They will be challenged to think about the world around them and gain an understanding of economic principles that will not only prepare them for college but more importantly, for life!  Class will include reading and weekly homework.  Our weekly class times will include discussion, class activities, one group project, guest speakers and lots of engaging video to enrich the reading material.
