High School Economics Unit Plan
These are my high school economics unit plan for this coming semester. Please note some of these resources are controversial and are not meant for younger audiences. Some of Stossel’s clips mention sex, some of the movie choices are rated PG-13, and not everyone agrees on money, religion, and politics. I fully expect my co-op to wrestle with these topics, I planned it that way.
High School Economics Unit Plan: Resources
- Economics for Everybody: Applying Biblical Principles to Work, Wealth, and the World by R.C. Sproul Jr.
- Stossel in the classroom: Good Intentions Gone Wrong
- Life of Fred Math: Pre-Algebra 2 with Economic
