Commerce, Economics and Business

Making literacy easy in Commerce, Economics and Business

Students need to be able to

  • interpret, analyse and communicate business and economic information, concepts and ideas
  • analyse and interpret economics and business data and apply reasoning to a range of situations, contemporary issues, events and case studies
  • explain the influences on consumers, governments, businesses and economies, and the impacts of decision making
  • develop and express an informed point of view based on data and reasons
  • make conclusions and recommendations on economics and business issues.

Here’s what teachers have to say:

Writing for Success in Business Studies by Trish Weekes came highly recommended by a number of teachers via a Facebook group. Each Module has enlightened my class as to what is required to write successfully in Business Studies. The modules contain consistent messages/advice to which the students quickly become familiar. I have incorporated the modules into our curriculum and have used peer and teacher feedback to improve student’s writing. This is made possible by having a Teacher Resource booklet that provides great sample answers that are clear and easily understood by the students. I highly recommend Writing for Success in Business Studies.

Anna Smith, HSIE teacher, Chevalier College

‘I’m really impressed with the quality of the content, the user-friendliness of the resources and the way they are constructed. They are easy to read, clear, and succinct. I have been using them for a month and I can already see the difference.’
Debbie Ernst, Meridan State College

‘I bought the Business Studies and Commerce books – they are fabulous.’
Sue Spinner, Mudgee High School

‘One of the biggest challenges we face as Business Studies teachers is being able to help our students understand the language of business and write like business experts. These skills are vital for success both in the HSC and the real world of business. If you only ever buy one Business Studies resource, make it this one. It will change the way you teach this subject.’
Andrew Athavle, Former HSC Supervisor of Marking,
William Carey Christian School
