Economics Workshop

I’ve been enjoying this workshop I’m taking-the teacher, Mo, is from Iran, but he’s lived here for 25 years or so and he is one of the smartest people I think I’ve ever met! Who knew that learning about Economics could be so fun and entertaining!?!  We are working on projects to earn 3 credit hours for license renewal, and they have to be lessons that teach economic concepts, but can incorporate other subjects as well.  I’ll post mine when I’m done, but the basic premise is that we will be learning about the “scarcity” of milkweed plants for the Monarch Butterflies and Caterpillars.

I’ve also learned a lot of ideas about the Mini-Economy.  I left my notes in my workshop room, so I’ll post those tomorrow.  Without getting too political–I’ve learned a lot about this “war” we are fighting and many facts that make me wonder why we are not more upset with our president and demanding that we not withdraw troops sooner.  Anyway, it’s been interesting to hear things from a more economic view, and ACTUALLY understand them!  I’ve learned a lot, not just to share with my Kinder. kids, but things I should be doing myself economically!
