1 Economics Course Outline 2014/2015

2 Course Description NATURE OF THE SUBJECT Economics is a dynamic social science, forming part of the study of individuals and societies. The study of economics is essentially about the concept of scarcity and the problem of resource allocation. Although economics involves the formulation of theory, it is not a purely theoretical subject: economic theories can be applied to real- world examples. As a social science, economics uses scientific methodologies that include quantitative and qualitative elements and relate to many other fields of study. The IB Diploma Programme economics course emphasizes the economic theories of microeconomics, which deal with economic variables affecting individuals, firms and markets, and the economic theories of macroeconomics, which deal with economic variables affecting countries, governments and societies. These economic theories are not to be studied in a vacuum rather, they are to be applied to real- world issues. Prominent among these issues are fluctuations in economic activity, international trade, economic development and environmental sustainability. The ethical dimensions involved in the application of economic theories and policies permeate throughout the economics course as students are required to consider and reflect on human end- goals and values. The economics course encourages students to develop international perspectives, fosters a concern for global issues, and raises students awareness of their own responsibilities at a local, national and international level. The course also seeks to develop values and attitudes that will enable students to achieve a degree of personal commitment in trying to resolve these issues, appreciating our shared responsibility as citizens of an increasingly interdependent world. Economics and prior learning No particular background in terms of specific subjects studied for national or international qualifications is expected or required and no prior knowledge of economics is necessary for students to undertake a course of study based on this specification. However, a familiarity with economic concepts would be an advantage. Aims and Objectives Aims The aims of the economics course at higher level and standard level are to: provide students with a core knowledge of economics encourage students to think critically about economics promote an awareness and understanding of internationalism in economics encourage students' development as independent learners enable students to distinguish between positive and normative economics enable students to recognize their own tendencies for bias. The overall aim of the course is to give students a deeper understanding of the nature and scope of economics. The different parts of the course are designed to complement each other enabling students to develop a range of fundamental economic skills.

3 Objectives Having followed the Diploma Programme course in economics, candidates will be expected to: 1. have an understanding and knowledge of economic concepts and theories 2. apply economic theory to a range of circumstances and a variety of situations 3. analyse information through the use of economic concepts and theories 4. evaluate concepts and theories from different economic perspectives How the course addresses: International Mindedness Internationalism can be defined as the ideal or practice of cooperation and understanding among countries. Economics has an important role to play in promoting such international cooperation and mutual understanding because of its focus on global issues. Students are taught to understand the impact of economics can both improve cooperation and understanding between countries and, unfortunately, cause extensive damage. Trade agreements, trading bloc, international aids and development projects are some of the key topics in this course where students learn about real international issues especially in trade, development and sustainability. If all participants in the global economy are to achieve a better quality of life for their populations, there must be economic cooperation between all countries. This does not mean that developed countries must control the destinies of less- developed countries. Instead, it means sharing concepts across cultures, against a background of economic awareness. To achieve this understanding, students will be taught to consider economic theories, ideas and happenings from the points of view of different individuals, nations and cultures in the world economy. Although complete knowledge is impossible, students can search for understanding through a wide range of different aspects of the global economy. Students are given individual research and write a case study of a developing country or countries Their search may inspire a lifelong interest in the promotion of international understanding. The Extended Essay Theory of Knowledge

4 Learner Profile IB Programmes aim to develop internationally minded people who display a range of personal qualities. Economics students develop and demonstrate the Learner Profile in the following ways: Inquirers - Students develop their natural curiosity. They acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning in selecting and researching their own topic for the Extended Essay. Students actively enjoy learning and this love of learning is supported in class discussions, debates and projects. Knowledgeable Students explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance and given news duty to broadcast to the class each week. In so doing, they acquire in- depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines. Thinkers Students exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex problems, and make reasoned, ethical decisions especially in building their IA Portfolio. Communicators Students understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication such as power point presentation, class debate and oral presentation. They work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others. Principled - Students act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. Students will practice academic honesty by citing research sources and acknowledge the work of others. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them. Open- minded Students will respond appreciatively and respectfully when they are a part of a working group respect the dignity and equality of those around them irrespective of cultures and belief systems. Students are open to ideas of others and willing to go beyond their own realm of experience and enter into unfamiliar ground to explore new ideas, new roles and new cultures without prejudice. Caring Students show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. They have a personal commitment to service which focus on giving and service to others in completing their CAS programme. Risk- takers - Students approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainty with courage and forethought, and have the independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They are brave and articulate in defending their beliefs. Students are keen to try new ideas or explore the unfamiliar to challenge themselves. Balanced Students understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well- being for themselves and others. Students of economics understand how to empathise and see things from alternative viewpoints and developed a balanced approach to problem solving. Reflective Students give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. They are able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development and to ask questions to help them move forward in their development..

Internal assessment details SL and HL Portfolio Duration: 20 hours Weighting: 20% Rationale Internal assessment in economics enables students to demonstrate the application of their knowledge and understanding of economic theory to real- world situations. Requirements Both SL and HL economics students produce a portfolio of three commentaries based on articles from published news media. Each article must be based on a different section of the syllabus (microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics and development economics). Final submission of portfolio (two copies) is in Students are expected to hand- in their internal assessments at 8.40 am on the due date. Students who hand in their assessments after the due date, without any prior notice or reasonable explanation (see below), will be at risk of not gaining the diploma. The following documentations are accepted as part of reasonable explanation: Medical Certificate issued on the due date of assessment Other documents that are outlined in School Policy(s). The following documentations are accepted as part of prior notice : Official Form signed by subject teacher and the Head of Department for official school activity ONE week prior to the internal assessment.

