Junior Achievement Program RESOURCES
Junior Achievement, in cooperation with the Social Science Education Consortium, has developed 12 "Economic Investigations" designed to help High School students achieve a deeper understanding of current economic issues. Each investigation:
Provides a classroom orientation to explore economic concepts similar to the type of experience students would encounter in a laboratory science course.
Reinforces the development of quantitative skills by bringing economic concepts to life through the use of real situations.
Focuses on intriguing economics questions designed to spark student and teacher interest.
