    Excellent resource! I purchased and used this resource as we were running out of time to teach this aspect of FPD. The students who were absent due to Covid-19 lockdown were able to access the resource easily. I turned the written component into booklets with the Part 2 and 3 resource which they used as study notes for the HSC.

    I liked this resource because relevant examples were given in the videos on the presentation. The examples are also current. The use of McDonald’s as a case study for this dot point is also very good.
