This is the second year of a two-year sequence in IB Economics. In this course, students will focus on the International and Development units of the curriculum. In addition to regular essay-style tests, students will complete their Internal Assessment portfolio by writing two additional commentaries on articles from today’s news. Strong analytical skills and a proven understanding of mathematics are needed. Students will be expected to read a variety of college-level journals and texts. Daily homework assignments will be the focus of student-centered, seminar-style discussions. The IB HL Economics exam in May will test the material from both the IB HL Economics 1 and IB HL Economics 2 courses and is a requirement of the course.
A summer reading assignment is required for this course.
