Introduction to Economics will present the foundational concepts, major ideologies and practical topics of the field of micro and macro economics through a combination of traditional textbook, fictional examples, independent projects and current events. Class lectures are fun, interactive discussions, and homework, while rigorous, includes textbook assignments, supplemental reading, and assorted video clips (cleaned up if necessary!) of movie and TV programs that demonstrate economic concepts in a way that make topics come alive. Suggested grade level 10-12.
Economics is usually coupled with American Government during a student’s junior or senior year of high school for a full social science credit.
