Exploring Economics is a one-semester course 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 and helps students understand both microeconomics and macroeconomics. It gives students tools to understand what they hear in the news and to make wise economic decisions.
One half-year English credit is available through an optional literature and composition component.
The following four books are used for the literature component:
Silas Marner by George Eliot
The Rise of Silas Lapham by William Dean Howells
The Travels of a T-shirt in the Global Economy by Pietra Rivoli, Ph.D.
