Economics for Everybody is designed to be the base of a one-semester economics class for homeschool high school students. If this Scope and Sequence is followed, it will be good for one half credit in economics.
The course can be used in two ways: by itself as a lighter study to introduce basic economics concepts (9th/10th graders), or used together with another economics textbook as a more in depth study for students with worldview training (10th/11th/12th graders). If you choose to do the latter, we recommend Basic Economics, Third Edition by Carson and Cleveland. It is available at CompassClassroom.com.
The 12 Lessons in the study follow a certain sequence that may not be obvious to the casual observer.
Everything fits together, with each lesson generally building on the lesson before it.
The study guide (sample) closely follows the material taught in the series. If you are new to economics, you may find the introduction of so many ideas makes it difficult to remember everything said. Your learning process should be helped immensely if you read the corresponding chapter in the guide after you watch the lesson.

We recommend that each person get his or her own Study Guide (or at least borrow a friend’s) while going through the study. Although there are many ways to approach the series, here are a few suggestions:
