Exploring Economics

How It Works

Exploring Economics is a one-semester high school course that helps students understand economic terms and issues that have an impact on the United States and its citizens. This course introduces both microeconomics and macroeconomics, providing one half-year of credit for high school. Written from a perspective of faith in God and trust in His Word, Exploring Economics surveys Biblical teachings on money and finance, provides an overview of the economic history of the United States, gives a clear explanation of terms and concepts used in economics, discusses economic issues confronting us today, and puts our participation in the national and world economies on a personal level. In a time when economic activity is challenging classic definitions, Exploring Economics reasserts the importance of the free market system and enables students to take part in the economy with knowledge and faith.

What the student is to do each day is clearly outlined. In addition to reading 75 lessons, students read a collection of essays called The Stewardship of God's Riches. Most lessons feature either a reading assignment, a writing assignment or an Econ Lab, which allows the student to get a practical perspective on the material being studied. An optional Quiz and Exam Book is available to measure your child's progress. Completing one daily lesson should take 30-60 minutes.

The Exploring Economics Curriculum Package includes two books:

  • Exploring Economics, with 75 lessons divided into fifteen units of five lessons each.

  • The Stewardship of God's Riches, a collection of essays and speeches.

What Parents Are Saying

"Easy to understand, gets the point across quickly, and teaches important things every homeschool student should know about economics." (Michigan)

"We have enjoyed Economics this semester and are just about finished. I never had economics in high school, and I'm glad I didn't then because I would probably have much to unlearn now!" (Missouri)

"I wanted to encourage anyone contemplating using this curriculum with your kids to go ahead and dive in. [D]efinitely have your students read the articles in The Stewardship of God's Riches. All of it is interesting. We and our kids should understand the idea of economics . . . This course is informative and painless." (Texas)

"One thing we love the most about your curriculum is how thought-provoking it is. Rather than just throwing a bunch of info at the student for them to memorize, your unit studies require them to think for themselves and develop opinions on issues based on the historical facts and Biblical truths you provide." (Illinois)

"It looks wonderful (as all of your products are) and we are so excited! Thank you for the investment you make to our lives as homeschoolers and fellow believers. It is so nice to know that I am able to give my children good textbooks that are going to uphold our Biblical worldview." (Oklahoma)
