* This course is a core elective that may be offered for either 0.5 units of social studies or applied technology education (ATE) credit. Persons who teach this course are required to have a social studies, business, or marketing composite with a minimum of six semester hours in economics. The credentials of the instructor do not determine the credit options for students. Students may decide to take this class for social studies, business, or marketing credit (but not all). However, to generate ATE add-on dollars, a social studies teacher must also have an approved ATE endorsement.
Core Standards of the Course
Students will demonstrate why and how commonalities and differences of ideas, attitudes, choices, and technologies influence the interaction and behavior of individual groups, institutions, and cultures. Explain why individuals, groups, and institutions respond to change in a particular way on the basis of shared assumptions and technologies.
Explain how the scarcity of productive resources including, natural, human, and capital goods requires the development of economic systems to make basic decision about how goods and services are to be produced and distributed.
