About the Course
This course is a survey of capitalism, socialism, and communism. We will also get to know Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Thomas Sowell and Karl Marx. We will study countries with these versions of economic systems and try to understand something of the political and historical context. We will use the Bible as our standard. The outcome would be that the student could understand all views and be able to use reason and evidence to evaluate comments they hear in the news, in college, and in the world. We will use YouTube and other internet resources for assignments. Intro to Econ is a prerequisite to this class.
Offered Semester 2 only.
I have been privileged to teach with Cornerstone since 2016. I am thrilled to begin teaching English at Cornerstone for 3rd and 4th grades in 2019 - I love English and excelled in my English studies through college. I currently teach upper school Economics, Business Math, and I facilitate an Intro to Apologetics discussion. I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I was baptized when I was 23 years old at a relatively conservative church of Christ in Jackson, TN. I am currently a member at Southeast Christian church and attend the Indiana campus, where I soak up love and learning on Sunday mornings, and I greet at door 10 every other Sunday (which is awesome. I love it.)
I earned my BSBA in Business Administration- concentrating in Economics - from Union University in Jackson, TN in 1994; I was honored to receive the 1994 Award for Academic Excellence in Economics and Finance. I taught adults in a Business School. I worked for 7 years in the automotive industry, where I became ASQ certified as a Quality Engineer, where auditing, and training, and leading systematic team problem-solving, using graphical analysis and statistics, were daily tasks.
I think teaching is fun, and my goal is that your child's time in my class is efficient - that they remember a lot!
