EBE NSW Professional Development Event - Economic Skills in the HSC Economics Course

Date: Wednesday 12 February 2020
Time: 4.15pm - 7.40pm
Venue: Professional Teachers’ Council NSW, 67 – 73 St. Hilliers Road, Auburn NSW 2144

The HSC Economics course includes a range of mathematical and graphing skills that students (and teachers!) often struggle with. While some of these skills are prescribed in the syllabus, others are not directly mentioned but still appear in HSC examinations. This workshop is a crash course for teachers on the skills they need to teach their Year 12 Economics students. It is ideal for new teachers of economics, or any teachers who want to refresh or refine their knowledge. The session will include explanations of each skill, modelled application of the skills, examples from HSC exams, suggested teaching strategies, and time for you to practice the skills you have learnt.
