in Business Studies
This fully photocopiable manual takes the work of the recently deceased Peter Drucker and by the careful use of extracts (fully referenced) shows how Drucker’s work is required reading for all Business Studies pupils. Topic areas are examined at GCSE, AS and A2 level.
End of Your First Year GCSE
You’ve nearly completed your first year of teaching Business Studies. If only things had been a bit different…if you’d had this book and these lesson plans…but now you can – and all the material here is current as at August 2003. Exhilarating lesson plans for the dynamic teacher for 2003/4.
Football in Business
This fully-photocopiable manual is a resource whereby football may be used to deliver various aspects of A2 Business Studies.
The format is straightforward. A football quotation (or several) is stated together with a possible topic area. Some sample questions are asked – the aim being to stimulate discussion. At the bottom of each page is a quotation for teachers. This may be used for classroom discussion or simply for you to think about.
Extracts from various ‘football management’ books are also included – together with ideas for ‘typical areas’.
Plenty of space is left for teachers to devise lesson plans based on the quotations or to add other areas where the quotations may be applied
GCSE Business Mind Maps II
This manual is presented as a ‘workbook’ i.e. the maps included are to be added to, modified, summarised, expanded as well as analysed, discussed and incorporated. The approach is to take a simplified Mind Map and then look at ways of improving it or adapting to the topic being covered in class.
In this way the maps are a beginning, not an end; they are a catalyst to class discussion.
GCSE Business Mind Maps III
This manual differs significantly from other Mind Maps For a start, this manual is not ‘just’ mind maps! Also included are scores of ‘new’ words used in Business Studies. Most of them will not be in text books. They have been included here to allow pupils to research the true meaning. This is to encourage research and interest. Yes, in later years, these words/phrases may be in mainstream textbooks – so GCSE pupils will be ahead of the field.
Now, the Mind Maps.
The early pages of this manual give detailed Mind Maps in a series of stages i.e., from the very beginning to the final conclusion. These final Mind Maps have borders round the branches to illustrate that the topic is finished – but, of course, given the subject Business Studies is, you may care to add on extra ideas. In later sections, the Mind Maps provide less and less guidance. Instead questions are asked – which makes the Maps ideal for discussion in class. The whole point of this manual is to encourage discussion and, by using Mind Maps, allow for participation and learning.
