Karla says, “It is aptly named Economics for Everybody because we all got something out of it without having to have an in-depth understanding of math or government. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a high school economics elective, or even if you would just like to have a better understanding of economics principles.” Read the rest of her review at Roads to Everywhere.
Susan says, “My first impressions are that Economics for Everybody lives up to it’s name. In the Introduction of the Study Guide, they give suggestions to use this curriculum in churches and small groups, middle or high school students, or families and individuals. I think it would work VERY well in all three of these group types, especially with their suggestions of how to best use the curriculum within these groups.” Read the rest of her review at Susan’s Spot.
Melissa says, “Bookworm is well ahead of his age when it comes to his obsessive interest in politics and economics. He has been wanting to study economics for quite some time, but most of the textbooks available are for high school or even college level students. The solution came in the DVD series, Economics for Everybody by R.C. Sproul Jr.” Read the rest of her review at Mom’s Plans.
Lizzie says, “Economics is not an exciting subject! It’s not one of those that makes students excited when they hear it’s on the schedule! Enter Economics for Everybody by R.C. Sproul Jr…” Read the rest of her review at A Dusty Frame.
Joesette says, “Economics for Everybody is today’s Timberdoodle product review. R.C. Sproul, Jr. is unapologetic in sharing from a Christian world view, using actual Bible references to expound on his economic teaching… Sproul, who enthusiastically teaches each DVD lesson is engaging and lively, with a twinkle in his eye. This is not your typical dry, boring economics class.” Read the rest of her review at Learning Curve.
Teresa says, “Do you dread the thought of teaching economics like I do? My memories of economics class in college are not the best, for this reason, I was pretty positive my children would feel the same way. Given the opportunity to review Economics for Everybody by R. C. Sproul Jr. from Timberdoodle company however has left me feeling differently about Economics.” Read the rest of her review at Bear Creek Felting.
Jennifer’s daughter said, “Before starting Economics for Everybody, I really did not know why I needed to take a course in economics. After beginning this study I realized how important it is for me as a member of society and as a Christian to have an understanding of economics. Dr. Sproul made the experience both interesting and fun.” Read the rest of Jennifer’s review at Homeschool Happenings.
Jennifer says, “I’d originally planned on just going through this [Economics for Everybody] course with my three high schoolers — it is, after all, a part of Timberdoodle’s 12th grade curriculum package. I expected it to be dry and boring, but figured we would slog through the material to help pad their transcripts and possibly prepare them for taking a macroeconomics CLEP test. But the videos were way more engaging and entertaining than any of us anticipated, and an interesting thing happened as soon as we plugged in the first one: my younger children (ages 12, 10, 8, and 6) […]
Christopher says, “In Economics For Everybody, by Ligonier Ministries, R.C. Sproul Jr. hosts a 12-part DVD-based study that explores the principles and consequences of today’s economic structures and how they impact Christians around the world… With segments averaging about 20 minutes, these are mostly quick-hit looks at very complex topics, but the opportunity for lengthy discussion is there.” Read the rest of his review at To Sow a Seed.
Melissa says, “Economics – admittedly a word that scares me. Especially as we approach an election year, I want my children to understand the flow of how our country works and that is definitely not an area of expertise for me! I know I need to learn more about Economics as well and I am so grateful for those who share their wealth of knowledge. Today’s review, Economics for Everybody from Timberdoodle is one I am greatly thankful for.” You can read her review at Grace Christian Homeschool.
