    Hello Seniors, parents, and guardians.  Spring Break has concluded and now our school and district together are working dilligently to address the needs and concerns of our students, staff, and community due to COVID-19.  It appears that for the forseeable future teaching will be reserved to online only with PUHSD utlizing Microsoft TEAMS.  District will be contacting every student soon about what the future of learning will look like.  Once our administration has informed teachers of the path forward I will share how this class will proceed for the remainder of the semester.  Seniors, we do miss you and are doing everything within our power to make sure the semester will go on in some capacity.  Please check your school email regularly as updates a occuring on a daily basis.  
     
    Economics is a one semester required class for graduation.  Students will be learning about: scarcity, needs & wants, profit motive, the role of government, self-interest, Adam Smith, supply and demand, banking, advertising, entreprenuership, markets, prices, shortages, surpluses, market structures, taxes, inflation, unemployment, gross domestic product, fiscal & monetary policy, the Federal Reserve, stocks, bonds, protectionsim, tariffs, quotas, corporations, income, social security, savings, credit, personal finance, and the global economy.  The wealth of knowledge for economics is complex and vast.  I will do my best to use real world examples, technology enrichment, and classroom discussions to help bridge everyone's understanding of these economic concepts.
     
    Expectations:  As always student participation, respect, and academic responsibility are expected by all my seniors.  AVID Cornell Notes, Close reading, & marking the text continue to be used regularly as common reading & learning strategies required by Cesar Chavez High School's Improvement Plan .  Every student should come prepared with a pen, pencil, notebook, highlighter, binder and Advisory agenda.   Lastly, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me.  Thank you.  Have a great 2nd semester and challenge yourself to be the very best.
