IBDP Economics: Paper 3 – the new policy paper

The new paper 3 is a significant departure from previous examination papers. Students will be required to solve economic problems, and suggest appropriate policies. This will change the way we teach IB Economics in our classrooms. Students will have an opportunity to become Economists in their own right, suggesting and evaluating economic policies.

In this webinar we will investigate the changes to paper 3 with a focus on:

– the type of questions that may be asked on the new paper 3
– how to help your students get a “7” for the paper
– a range of strategies to teach the new paper 3
