    Economics is the study of choices and decisions people make about how to use the world's resources. Understanding economics will help you make informed decisions for yourself and assess the decisions made by others. This course is aligned with district and state standards and supports the school-wide efforts in increasing student achievement. I will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, videos, simulations, debates, discussions, writing projects, guest speakers, and technology.