10 Any other document/s that are outlined in School Policy(s). If students are unable to hand in the internal assessments due to self interest leave (such as holiday leave), then they must hand in their internal assessment prior to their departure otherwise they will fail the subject. There is no re- assessment opportunity for the Internal Assessment. Assessment Setter/s must fill in the Internal Assessment cover sheet and any other required documentation/s once internal assessments are marked, and moderated by moderator/s. The school is required to keep your internal assessment projects. This is for auditing of the results, should that be deemed necessary. You are advised to keep a hard copy yourself. School policies apply regarding disputes of any internal assessment results. The school s IB Examination Policies and Procedures, overseen by Mrs Buist, will apply to all Economics assessment situations. Articles The articles may be from a newspaper, a journal or the internet, but must not be from television or radio broadcasts. If a student includes a relatively lengthy article, which is very much discouraged, the student must highlight the section(s) of the article upon which the commentary is based. The article on which the commentary is based should, where possible, be in the same language as the commentary. If an extract in another language is used, the student must provide an accurate translation of the whole article. Students must also include the original article in their portfolio. Individual work Students must select their own articles to discuss. It may happen that more than one student bases his or her commentary on the same article, but the article must not be given to the class by the teacher, and the production of the commentary must be each student s individual work. A commentary must not be prepared collaboratively. Focus Each commentary must: explain the linkages between the article and economic theory taken from the section of the syllabus on which the article is based demonstrate economic insights into the implications of the article (that is, it should provide evidence of the student s ability to discuss current events from the point of view of an economist). On each commentary students must record: the title of the article the source of the article (including date of access to the site if from the internet) the date the article was published the date the commentary was written the word count of the commentary the section of the syllabus to which the article relates. Each commentary in the portfolio is assessed individually against the internal assessment criteria. The teacher will initially assess each student s work. Please note that internal standardization must take place when more than one teacher is assessing. A sample of the work will then be moderated by the IB moderator. Rubric requirements If students do not adhere to the following requirements, they can lose marks under criterion F: Rubric requirements. 1. Word limit Students must produce a portfolio of three commentaries. Each commentary must not exceed 750 words.

11 Note: Moderators will not read beyond 750 words for each commentary. The following are not included in the word count. Acknowledgments Contents page Diagrams Labels of five words or fewer Headings on diagrams of 10 words or fewer Tables of statistical data Equations, formulae and calculations Citations (which, if used, must be in the body of the commentary) References (which, if used, must be in the footnotes/endnotes) Please note that footnotes/endnotes may be used for references only. Definitions of economic terms and quotations, if used, must be in the body of the work and are included in the word count. Please note that a citation is a shorthand method of making a reference in the body of the commentary, which is then linked to the full reference in the footnotes/endnotes. 2. Articles Each article must be based on a different section of the syllabus. 3. Sources Students must use a different source for each commentary. 4. Contemporary articles Students need to look for articles relating to current events and these must be published no earlier than one year before the writing of the commentary. 5. Contents Each portfolio must contain: a summary portfolio coversheet a commentary coversheet for each commentary three commentaries, accompanied in each case by the relevant article. Overview There are five internal assessment criteria for each commentary. Criterion A Diagrams 3 marks Criterion B Terminology 2 marks Criterion C Application 2 marks Criterion D Analysis 3 marks Criterion E Evaluation 4 marks Total 14 marks There is one internal assessment criterion for the whole portfolio. Criterion f Rubric requirements 3 marks Each commentary is assessed individually for the first five assessment criteria (criteria A E) and then criterion F is applied to the whole portfolio. The maximum for the portfolio is 45 marks: (14 marks x 3 commentaries) + 3 marks = marks. The assessment criteria are related to the assessment objectives. Criterion A: AO2 and AO4 Criterion B: AO1

12 Criterion C: AO2 Criterion D: AO2 Criterion E: AO3 Criterion F: AO4 Time allocation It is recommended that approximately 20 hours of class time is allocated for the portfolio at both higher level and standard level. This should include: time for the teacher to explain to candidates the requirements for the portfolio class time for candidates to work on their commentaries time for discussion between the teacher and the candidate time for the teacher to review progress and to check authenticity. Assessment of the portfolio At the end of the course, the portfolio as a whole must be assessed against the internal assessment criteria. Extended Essay The extended essay is an independent, self- directed piece of research, culminating in a 4,000- word paper. As a required component, it provides: practical preparation for the kinds of undergraduate research required at tertiary level an opportunity for students to engage in an in- depth study of a topic of interest within a chosen subject. Emphasis is placed on the research process: formulating an appropriate research question of an economic issue engaging in a personal exploration of the topic based on sound economic theories communicating ideas developing an argument. Participation in this process develops the capacity to: analyse synthesize, and evaluate knowledge. Students are supported throughout the process with advice and guidance from a supervisor (usually a teacher at the school).
