"I found my work with blendedschools both personally and professionally satisfying. It was fun and challenging to put what I do in the classroom every day into the Blackboard platform. The team at blendedschools and VLINC were a great support and their instruction in what an effective online course should be was indispensable. During the development of the course I would often find myself so engrossed in the course that I could lose track of time! I learned so much that I continue to use as an instructor in both my regular classroom and in VLINC courses. This experience has been so gratifying; this has been largely due to the talented and dedicated staff at blendedschools and VLINC."
Macroeconomics is a textbook-free course designed for high school juniors and seniors covering one semester. I designed with the overarching objective that students would build skills and knowledge that would enable them to understand both historical and current economic data and events. Successful completion of Macroeconomics will also provide students with the ability to participate more effectively in both the larger economy and our democracy.
