This lesson explains the clear difference between positive and normative economic statements. The lesson includes numerous examples, theory and tasks. The tasks include a positive and normative worksheet where students need to read statements and tick whether they are normative or positive (answer sheet also included). I have also included a case study on obesity where students need to highlight evidence of both positive and normative statements. The lesson concludes with a nice research task based on the topic. This lesson should be used at the start of the economic course to help explain how statements can be analysed properly. This lesson is perfect for teaching Economics.
Lesson Aim: Students will fully understand the key difference between positive and normative statemen
