Content of Teaching for respective chapters in JC Economics

Our Academic Team of Economics Focus have displayed what we will cover in our lessons for the respective chapters and it will be a productive way for JC students to understand what they need to prepare for examination. However, the content of teaching just covers a minimum spectrum of study. Being dedicated and professional, we pride to do more for our students and thus, we do cover a wider range of preparation in our regular Economics Tuition than what is listed here. However, this content of teaching will be helpful for JC students to do their revision and we hope to be of great help to all.

Except for chapters 1 and 2, all chapters have a listed content of teaching and stated questions for class activities. We have listed a commentary box for JC students to list their questions for clarification and commentary on economics issue we would like to share for discussion.

We hope that our efforts to provide a more structural content of learning will be of great help to JC students and tutors to help students to excel for A level examination. For further clarification, please call Simon at 9689 0510.

Chapter 1 – Introduction to Economics

In this chapter, JC students will get an idea on what is Economics and this is helpful in giving them a start on the understanding on what Economics does for our society and areas of significance. We want students to explore more and see how Economics can be of great help to the individuals and our society.

Chapter 2.1 – Introduction to Microeconomics

In this chapter, we highlight a brief understanding of the main areas of concern and how the different economic entities in the economy conduct their economic activities to maximize their gains.

Chapter 2.2 – Central Problem of Economics

The coverage in this chapter is divided into three main sections, namely Economic Principles I and II and Three Economic Systems. For the past few years of GCE A level examination, the section of teaching on concept of opportunity cost and production possibility curve have been tested and it has become a stumbling block for some students due to their lack of preparation for this chapter. Other areas of teaching includes the problem of scarcity, resource allocation and three economic systems.

Nurture Skills, Enrich Knowledge

Our tuition programmes focus on the development of students’ application and writing skills and the enrichment of their economics knowledge with our teaching activities like topical teaching with focus on how to apply economics knowledge, class discussion on current economics issues and a variety of questions that are often tested in examinations, class practices of CSQs and essay writing to train the students’ capacity to adapt to the examination constraints. Besides knowledge enrichment, we focus on skills development with our in-house designed Case Study Skills Answering Techniques and Essay Writing Skills Development Workshops which are very apt in helping JC students reduce their loss of marks or get more marks in their answers as these are effective way in answering the questions.

1. Consistency and Persistence wins the day

During the regular tuition, in-depth teaching content knowledge and application techniques on the use of knowledge will be taught along with extensive class practices and discussion. Students will be taught and tested on a great variety of questions which have proven to be effective for students to comprehend unusual questions as the actual GCE A level examination is now focusing on more obscure and commonly less significant sections of study.

2. Last minute preparation, Have no fear

For the intensive revision, there will be summary topical teachings and integrated questions that will be taught and discussed. Although class practices are conducted, it will be less extensive. Students who have attended regular tuition will be charged less than their regular tuition while those who have just joined the intensive revision. Skills Development lessons on essay writing and case study answering techniques are also taught to intensify the exam-oriented capacity of the students. These Intensive Revision Workshops have proven to be great help to students who have not prepared for the examination as our programme is structured and organized with extensive materials to ease the stress of the last minute preparation. However, it is my sincere advice to start preparation as early as possible.

3. The key to Success – A good set of notes

Having a good set of notes is important as it will make your learning journey easy and productive and the route to Grade A will be a fruitful path. Our set of notes encompasses Topical Teaching materials which consist of explanation of the economic principles and process of economic activities, evaluation points and graphical illustration and explanation. Sample and Model Essays for class discussion and practices (given as guided essay for students to reflect on their errors), Case Study Practices with answer given for every questions to help students understand their errors and Summarized Quick Notes for last minute recalling and revision (very effective pointers).

4. Be the independent and keen learner

On top of this, students will also be taught and guided on how to make extra notes on their own to help them improve their writings and diagram and description and adjustment to complexity and variation of questions. It is my belief that students must develop independent learning and thinking during this learning journey and my emphasis in our tuition programme to nurture their application skills in their thinking and improve their writing skills through personal reflection.
