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. One half-year English credit is also available through an optional literature and composition component.
The Curriculum Package includes:
- Exploring Economics (lesson and assignment book)
- Making Choices (a collection of supplemental primary sources and essays)
- Guide for Parents
This package does not include any review or test material or the recommended literature, so you may want the Exploring Economics Student Review Pack and the Exploring Economics Literature Package.
