    The Student Review Pack is considered optional. It includes a Student Review book with review questions on each lesson and essay questions on the literature, a Quiz and Exam Book with unit quizzes and exams, and a separate answer key. Discussions for the projects are not provided but would be helpful in some instances (some general information is provided in a brief parent guide included in the Curriculum Package). Questions, Quizzes, and Exams all tend toward reiterating textual information, while the projects tend toward analytical and evaluative activities.  Please note there are some corrections and updates for the Student Review Pack available on the Notgrass website.

     Concluding with the profound observation, America is a great nation and people are needed to practice, protect and promote economic liberty, this course introduces students to the history of economic thought, and modern economic issues currently facing America, before family economics, entrepreneurship and power of education are explored.

      One semester in length, the full course kit contains 3 Texts, 3 Activity books and the Teacher’s Resource Kit (TRK), along with the TRK digital download.  Designed for independent study, each text, called a chapter, cover fifteen topics.  Each text contains the lesson reading, bold vocabulary words with definitions in a vocabulary “box” on the page, life principle quotes and video clips via a QRC codes. Corresponding activity books provide questions for each topic. Questions are fill in the blank and matching, with lines to write the life principle.

    The Teacher’s Resource Kit includes black line masters for section quizzes (9), chapter tests (3), quiz and chapter test answer keys, activity answer keys, and the table of contents. Black line masters are reproducible for classroom use.

      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~Deanne

    Sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? The reality is there really is such a thing as common sense economics, especially as it relates to wealth and prosperity. Laying a solid foundation for beginning economists and helping advanced students/adults see the bigger picture of the impact of economic policy changes, this book seeks to alleviate economic illiteracy through key principles that equip us to make wise personal and policy choices. In Part 1, readers will explore the twelve key elements of economics. In this section, you will learn the true meaning of costs, why prices matter, how trade furthers prosperity and how the production of goods and services people value (and not just jobs) provides the source of high living standards. In Part 2, the seven sources of economic progress are explored with a focus on the major factors that underlie the growth process. Privately owned property, competition, limits on government regulation, efficient capital investments, monetary stability, low tax rates and free trade are covered in this section. Part 3 examines the role of government in common sense economics. Thoroughly explaining ten elements of clear thinking about economic progress and the role of government, you will quickly realize that the government does have a role in a successful economy, it may just need redefined. Part 4 concludes the economic study with twelve key elements of practical personal finance. Topics include your personal comparative advantage, entrepreneurship, budgeting, financing, savings, investments and diversifying, and teaching your children how to earn and spend money wisely. Including an extensive note section and index along with a website dedicated to the study of common sense economics, this well-organized exposition of economics will educate teens and adults with a thorough and practical understanding of economics and the impact it has on our lives. Worth noting is that the author has supplied a wealth of online resources, at the request of educators, to specifically provide a comprehensive economics course survey. HC. 227 pgs. ~Deanne

    Money can be a confusing thing. However, as kids learn what it is, where it came from, how to get it and how to use it, they can be confident in their handling of money. This book is a fantastic introduction to money. Students will learn about the history of money, bartering, and value. They will also be introduced to all of the coin and bill denominations of US currency, and then they will learn the basics of banking and using money. The projects throughout the book help kids explore the features of money and learn to count money as well as teach them, in a hands-on way, to understand place value, bank registers, spending and saving and much more (including some fun games with money!). Sprinkled with jokes, fun facts, and vocabulary throughout, this is an amusing introduction that will give kids a good foundation for financial literacy. 90 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
