A course book to help you succeed as an economics teacher, self-published by Chan Siew Fong, an experienced economics education lecturer who has taught in HSSE for several years.

This book deals with the “how to’s” and “wherefores” of developing the economic mindset in students that run the gamut from disciplinarity, curriculum design, students’ learning styles, lesson planning and teaching strategies to crafting assessments, with opportunities to reflect on the impact on learning of teacher beliefs and teaching practices. Also loaded with teaching strategies, examples, ideas and suggestions for engaging students, culled from years of teaching experience.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."
