"Economics: Theory and Practice"
UNIT 1: INTRODUCTION TO ECONOMICS
"Economics: Theory and Practice", a required course for all Seniors, introduces the students to the fundamental concepts of Economics. For one semester the student examines the theoretical concepts of Micro- and Macro-Economics (for Economics credit); the other semester emphasizes personal economics from a more practical perspective (for Family and Consumer Science credit). The fundamental strategy behind the course lies in a team teaching approach through the two disciplines: Family and Consumer Sciences and Social Studies. The course emphasizes career preparation--both college-bound and non-college bound routes--by balancing the theoretical with the practical.
