Why Our Book Makes Sense For you
We get it. As a high school teacher, you're busy. Really busy. You most likely have multiple preparations, so Economics probably competes with your efforts to convince teenagers to write a better DBQ on Russian drilling equipment or the Monroe Doctrine. At some point, an administrator will be popping in to do an unannounced observation that will affect your APPR score. Then, it's probably off to coach a sport, direct a play, or advise a student group. Time is ever so scarce.
Here's why Economics for NYS High School Students makes sense for your classroom:
It's written concisely. Our textbook is short, only about 200 pages long. It's divided into 11 chapters that are easily digestible. No more skipping around in a 650 page textbook for your half-year course.
It's built like a story. Our textbook contains a clear, logical thread from beginning to end. It has a strong narrative voice so the reader feels that the author is talking directly to the student. As the teacher, you can guide, retell, and enrich that story with your own exercises and activities that you've always done.
It reflects current theory. Our book meets all the newest standards, including those concerning personal finance. Jerry sat on the committee that helped develop those standards, so we know what we're doing.
It aligns with evaluation frameworks. Each chapter begins with a set of essential questions which can be used to help you easily make the transition to the new inquiry-based model for Social Studies instruction in New York State.
It includes valuable resources. With the purchase of a class set of books, we will also provide a set of PowerPoints for each chapter to help you tell the story. These PowerPoints go along with the text, but you can customize them to include your favorite ideas and resources. We will also provide a test bank for each chapter that has both multiple-choice and open-ended questions for you to customize your assessments to meet your students' needs. Unlike other companies which charge hundreds of dollars for ancillary materials, we provide these for free.
