Rarely has an understanding of the principles of economics been as important as it is today! With a lively graphic-novel style, Making Economic Choices presents practical economic concepts such as scarcity, supply, demand, taxes, interest rates, credit card payment, and loans by relating them to students’ daily experience. Students will learn the implications of popular consumer slogans such as “why wait for payday?” and “low monthly payments” and explore what it means to be an informed consumer. This teacher- and student-friendly textbook supports all learning styles at the workplace level, builds critical thinking and literacy skills, and encourages thoughtful class discussion.

  • Section-by-Section Approach: Making Economic Choices uses a section-by-section approach in which economic ideas are presented in short, self-contained units rather than in large blocks of text. These short bursts of “digestible” information are less overwhelming, more manageable, and easier for student readers to review.
  • The Way It Happened: A graphic novel presentation of a problem or issue related to economics.
  • Check It Out: A regular opportunity for students to test and apply their understanding of economic concepts.
  • Teacher's Resource: Includes assessment and evaluation tools and strategies, answers to textbook questions and activities, and a CD-ROM with modifiable line masters.
