Parents: This unique series of books presents political and economic principles in a fun, exciting way for older elementary kids. Your student will have the opportunity to debate for/against the ideas presented in these books as well as practice his budding entrepreneurship skills. Our goal is not to convince your child of any certain political leanings. Rather, we encourage your child to grapple with ideas for himself revolving around law, government and economics. Kids: This means you get to read fun books, argue in class (with respect of course) and sell your ideas and/or cool stuff you make!
Class Requirements and/or Prerequisites
Good reasoning skills are required for this class. Homework will be required for this class. Reading may be assigned and certain weeks will have additional special homework projects. A schedule with these special projects will be sent home with your child on the first day of class. No “busy work” will be assigned.
