Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
I’m still navigating my way into this world of homeschooling high school. While we still adhere to a mostly delight directed approach even in highschool, I am fully aware that colleges are expecting my students to have completed certain courses when they apply. It hurts my brain to think of all the things I need to make sure my kids know things…. academically, spiritually, emotionally… things to know to launch into this world! Some days I’m so busy keeping my head above water that I cannot even think about all the things. I am so glad when opportunities to review high school level products come our way. We recently received the Economics Online Course Bundle from Boundary Stone.
Economics Online Course Bundle has several components – an online class with videos, daily check lists, quizzes, reviews; a digital PDF teacher’s guide; a hardback textbook. The course also asks for two additional books. The course is designed to be completed in one semester with daily lessons. We were given a 12 month access for one student.
I have realized over the last few months that my own knowledge of government and economics is severely lacking. I am realizing just how important those things are in the real world. I want to give my children a solid foundation. My son will be able to vote in the 2024 election. I want him to know things.
We received the 12 month access as well as the hard back book pictured above. There are two additional books requested for the course. The main text is Basic Economics, A Natural Law Approach to Economics written by Clarence Carson and Paul Cleveland. It is over 370 pages and contains the main information for the course. The three sections to the course are:
The Framework of Economics
The Production and Distribution of Goods
The Politico-Economic Systems
The program is self paced and laid out like many of the online programs we have had opportunity to review. When you log into your course, the Units and Lessons are found on the left side of the screen. You click on the lesson, work your way through the readings, videos, etc. and mark complete to move to the next lesson. You must complete the lessons in order. Once completed, the lesson remains unlocked so you can go back to review.
My son asked me the other day what the difference between capitalism and socialism is. You know… when I was a kid, socialism was a bad word. Today’s kids hear the words socialism and communism thrown around like it is no big deal. I really appreciate Boundary Stone’s Online Economic Course and how it brings to light subjects that are very relevant today all the while taking cues from our founding fathers. The course is presented from a Biblical worldview, emphasizing that our world was created intentionally by God and we can discover his order in all that we do.
In addition to access to the course and the text book, I received a downloadable PDF teacher’s guide, an online version of the United States Constitution, and a printable PDF of the book, The Law by Frederic Bastiat.
I’m realizing my time with my kids really will go fast. It is limited and I don’t want to waste any of it. I want to fill my kids school with useful, practical, solid materials. I do believe I have found that through Boundary Stone’s Online Economic Course Bundle.
