Teaching economics and business

Carly Sawatzki

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the potential for economics and business as a learning area in the Australian Curriculum. This chapter argues that, via its links to the Melbourne Declaration, economics and business has a vital role to play in equipping students with the attitudes, values, knowledge and skills that are key to Australia’s future social and economic prosperity. The Economics and Business strand make a major contribution to filling the need for students to be economically literate, responsible, financially savvy and ‘job ready’ so as to participate in the economy as
active and informed global citizens.
