Good morning year 11
Advanced Notice
I have invited the amazing Mr Drake to a Wednesday lesson to give you a masterclass on exam technique!  He has been teaching for over 35 years, is the best Economics teacher in oxfordshire and has cosistently improved the results that he achieves every year with the classes he teaches.  Why wouldn't you want some Mr Drake top tips to getting all the marks.

Task
Today's learning outcome is to prepare YOURSELF to write a 250 word article on the benefits of taking private LTD companies onto the London Stock Exchange but before you do this I have a few activities that I think you might wish to do first.

You will revisit the paper one theory first by using the Core Text See pg 21-28 of the AQA core text
  
Then you can develop this knowledge by revisiting paper two theory using the Domestic Bliss case study and work sheets along with the:
  • domestic Bliss worksheet
