students for the AP Economics exams, administered each spring by the College Board.
Designed as a supplement to an AP Economics teacher's primary textbook, it uses two components:
* The Teacher Resource Manual gives teachers the form and structure for their AP Economics course. It contains unit and lesson overviews, course objectives, supplemental lesson plans, planning suggestions, visuals and answers to the Student Activities.
* The Student Activities Workbooks for Macroeconomics and Microeconomics feature activity-based lessons that illustrate the key concepts and principles being taught through lectures and textbook readings. The workbooks give students an economics reasoning framework to approach and solve the AP Economics exam questions, and provide special emphasis on graphing and supplemental readings. The microeconomics workbook contains 55 activities and the macroeconomic workbook contains 60 activities.
In a typical AP Economics class, teachers provide each student with their own workbook and then use the Teacher Resource Manual to complement their chosen college-level economics textbook. Teachers use the supplemental lesson plans from the Teacher Resource Manual to illustrate challenging economics concepts, and assign corresponding activities from the student workbooks to give students applied practice with college-level economics principles.
"The entire high school economics curriculum benefits when teachers confidently use materials that help increase student achievement on the AP Economics exams," added Duvall.
