The teacher's guide and the online course option, both new with the fourth edition of Basic Economics, transform the textbook into a comprehensive course, deeply based on principles, that should be manageable for homeschooling parents and very interesting for students.
Basic Economics is a must read!
So much of what is taught today as economics is 180 degrees opposite of the truth. It’s all about how you think and this book will make sure you get it right.

This course should be required for all high school students!
We were originally introduced to Basic American Government as a product review, but by the end of the first lesson, I knew this was a program I was adding in for my two high school students. Methodical and using an easy-to-understand format, this course dives deep into the origins of our country and its government and shows how quickly we fell away – not to mention how far we have continued to spiral.
With a mix of reading and video, plus review elements that are both handwritten and computerized, American Government helps to teach to multiple learning styles and can easily be completed independently by high school students.
However, I do recommend going through this course with your children – not just for how much you can learn, but so you can have amazing conversations with them about the material and the current state of affairs.
After completing this American Government course with my two oldest students, I know that we will be back when the other two are ready because we have found the gold standard for American Government in Boundary Stone’s course.
In response to January 2021
In January 2021, with so much in the USA to be concerned about, I contemplated what I could do to make a difference. Much of what I had been doing was sharing information and “take action” letters and petitions. But in January, I wanted to do more. Remembering history books from a Constitutional class that I had taken many years ago, I went to my bookshelves to seek them out. They were “The Basic History of the United States,” by Clarence Carson. After reading them I realized what I could do: Share them with young adults with (and without) children. Searching for the history books online was discouraging at first until one site suggested I might find them sold at Boundary Stone. Because I helped my daughter school her 4 children and saw the amazing results and benefits of their home education, I sought out those who wanted to do the same. So far I have donated Paul Cleveland and Clarence Carson’s books to 9 homeschooling families (most of them had never schooled their children before). I believe in the tremendous power of education, especially when that education is founded in truth. We need the real history or we will repeat the history of tyrannical governments.
Cleveland & Carson offer truthful history. Not only have I donated to young adults with children, but I have also given many books to single and middle-aged adults. I was asked to give a talk about what I am doing, and at that meeting I shared Boundary Stone with the group. Since education is so valuable I’d like to share here:
Even better than we hoped for
I am a middle school teacher who also homeschooled our son for his senior year. I looked at several government and economics curriculum selections, but we chose Boundary Stone for several reasons. First, he is a visual learner and wanted something online. This turned out to be a great choice, because he especially appreciated the videos that are a part of both courses. Second, he said that the course was thorough, yet easy to navigate. Third, from a teacher/parent perspective, I felt utterly confident that the instruction would line up with our values and provide a solid foundation of government and economics for him to grow with. I was not disappointed! In fact, I now want to go back through the course myself and relearn government and economics from a solid Biblical worldview. Lastly, considering our current national & political challenges, I am more glad than ever that we chose this course for our son so he can be a properly informed citizen.
Are you falling for common economic myths?
So much of what we hear about the economy through the media is based on commonly held myths. These myths keep us from recognizing the best public policy options.
