The course is designed to educate the educators at the K-12 level. The course will educate the K-12 teachers about economics in everyday life with some basic microeconomics, macroeconomics, finance and current economic issues. Economics begins with the study of how individuals, firms, and other economic agents in our society make choices. Choices are unavoidable because desired goods and services are unlimited, while resources are inevitably scarce. The course will briefly cover the analysis of trade-off, demand and supply, market efficiency, externalities, consumer & production theory, GDP, unemployment, inflation, fiscal and monetary policy, investment, entrepreneurship, and personal finance.
The course is also designed to help build lesson plans, and activities to engage students at the secondary level about basic economic and financial concepts. The course will teach various active learning and instructional methods to educate your students.
