Focus on Economics
With the introduction of the new school focus on economics, the 4th grades of the Social Science High School are working on a priority project for economics. Thereby, the students focus on various aspects of a current topic and work in a cross-disciplinary way. They independently research topics ranging from business, law, society and to politics and present their results and personal assessments to the audience at school and the press.
Students learn to research, evaluate and prepare information regarding a specific topic. Furthermore, they acquire presentational and teamworking skills.
The following topics have been addressed in former projects:
- Social poverty and poverty policy in South Tyrol
- Sustainable consumption
- Share Economy
- Islamic State
- Free Trade Agreements and Globalisation
- European Union
