Economics/ELA

ELA 11/Economics is an integrated course connecting advanced foundations of English Language Arts with relevant, real world learning in economics (Semester 2). Through this course, students will build upon the civics foundation established during semester 1 to consider concepts including supply/demand, national markets, the international marketplace, and how economic indicators drive local and global economies. Through the lens of informational, fiction, and memoir texts, students will consider the impact of economics on individuals, families, and nation. Argumentative writing will be a central theme of ELA, allowing learners to consider and advocate on behalf of a position relative to economics.
