Why are some people and nations more prosperous than others? This very practical study of economics explains the laws or principles of economics—and the consequences of disregarding them! What is the proper role of government in economics? This course demonstrates the link between economic freedom and political and individual freedom by encouraging free-enterprise capitalism and moral responsibility with money. As the A Beka Academy teacher explains the economic principles of production, supply and demand, competition, inflation, and saving, your high schooler, along with his video classmates, will also be learning principles that will help him make informed money-management decisions throughout his life! As he becomes acquainted with the students on the video, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to allow “classmates watching” opportunity to participate.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. The video lease provides you with a full 6 months to complete the 85 lessons, which take 40–50 minutes of viewing time each. You also have the option to purchase either the tuition and books or tuition only (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). Both options include the assessment materials, a video manual to help you stay on track with the video teacher, and record-keeping progress reports to document progress through the school year.
A Beka Academy also offers the option of Independent Study, in which you keep your teen’s academic records, or our Accredited Program. Our Accredited Program does not cost a penny more and provides official report cards, an official transcript, and free standardized testing. It also gives you the option to choose digital assessments. With either option, academic assistance is only a phone call or an e-mail away. One semester. Recommended grade 12.
