Due to the snow holiday, the due date for the second current events commentary will be rescheduled for Thursday, 12/19 for FI students and Friday, 12/20 for all others.
A relevant news article about a trade dispute between two or more countries is due for FI students on Friday, 12/13 and due for all others on Tuesday, 12/17. (10 points, required.)
An outline of the second commentary will be due for all students on Wednesday, 12/18. Click here to download a copy of the outline/guiding questions worksheet. (10 points, required.)
For guidance on how to write the commentary, please refer to this tip sheet for writing the trade commentary. This is an update to the sheet handed out in class with an additional graphing tip.
Also, only students taking the IB economics test need to complete this second commentary. All students will complete the third commentary in February, however. It is important that IB test-takers complete the commentary before break in order to keep to our tight timetable of IB due dates–IB does not adjust for our snow days.
Thanks for your flexibility,
