Designed to supplement standard texts, these reproducible books offer 45 lesson plans with activities to augment a semester course in 11th or 12th grade economics.

Emphasizing critical thinking, economic reasoning, group discussion, and real-world problems, the lessons are designed to explore such questions as "Why do some people make more than others?," "How do prices influence my behavior?," "Should we worry about the national debt?," and "Why do people trade across national borders?" The lessons are grouped into seven units:

  • The Economic Way of Thinking
  • The Invisible Hand at Work
  • How You Can Prosper in a Market Economy
  • The Business of Doing Business
  • The Visible Hand: The Role of Government in a Market Economy
  • The Macroeconomy
  • Markets without Borders: The Global Economy

The lesson plans in the 303-page teacher’s guide contain procedures, content summaries, objectives, visuals for overhead projectors, and a wealth of charts, exercises, and practice tests. The 125-page student book offers coordinated activities.
