Class Experience

I've chosen to teach this class because I agree with Mark Twain, “I have never let schooling get in the way of my own education.” Much of my passion for history and economics has developed after my formal education when I’ve seen it applied to real-life- this class offers learners the opportunity to expand their knowledge outside of a traditional textbook and open the door to understanding how laws of economics has influenced their past and will continue to affect their future.  I love Richard Maybury's ability to share economic principles in an easy to understand format and its applicability today for our upcoming generations of leaders!  By adding the Power Point, current event articles and reflective application questions to these basic economic principles, I know visual learners will more easily understand and evaluate their place in our fluctuating economy and the role the government plays in its success.
Weekly assignments of reading the text, watching the video power-point presentations, supplemental videos and articles and interacting with the discussion questions/ posts will be expected for a fuller learning experience.    
 2 files available upon enrollment
I will supply a course syllabus which outlines the reading schedule, online current event articles and content covered for each class. The book, "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" by Richard Maybury is the required text- apx $14/ Amazon.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Comprehension of the content is assessed as we progress through the course via presentations and discussion/ writing assignments- including an interactive Kahoot quiz.  
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
