Don’t just study business… Be Business!

Be Business covers the three years of common level Junior Cycle Business. Containing straightforward explanations integrated with activity-based learning, it skilfully facilitates student learning, planning, investigating and research. Be Business fosters a learning experience beyond the classroom and plants the seeds of enterprise.

  • Each strand is introduced using learning outcomes and key explanations.
  • Dedicated sections are given for each of the three strands: Personal Finance, Enterprise  and Our Economy.
  • Each unit is linked to a learning outcome to ensure alignment with the Specification.
  • Units are framed by relevant ‘Learning Intentions’ and ‘Key Concepts’.
  • Key themes such as technology, globalisation, ethics and sustainability are integrated  throughout.
  • ‘Time to Think’ encourages students to think about the bigger picture and relate topics to  their own lives.
  • ‘Working with Others’ tasks offer the opportunity for creative pair and group work.
  • Regular ‘Checking In’ questions can be used as a form of ongoing assessment and for  homework.
  • Easy-to-follow ‘mind maps’ at the end of each unit link the learning outcomes and are a great revision tool.
  • The ‘Be Prepared’ sections facilitate students to evaluate their learning and support their  progression.
  • Clear success criteria are provided where appropriate. 
  • ‘Be Creative’, ‘Be Numerate’, ‘Be Literate’ etc. signpost to students the skills they are learning.
  • Material is generated for students’ classroom-based assessments, Business in Action and  Presentation, and links made across topics in preparation for the final examination.
  • A Business Studies key term glossary is given at the back of the book.
