Practical and Foundational Economics
This book is the combined effort of two professional teachers, one at the high school level, the other college levels. Both believe that the Bible has a lot to say about the field of economics, so you'll find lots of scriptural references in the early sections of the book, and four scripture memory verses. This worktext is intended to be used over one semester.
You can tell that the course was designed by instructors with an eye to making it easy to use for the teacher. A Student Course Syllabus makes planning simple, dividing the work into the 18 weeks. Grading is equally easy, as the book provides a schedule of point values per assignment and space to record each grade. Lessons were divided into 2 or 3 sections each. Text is short, usually 2 or 3 pages, followed by 3 to 5 review questions, with space to fill in the answers. Color graphics enhance the visual appeal of the book. Practical Application Activities, Articles for Group Discussion, Oral History Projects, and Case Studies are interspersed here and there throughout the semester. 7 tests and quizzes are provided to use over the course of the semester, as well as a 2-part final exam.
Because text is short in duration and limited to main points, you will find no deep discussions of economic theory here. This course could be used successfully at any high school grade level without concern that the concepts are over the student's head. 290 pgs, sc. ~ Bob
