  1. Hello! I was wondering if a Personal Finance course can be used for Economics credit for HS? In Texas we need 0.5 credits for Economics to graduate and all the textbooks I looked at seem a lot more in depth than I was hoping. Since my kid will be doing a Personal Finance course ( Dave Ramsey) I was wondering if that would suffice? If she has to have Economics rather than just PF, do you have any book suggestions that cover enough to understand it, but don't take up too much time? Thanks so much!!
  2. I have a question for anyone who has used ACDC Economics videos. I'm really interested in buying the Teacher Resources to use with a small co-op class I'll be doing this year. However, I'm not sure what text to use with the program. What book did you use with the videos? Did you use the teacher resources and worksheets? What did you think of them? Thank you!
  3. My daughter is in 8th grade, but I'm looking ahead so that we can plan out her high school for college entry. I have noticed that colleges require World History, US History, Government, and Economics. I'm not sure how to include that on her transcript if she is doing the high school level history through Well Trained Mind.

    The complete 3rd edition of "Economics" from the Great Courses on DVD. This is a 6 DVD set with 36 video lectures by Prof. Timothy Taylor. Great preparation for the AP Macroeconomics and AP Microeconomics exams. This is what Mr. Richman from AP Homeschooler's uses for his AP Macro class. Great set of lectures, very engaging. DVDs are in excellent condition.


  5. Anyone have some good recommendations for an economics book for middle school? I'd love something that cool/graphic/interesting/conceptual, like a Beast Academy or MCT for economics, but any suggestions would be much appreciated. It's for my 6 year old, who mainly works at something like a middle school level (at least conceptually). We do a lot of current events, and I keep finding that I end up trying to explain pretty difficult economic concepts on the fly. thanks much
  6. Hello all, I'm looking to supplement a get it done economics curriculum with historical fiction that would teach economics concepts. Could you all please help me out??? Thanks so much! Oh, and if some are juvenile fiction that's fine too. Here are the topics I'm trying to cover... US Founding Pre Industrial Revolution Post Industrial Revolution Great Depression Communism A broad sampling of world history focusing on economic development I have thought of several books... Pride and Prejudice or Mansfield Park The Great Gatsby The Merchant of Venice Animal Farm The Grapes of Wrath
  7. Has anyone used MFW's Economics in a box? What do you think? Is it worth the $$?
  8. My son is a junior this year and is taking pre-calculus/trig. He is planning to major in Economics. I think he would most enjoy a year long AP Statistics class next year, however, I don't know if he "needs" calculus on his transcript. Another option is to take a semester of Calculus followed by a semester of Statistics at our local community college. Advice?? Ashley

