    Teacher guidelines

    The following guidelines are supplied to enable teachers to carry out valid and consistent assessment using this internal assessment resource.

    Teachers need to be very familiar with the outcome being assessed by Achievement Standard Economics 90988. The achievement criteria and the explanatory notes contain information, definitions, and requirements that are crucial when interpreting the standard and assessing students against it.

    Context/setting

    This activity requires students to investigate interdependence between households and other sectors in order to demonstrate their understanding of the interdependence of sectors of the New Zealand economy.

    The activity is generic, but in the version of the activity used here, the Kiwifruit Vine Disease is used as the example of a recent economic event that had an impact on New Zealand producers.

    Students collect information from their family that shows the family’s participation in the economy. Students need to create a presentation based on a circular flow model that illustrates the flows between sectors and to explain this model with examples relating to their family’s participation in the economy.

    The evidence they collect could include quotes from an interview with people from the firm, photos, digital images from the Internet, samples of documents, and/or physical samples.

    Students will also create a presentation in which they use two simple economic models to explain how the impacts that a recent economic event had on New Zealand producers led to flow-on effects in other sectors.

    The students can present their findings as a multimedia presentation, or you may confirm another appropriate presentation format with them.

    This activity provides a clearly structured framework that you can adapt to examine the interdependence of sectors of the economy in a range of contexts. Before using it, you need to choose a context and adapt the activity and assessment schedule to suit that context.

    Students are expected to gain some first-hand experience on which to base their learning about the interdependence of sectors of the economy.

Conditions

    You need to decide how long your students will need to complete the task and what processes they will follow. Ensure that these are clearly outlined in the Student Instructions.

    The students will work individually.

    It would be appropriate for them to work under open book conditions with investigation facilities provided.

    Resource requirements

    Students will need access to computers to do research, contact firms by email if they require more information, and complete their presentations.

    Additional information

    None.

    Introduction

    This assessment activity requires you to demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of sectors of the New Zealand economy.

    You will gather information about your family’s participation in the economy, create a circular flow model that illustrates the flows between sectors, and explain this model with examples relating to your family’s participation in the economy.

    You will then use two simple economic models to explain how the impacts that a recent economic event had on New Zealand producers led to flow-on effects in other sectors.

    You will present your findings as a multimedia presentation.

    Teacher note: Adapt the presentation format to suit your students, e.g. a poster. The evidence you collect could include quotes from an interview with people from the firm, photos, digital images from the Internet, samples of documents, and/or physical samples.

    Teacher note: Specify a timeframe and processes that suit your students. You will work individually to complete this work.

    You will be assessed on the basis of the relevance of the information you gather, the accuracy and completeness of your diagram, your use of correct economics language, and how well you explain the interdependence of sectors of the economy, based on economic models.

    Task

    Before beginning this task, see Student Resources A and B for guidance. This resource is copyright ? Crown 2012 Page 4 of 15

    Internal assessment resource Economics 1.6B v2 for Achievement Standard 90988 PAGE FOR STUDENT USE

    Teacher note: You may choose to give students planning templates to help with

    the task. Examples are provided in the assessment schedule.

    Gather information

    Gather information about your own family’s participation in the economy, including specific examples of firms, goods and services provided, and money flows or transfers.

    Present your findings

    Create a multimedia presentation that uses a circular flow model to explain how your household has an interdependent relationship with other sectors in the economy. You will need to show how your household relies on each sector and how that sector relies on your household.

    Make reference to the flow(s) and examples you showed on your diagram. Present an explanation

    Create a presentation that uses the circular flow model to show the impacts of the Kiwifruit Vine Disease on New Zealand producers and the flow-on effects to other sectors of the economy.

    Provide a simple diagrammatic model that shows the interdependence of the primary producer sector and the tertiary producer sector, with particular reference to the kiwifruit industry.

    Explain these impacts and effects.

    Refer to your diagram and the firms you used as examples.

Student Resource A: Further guidance

    Collecting evidence

    Gather information that:

    ; includes at least two examples of your family’s interdependence with the producer

    sector. If possible, one should be an example of an employer/employee

    relationship and another an example featuring a producer of a good or service the

    family relies on. If there is no employer/employee relationship, identify two firms

    that provide goods and services for the family

    ; describes the nature of the interdependence in each example

    ; includes an example of your family’s interdependence with the financial sector,

    with a specific description of the nature of the interdependence and the firm(s)

    involved

    ; examples and details of your family’s interdependence with the government

    sector.

    Presenting your findings

    Create a flow diagram that illustrates how your household is interdependent with other sectors of the economy, by showing:

    ; real flows and money flows between your household and at least two producers ; the specific money flows between your household, government and the financial

    sector. Note that you will not typically have a direct relationship with the overseas

    sector unless you have travelled overseas or your household deals directly with

    an overseas business.

    Explain in detail:

    ; two ways in which the Household Sector and Producer Sector are interdependent ; how households are interdependent with one other sector that is not the

    producer’s sector.

    Presenting your explanation

    Provide a simple diagrammatic model that shows the interdependence of the primary producer sector and the tertiary producer sector, with particular reference to the kiwifruit industry.

    Explain in detail the impacts that the Kiwifruit Vine Disease would have on the Producer Sector that is linked with your model. You should:

     explain the effect upon kiwifruit producers

     explain the interdependence of the Primary and Tertiary Producer sectors,

    with reference to the kiwifruit industry

     explain the flow-on effect on other interdependent producers in the Tertiary

    Sector

    Explain in detail the flow-on effects to these sectors that integrate with your model. Explain using your economic model and the concept of interdependence, why the economic impact of the Kiwifruit Vine Disease will affect a much wider area than the regions that grow kiwifruit.

Student Resource B: News item

    BNZ considering kiwifruit impact

    The BNZ has looked at the economic impact of the vine killing disease that's hit the kiwifruit industry.

    Economist Doug Steel says it would be wrong to conclude that the full cost to the economy stops with the hit to on-orchard production and profitability.

    He says the impact of PSA will be far more wide-ranging, as the associated industries that service kiwifruit growers cop the fallout from any loss of production and income.

    Mr Steel says these multiplier effects could easily double or triple whatever impact there is on orchards.
