Would you like some help teaching Government or Economics? I saw these two live online courses being offered by Founders Academy in January for junior and senior high school students. They can either be taken as an 8 or 16 week course. Government 101 and Economics 101 courses begin on January 14 and you will need to order a textbook for your student. Each course is $149.00 and if you have more than one student taking the class you get a multiple student discount. There is an Open House on January 7 at 8:30 pm EST that you can see if you would like your student to take one of these classes, but you need to RSVP. Click Here to read the details.
If your student isn’t to the junior or senior high level yet, Founders Academy offers classes for younger students too.