  10. I was reading this article: Embracing Wynne Godley, an Economist Who Modeled the Crisis and it made me wonder whether there has been a trickle down of changes in what students are supposed to learn for high school economics courses? Does anyone know? I've always wondered what business schools have done in the past 5 years as well...do they change their programs? Are people who graduated just before the crisis considered to have a worthless diploma since things went so badly? The only answer I really need is for high school as we're doing economics now...:-) Any help is greatly appreciated, Joan
  11. Planning ahead. I would like to have something that requires low teacher involvement...because I am swamped. This child doesn't do well with straight text learning, but prefers story based like the STOW books. I would like something that at least will discuss all sides even if it is biased towards one side. Heather
  12. I am looking for a good book to explain the different aspects of the US economy. Not a textbook, just a book that explains it in easily understandable terms. Topics like: explaining debt, recession, value of money... Unfortunately, this would be as much for me as for my ds! Thanks in advance!
  13. I am looking for a semester course for economics and another one for American Government. My daughter prefers the textbook approach and we need something that can be completely mostly independently. I would prefer secular but am open to something like BJU. This is for the 11th/12th grade level. I would appreciate any suggestions. I would also appreciate feedback about BJU US History. Thanks.
  14. What do you recommend as the main text for a 1/2 credit of economics? ETA: I already plan to use the following: * The Teaching Company Economics video course or Introduction to Economics free video lectures from learners TV * Money Smart for Young Adults free from the FDIC or Dave Ramsey's Foundations in Personal Finance * Economic Daily Warmups from Walch Publishing * The Motley Fool Investment Workbook Supplementals I am considering are: * The Money Book for the Young Fabulous & Broke by Suze Orman * Freakanomics *Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? by Bluestocking Press * Rich Dad Poor Dad for Teens Robert T. Kiyosaki * Capitalism for Kids by Bluestocking Press I am sorry I did not share this information before (it was very late when I posted). Hopefully this will aid in your voting decision.
  15. What have you used and liked for a (secular) economics course? I'm in CA which requires .5 credit in Econ. Online, video, text recommendations are great. I'd be fine with pulling together a course using Teaching Company and/or Kahn Videos, but probably need some kind of text as a spine to make sure I cover it all. Thanks!
  16. ETA: Rats, I meant to say "economy," not "society." Sorry! Let me start by saying that I may not be expressing myself well at all. Macroeconomics is not a subject I know much about. Since the economy began tanking and the belt tightening began, I've just been thinking and wondering about this and wish I knew how to learn more. Reading Julie's "single-income family" thread finally prompted me to ask. Any recommendation for reading materials would be very welcome! Here's what I'm wondering. We are such a consumption-based economy. When that kind of economy starts to fail and people start buying less, the economy sinks even more, right? We've talked a lot, in many threads, about how families could get by on less if they were really frugal and how US consumers' expectations of a "normal" lifestyle involve so many unnecessary things (smart phones, big TVs, iPads, etc.). If we actually managed to lower those expectations and get people consuming less, what does that mean for the economy as a whole? Is there an alternative type of economy that we could be working toward, rather than just encouraging people to buy more? If the answer to these questions are really obvious, please don't laugh at me :D Finance and economics are topics that seem really overwhelming to me, so I have a hard time knowing where to start! TIA for your thoughts.
  17. This is the only place I could think of to get REAL answers for my problem... We have used Sonlight and or Mystery of History almost all the way through our Homeschooling career. Lit based or spine programs...We have used some workbook things and even have experience with SOS (for HS Health) and Teaching Textbooks for Math. So, now that we are HERE - 12th grade (AH!) MOH doesn't have the 4th book out and we don't want to use Sonlight as it's too Lit. intense for that Core. We JUST want to get the credit for Am Gov & Econ and be done (KWIM?). My son is headed into the Military as a Firefighter so just needs the info and the credits. I have looked at SOS's 1 year program and Notgrass 1/2 semester each, Amanda Benett's Unit Study on Gov....and a few other things like Economics in a Box. Is there ANYTHING else out there I should check out before making my final decision? I would love something more Video driven or on the computer, but doesn't have to be, of course. HELP! ;)
  18. I scanned through quickly and didn't see this so let me know if it has already been listed somewhere. I often see people looking for economics curriculum (myself included) so I thought I would link to a new teacher's manual for a small, free book about economics. It is published by the Ludwig von Mises Institute so it has a strong Austrian school flavor, if that matters to you. I have it in my grubby little hands and I really like it. It is large (413 pages), has essay type, thoughtful questions, ideas for activities, and additional resources. It says it is for junior high and high school and they aimed it at public school AND homeschool (yippee). Anyway, here is the link to the basic information and some samples and a download of the reading manual that the teacher's manual uses. The teacher's manual is $22 and the lesson manual is a free pdf download. (also posted on the K-8 board)
  19. Or do you just do the videos? (not talking about the worksheets in the book, but the worksheets that can be printed off from the teacher's cd rom.) Do you adminster the tests? How do you use this with your kids? Also, is this worth 1/2 credit?
  20. I got a catalog in the mail, and the prices are greatly reduced. Many of these look interesting, but I don't want to buy them if they aren't all that "great." :D Thanks in advance for your responses!
  21. Is there anything that worked well or something that you didn't like at all? Karen
  22. I know that 8th is still considered middle school, but I couldn't find anything on economics for this age on the logic stage board. My son likes money/economics (the subject, that is :001_smile:). I would like to do something with him this coming year involving this subject, but i don't know what to do. I've looked at some courses that seem to be too old for him. Would any of you have suggestions for a light economics course that a 13 year old boy could do? Thanks!
  23. Do you give a full credit for each of these classes? When I took (non-AP) econ and govt in high school, they were one-semester classes. The AP homeschoolers versions only last until February and March, respectively. Have you given a them 1/2 credit? 3/4? Thank you.
  24. Hi, Can anyone help me figure out the economic courses that Thinkwell offers? It appears that Sonlight's economics that uses Thinkwell is using Thinkwell's economics course that is listed under student available courses on their web site. Thinkwell also lists the macroeconomics and microeconomics courses under the student list of courses available. Through the homeschool buyers co-op Thinkwell's micro and macro economics are both available, but each is a semester class. The course listed as just economics is not offered. Does anyone have experience with any of these courses? What would be best for AP prep? Thanks, Judy
  25. Ignore the politics (and the source, if you can't stand them) -- This little article is a great, concise explanation, with real world examples, of the Laffer curve - a fundamental concept in basic economics courses that many students have difficulty comprehending. Bonus - it is actually written by Laffer, himself. asta
