FAQs Coming Soon

Teachers - 

  •  Teaching - 
    • Demand History – This is a brand new class for 2016-2017. I estimate that we will need one or two teachers for grades 4-8.  For each session you take, it is a once weekly, one-hour class session plus a 15- minute pre-class sign in to greet students and set up.
    • Schedule – This is a full year, 36 week course- not counting breaks.
      Class time will follow a basic routine of game style review, presentations by alternating scheduled students (the majority of class time), map work, and timeline work. Kids do the reading and other activities at home during the week.
    • Preparation - There is one class plan to follow for the entire year and one set of slides that will be reused each week. There is also a variety of review questions and answers to choose from during the game style review each week. You should be familiar with the material by reading it at home yourself each week or having completed the program in the past.

Graders - 

  • Grading Type -  Weekly notebooking pages or memory cards will be graded using a rubric. Extra credit assignments are graded by a simple point system. There are occasional essay questions or exercises that need graded manually, but the majority of quizzes are graded automatically.
  • Need - Each teacher will likely need at least one devoted grader, possibly two. So a total of 4 graders would be great.

Age: High school

Description:

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)
