    Thank you for sharing your lesson plans. How did you come up with a grade for the course? Did you make rubrics for assignments?

    You’re welcome! I’m sorry I do not have a grading rubric for this. I don’t adhere to a strict grading system as I focus more on learning the material than getting every question right. But if I were to assign grades I would grade each set of comprehension questions with equal weight, and then grade the application exercises like you would an English written assignment.

    Thanks for the lesson plans attaching the Crash Course videos to the chapters! I’m planning to use ‘Whatever Happened to Penny Candy’ and the Bluestocking guide for my high schooler’s homeschool economics course this fall. Do you think going through your lesson plan would constitute a half credit? I’m also curious how you incorporated Economics: A Free Market Reader… Did your student read it afterwards, or along with the Penny Candy book/study guide?

    Did you count this as 1 credit for Economics and 1 for Government?

    I used this as 1 credit total. So if you wanted to break it down it would be 1/2 credit for Economics, and 1/2 credit for Government.
