Exploring Economics is a one-semester course that provides one half-year of credit for high school. Students learn Biblical teachings about economics from the Old and New Testaments and a history of the U.S. economy. The curriculum emphasizes the contrast between command economies and free markets. Exploring Economics helps students understand both microeconomics and macroeconomics. The course explains economic terms from supply and demand to GDP and the Consumer Price Index, giving students tools to understand what they hear in the news and to make wise economic decisions.
Required Text: Notgrass Exploring Economics 2009 ed or the new 2016 edition. Do not worry about the comment that the 2016 version is not compatible. We have compared the two texts and they have the same topics in the same order and the content that is quiz-able is the same.
Lesson content will come from the text for this course, but we do already have the study notes in place and we are building interactive lessons to add to the course. These are optional where. We know how much students love the interactive lessons, so we work hard to add them in to our courses. :0)
