Savvas Economics High School Social Studies Curriculum 

Savvas is excited to announce its NEW Economics program! Helping students build an essential, life-long understanding of core economics principles, Savvas Economics features motivating, hands-on activities, interactive graphics, animations, and videos to help build relevant economic literacy. The program bridges time-tested best practices, curriculum standard expectations, and technology to help prepare students to be college and career ready. Available in print, digital, and blended options.

Savvas’s Economics program uses a research tested four-part learning model to enhance teaching and understanding.

  1. Connect Students make learning personal as they connect to content through a story and activate their prior knowledge, personal experience, and perspective.
  2. Investigate Students actively learn, investigate, and acquire key content knowledge through a variety of components both in print and digital.
  3. Synthesize Students extend their understanding by applying what they just learned in a quick recap and “pull-it-all-together” exercise before they move on to the next lesson.
  4. Demonstrate Students demonstrate their understanding through a variety of authentic, formative, and summative assessments.
