Length of
Lesson: 70 min

Lodging and withdrawing money
24 hour banking
Night safe
(The number of appropriate Key Concepts will vary depending on the lesson you intend on teaching)

What am I going to teach?
I will examine how to lodge and withdraw money from an account
I will explore what an ATM is and how to use one
I will explore what 24 hour banking is
I will examine what a night safe is and what they are used for.
At the end of this lesson, students should be able to explain lodgements and withdrawals and complete
the relevant slips. They should also be able to explain what and ATM is and how to use one. Students
should be able to give a brief explanation of 24 hour banking and list the services it offers. Students
should be able to explain what a night safe is and the procedure for using one.
How will I know that the learning outcomes are being achieved?
1. Learning outcome one will be assessed by asking students to explain lodgements and
withdrawals and completing the relevant slips.
2. Learning outcome two will be assessed by students writing what the letters ATM stand for and
the relevant steps to using one
3. Learning outcomes three and four will be assessed by using the think pair share method, asking
students to relay to the class all the information they know on both topics.
What prior knowledge do students have about this topic?

From the last class we had I touched on some of the topics in this lesson, although students did not have
much prior knowledge of these. Students may however be familiar with ATM’s and how to use one as I
learned from the previous class that some of them have bank accounts and ATM cards. If some students
come from a business background they may be aware of a night safe if their parents use one.

How will I differentiate the content knowledge of this lesson so as to include all learners in a mixed
ability class?
As this class is mostly at the same level of learning, this lesson will not require much differentiation;
however I will have to ensure to have extra work for some of the people who may finish the tasks early.
What materials/resources will I need/use?
Computer, projector, whiteboard, whiteboard markers, Eurobusiness book, copybooks,
(Taylor, J. (2011). Eurobusiness. Dublin: Folens.)

What are the essential aspects of literacy/numeracy in this lesson?
There are some new words which I will use in this class, which I will have to write on the board so that
students know how to spell them in case they have never seen them before. Also numeracy is also a basic
requirement for this lesson as students will be using their books on certain pages and also when filling
out the lodgement slips and withdrawal slips they will be using numbers.
This lesson also contains aspects of communication as students will have to present what they know to
the whole class, students must have the ability to communicate aloud with the class.

What have I learned about my own practice from this lesson?

What will I do differently in my next class?
