Hello, my name is Susan Hodges and I will be your instructor for American Government/Economics. I am married and have four children. Two in college, one at Madison Academic High School, and one married with a beautiful daughter-in-law! I was a Physical Therapist before retiring my license and homeschooling my kids. Best thing I ever did! I have two passions in the area of teaching: math and history/Gov’t and Econ. The two almost go hand in hand…I am excited to teach this course and will use regular course material as well as the Uncle Eric Series books to teach. Class participation and writing will be a must! Current events will be used as food for thought and students will be asked to summarize events. If you are just signed up for the first part – Gov’t – please have the ‘Whatever Happened to Justice’ book. If you are signed up for the entire year, please purchase all books located under both courses in the registration page.
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com or (731)-487-5737 with any questions!
Remember to check the Faith tutorial website for homework and to stay up to date on what is going on in class!
Class Expectations: We will usually cover 1-2 chapters per class: Occasional pop quizzes covering homework assignments and class discussions: Tests will be given every two to four chapters; not having homework will put you behind in class so come prepared!
We have moved on from Government to Economics. We will be discussing three books…Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, Ancient Rome and How It Affects You Today, and The Money Mystery. We will also be using the Economics / Work and Prosperity Book from Abeka
