Course | Principles of Business Economics New


Principles to Business Economics is an updated version of Business Economics using blended learning strategies such as digital portfolios, choice boards, flipped learning, and station rotation. The course covers basic economic principles, economic systems, entrepreneurship, and careers. Learners have voice and choice as they apply economic principles to an authentic challenge of examining their communities' economic development plans and offering solutions to real issues.

Planning Tools
For Learners

PLANNING TOOLS provides essential information to guide course implementation, including scope and sequence, detailed lesson plans, semester planning outline, course updates, and project overview. Several courses offer free online resources with hyperlinked URLs to enhance blended, synchronous, and asynchronous learning. The scope and sequence guide the resource selections to ensure the content aligns with lesson topics. The online resource collection includes course outlines, modules, lesson plans, videos, projects, and articles.

FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?

The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
