LESSON PLANS: JA Economics - GRADE 11-12

JA Economics is a one-semester course that connects high school students to the economic principles that influence their daily life as well as their future.

Through a variety of experiential activities presented by the teacher and volunteer, students better understand the relationship between what they learn in school, their future career, and their successful participation in today's global economy. Volunteers engage with students through a variety of activities that may include subject-matter guest speaking, coaching, or advising for case study and project coursework.

The course addresses each of the economics standards identified by the Council for Economic Education as being essential to complete a high school economics course, and is part of the Junior Achievement Financial Literacy Pathway.

JA pairs teachers with volunteer presenters to deliver the program in either in-person, virtual, or blended formats, and/or will provide training for teachers to deliver these programs themselves as well. Provision of a volunteer to teach the class is provided free of charge. Call or Email Junior Achievement of Hawaii for more information or to schedule a volunteer to teach the program.
