Course Overview

High School Economic Concepts Course | Summer 2020

In this introduction to microeconomics course, students learn about how consumers and producers interact to form a market and then how and why the government may intervene in that market. Students deepen their understanding of basic microeconomic theory through such methods as:

  • Class discussion and debate
  • Problem solving
  • Written reflection

Hands-On Experience: On-Site Economic Education

Students visit a local production site and write a report using the market principles they have learned. Economic ways of thinking about the world will help them better understand their roles as consumers and workers, and someday, as voters and producers.
