Topical Teaching


Organise your study of Economics

Topical Teaching is a fundamental process for every student because it sets an important platform for content enrichment. With accordance to the chapters tested at the A Level examination, students will study economic concepts which is structured to the exam requirements. Our lessons are organised into separate chapters – topical teaching – to ease the consolidation of economic knowledge. Each topical teaching segment offers distinctive features that will help students to strengthen their conceptual understanding of Economics. For example, during each lesson, students will learn various economic definitions and other key terms that are required to explain certain economic conditions.

    1. Organize your study of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics chapters

      Given the broad and in-depth content of Economics, it may be perceived as an uphill task to remember and comprehend the content. This necessitates a need to separate the content into specific chapters to help you to compartmentalise Economics knowledge before shifting towards a more exam-driven preparation. Such approach aims to cover the various chapters separately to promote an ease of understanding in you.

 

    1. Identify and explain the economic definitions

      As part of the examination requirement, you are expected to include key terms that will support your answers. These economic terms are important as they hold significance in the explanation and interpretation of economic issues. Therefore, every topical teaching lesson will feature a list of economic definitions which you will learn to explain the meaning of these terms concisely.

    1. Understand economic mechanisms and concepts

      Following the comprehension of economic terms, you should learn to explain the economic concepts and impacts. Our topical teaching lessons will guide you through the comprehension process by engaging in class discussions. You will explore the underlying determinants and factors that give rise to the economic conditions and learn to arrange the explanations into structured paragraphs.

 

    1. Develop analytical thinking skills

      To apply your knowledge of Economics to questions, it is also important for you to develop an analytical mind. This means that you are expected to approach economic issues from multiple perspectives and observe the interaction of factors based on the given circumstances. For example, you will learn to evaluate the effectiveness of macroeconomic policies in reducing unemployment in a small and open economy, like Singapore. The evaluation process requires an understanding of the policy mechanism and its implications.

 

  1. Integrate your knowledge for exam questions

    Once you have attained a basic understanding of Economics and its relevant concepts, you should integrate your knowledge from various chapters to tackle examination questions. This consolidation of knowledge should not be ignored as it reinforces conceptual understanding and adapts your knowledge of independent chapters to examination questions. Most importantly, the process of knowledge integration is achieved through extensive practice, rather than mere reading. As such, our class activities will feature practice sessions to assess your understanding of economic issues and concepts.
