Making markets work

...for the poor

Making markets work  is a hands-on series of activities covering 4-5 lessons that will develop understanding of geography’s big concepts of systems, development and decision-making, within the context of South Asia, and in particular Bangladesh.

Thinking skills strategies and aspects of the SEAL curriculum are incorporated to help students understanding of how market systems work in developing countries. The use of this current and up to date development initiative ensures that the pupils are learning about real places and people.

Designed primarily for KS3 it could be easily adapted for KS2 and KS4 pupils.
