Mr. Robert Trifu « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar
Welcome to 7th Grade Civics and Economics! Brace yourself for a challenging second semester of what I hope will contain many positive educational experiences for you. By the end of this school year, you will have gained considerable knowledge and will be able to see the world more clearly so that the impact you will make upon it will have greater significance. I am looking forward to sharing this year with you and helping you succeed not only in this course, but in life as well - as you apply what you will learn to many of life's situations and better yourself as well as society.
During the month of March, we will be turning our attention to the study of economics. We will examine the different economic systems of the world, learn about the relationship between supply and demand, and identify macro and microeconomic concepts.
Students by now should have selected five companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange or on NASDAQ in which they have invested an imaginary amount of money. They will be following the prices of those shares throughout the month of March to determine if their purchases were profitable. The completed two stock tables will be due on 3/25.
Lesson Topics and Assignments will be posted weekly on the calendar. I will also post pdf files of various items for students (study guides, homework and project rubrics) made available below.
