Description for the "Economics Course for High School Students" curriculum package

The "Economics Course for High School Students" curriculum package provides an excellent introduction to economics for high school students.

Clearly written and remarkably easy to understand, the books included in the Course explain:

•Money (its origin and history)

•The dollar (its origin and history)

•Investment cycles

•Velocity of money

•Business cycles

•Recessions

•Inflation

•The demand for money

•Austrian and Monetarist schools of economic theory

•And more

The Uncle Eric books, written by Richard J. Maybury, are designed for young and old alike. Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew. With stories and examples, he gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts. 

Bluestocking Guides are designed to reinforce and enhance a student's understanding of the subject matter presented in the primer.  Comprehension Questions are given for each chapter - these include:

•Definition

•True/False

•Short Answer/Fill-in questions

Answers are located in the back of the study guide. Application Exercises are also given - generally, these ask the student to apply the knowledge he/she learned from a given chapter to "real world" situations so that the student may personalize the information and better retain and apply the knowledge gained from the primer. Application Exercises are provided for several chapters and include:

•Discussion

•Essay

•Research assignments

Suggestions for further study (books, movies, etc.) are included in many of the guides.

In addition to assisting the student in the retention of the subject matter, the study guides will serve as documentation of course completion.
