10th Grade Economics
Students will learn the principles and practices of our economy
Students will need a multiple subject notebook for notes and assignments, pencils, or blue or black pins, red pins, and jumbo book covers.
Text book: Do not lose them, mark on them with a pen or pencil, or if they have any damage to them; you will pay for a brand new Economics book at full price. They are $90 a book. Handle with care. Don’t throw them or do anything to destroy them.
Students are to be in class on time with materials needed for the day. Students are only allowed three tardies. Anything after the third is a detention. Students are expected to take notes during lecture. Following lecture, homework will be assigned. Homework will be due the following day. When absent, you have 3 days to complete your work. Group projects will be assigned in this class as will. Some of these projects might be required to be finished as homework. This is a semester project that involves the stock market. A 10 minute power point will be due at the end of the semester. I expect full participation in this class. This includes asking questions and coming in on your own time for extra understanding of the homework at the time.
