Economics in High School guide

Unread post by HomeschoolHarvest » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:58 pm

I'm looking at the high school program US History 1877 to Present and have a question about the economics program. In the current catalog the program is Economics in a Box. On the MFW website, the program is called Oikonomia. Is this the same product? Which one actually comes in that program?
Thanks!

I'm guessing the website has the most up-to-date information. I hope someone who has ordered this level will see your question :)

Lourdes is correct :) The publisher made a few minor changes, and those are now on our website.

The changes involve...
1. Title change (Oikonomia means something like Economics for Life)
2. They took out Whatever Happened to Penny Candy from their Lesson Plans, so that will no longer be in the package
3. Physical videos have been replaced by online access to the videos for a certain period of time (6 months?)
4. While they were at it, they seem to have revamped various things, but it seems to be the same basic program

The publisher at this time has two websites, EconomicsInABox and EconForLife.

Julie,
Do you know if you can use Economics in a Box with the current guide, or Oikonomia with a previous guide? I haven't seen the 12th grade guide first hand, so I'm not sure how Economics is scheduled.
Thanks!

Yes, Economics is scheduled within the Economics guide and does not rely on scheduling within the MFW Lesson Plans. It is designed so it can be completed as a separate credit that can even be used by students using other years besides US History 1877 to Present.

So, either version can be used.

Does that make sense?
